Post subject: my man 11/12/08
i know many askbaby members are aware, but i thought i might write it here as its my first valentines day without him he died suddenly at work 2 weeks before christmas of heart failure its been abit horrible today... all i see is people kissing, big red heart shaped balloons and flowers, etc. i know its not their fault but it really cuts deep. i wake up every day with a feeling of desperation cos i want to cuddle with him or tell him i love him and i cant and the pain is searing in my chest. we held his funeral 4 days ago and i had a poem read out for him that i wrote on behalf of our kids:
We have the bestest daddy, that ever could exist,
His love`s felt here forever, his presence always missed,
Our daddy went to sleep, one misty cold December,
But happy memories could never die, would always be remembered.
Funny jokes, laughter, games, smiles, kisses, cuddles,
Rough and tumble, silly names and jumping in the puddles,
Our daddy was so very funny, blessed every heart he touched,
Family, friends, children and mummy loved him so very much.
Daddy went to sleep so suddenly, we donít know why he had to go,
But donít be angry, please donít cry, Ďcause this is all we need to know,
When daddy grew his angel wings, there was no suffering, no painful harm,
He passed away so peacefully, into his mother`s arms.
He`s now in a blissful, peaceful place, a long, long way away,
Where there are no worries, work or pain, and the sun shines every day.
So remember our daddy`s always watching, whatever life may bring,
wherever you go, whatever you do, and whenever the birds will sing.

Puss, you know I think you are such a wonderful person, so strong and brave. Your poem is beautiful, and I am certain Steve is looking down on you, your boys and that little one inside you, and he is proud of you all. xxxxx
After 3 and half years of ttc, tests being clear and unable to adopt, we have decided to become a patchwork family. Me, my hubby and stepchildren.
Its so sad to know I will never hear the word 'Mommy'.x

i'm so sorry for your loss and heartache, the poem is beautful.
My father died when my mother was 3 months pregnant with me the day before valentines day, they were due to marry on valentines day.
I just want to say to keep his memory alive for your daughter as my mother hasnt, I dont even have a photo of him and its something that upsets me still even though I am now 27.
