    My father passed away New Years Eve. He was diagnosed with Parkinsons 12 years ago. He has been really sick since August. I knew he wasn't going to be able to come to the wedding because he has been in a nursing home since Aug. but it is still really sad to know he will not be able to walk me down the aisle.

    But I did get my dance on Thanksgiving!!!

        Oh no, I am so sorry for your loss. I just read your other thread about dancing with your dad on Turkey Day and it totally made me tear up. I am so happy for you that you had a special moment with him.

                That is so awful Geralyn. My deepest sympathies. It is so hard knowing that someone you love will not be with you on one of the most important days of your life - but take strength in knowing that he will always be looking in on you & making sure you are ok! I feel my step-father with me all the time! I also have included him in our wedding week by adding a memorial page to our welcome books.

                I wanted to honor him in some way that wouldn't upset my mom anymore than she already would be on the wedding day - I thought the memorial page was a nice way to do it. And for only me, I have a memory frame with his picture in it to attach to my bouquet. Here is a picture of it...

                Take care & be strong. And if you can't be strong then just know your friends at BDW are here for you...to cry to, to vent, to scream...anything!

                      I'm so sorry to hear about your father. FI's father was diagnosed with leukemia last June and passed away in September. It's not easy. Just know that it's OK to cry, whether it's 10 minutes or 10 years from now. We're all here for you. This forum was wonderful with helping me through the passings in my family last year.
