Susan-You and your Dad are in my prayers.
May the choirs of angels come to greet you.
May they speed you to paradise.
May the Lord enfold you in His mercy.
May you find eternal life.
The Lord is my light and my help;
It is he who protects me from harm.
The Lord is the strength of my days;
Before whom should I tremble with fear?
There is one thing I ask of the Lord;
That He grant me my heartfelt desire.
To dwell in the courts of our God
Everyday of my life in His presence.
I'm very sorry for your loss. May God give you comfort and hope with the knowledge that he is in a much better place of peace and joy. I wish for you blessings and trust in our faith, try not to pay attention to the human aspect...peace be with you.
PS - I lost my dad on the third week this past Nov., after long suffering. I understand your pain. I miss him terribly, but I'm happy he now rests in peace.
May our Blessed Lord hold you and keep you safely tucked in His arms. I lost my Father at an early age and without a Priest, also. You have the Most High right by your side right now. My lose only increased my Faith and I pray it will for you, also. The very fact that you are reaching out is a testament to your own Faith. We all know the Lord works in Mysterious Ways far above our comprehension. Cling to your Faith. It will sustain you always. All things happen only through God's Will. Prayers for you and your Father.
