Broken hearted

On Thursday the 27th August my dad passed away peacefully after his short illness at the age of 77.
Jennifer and I were with him at the end, Jennifer slipped out of the room briefly as my uncle was on the phone and I said to my dad "its ok to go now" ... the room went very still, peaceful and calm  and I knew my dad had gone and was at rest.
We spent some time still with him , taking to him and having a cuppa before we felt ready to leave him there .
Thank you for all your support and kind words throughout this journey of life, which has helped me greatly to cope ((((hugs))) to you all back
