Five More Minutes With Mom and Dad

Written by Elizabeth Gaughan on June 7, 2012

Mom,

You left without warning and I am left with so many things left unsaid.

I would hug you and tell you I love you.

That I appreciate all the things you did for me.

That I’m happy and proud to have you for a Mom.

Dad,

I left you before you went home.

I couldn’t bear to watch you go, but you were not alone.

I hope when you arrived at the “Family Reunion,” as you used to call Heaven, that you were met with all your lost and sadly missed loved ones.

I wish I had stayed to bid you farewell and tell you I love you and that I am so gratefull to have such a wonderful man as a Dad.
