In Loving Memory

Thomas E. Webster

Since my father died on Tuesday, August 16, 2011 @ 8:30 am, my life has not been the same. My father, Thomas E. Webster, was a Veteran from Saint Louis, Missouri. He was born on July 7, 1929 in Georgia. He was at a nursing home after a long illness: Prostate Cancer, Kidney Failure, and Liver Failure. (Hospice was with him prior to his death and it made all the difference in the world for both of us.) He had a wife, a daughter, and two sons; I am the oldest, and the only daughter. (Daddy’s little girl even at 59 years old!)

Thanks for this opportunity to put a memorial on your website.

    Marcia, My heart goes out to you and I am sorry for your loss.I understand how hard it is grasp the thought that the dad you loved is no longer with you. Please believe that in time your pain will not be so overwhelming.
    No matter how old you are, you will always be “daddy’s little girl.”
    Take care, Joyce

    Dear Marcia,
    Please accept my condolences on the loss of your father. I lost my dad 19 years ago to prostate cancer, and not one day goes by that I don’t miss him, and “talk” to him. It does get easier to deal with as the years to by, but your heart still mourns for him, the wound has healed over and left a scare, which as permanent as it is, doesn’t hurt as much. Your family sounds like a loving, close knit group that will remember him with laughter and tears. My thoughts are with all of you at this difficult time.

    Marcia, I’m sorry for your loss. I know how fresh and intense the grief is right now, and that while you miss him terribly, you must also be relieved that he is past all pain now. Long illnesses take their toll on everyone in the family, but at least we had the time and the opportunity to say a long and loving goodbye. This is such a handsome picture, I hope you will look at the old photos frequently, and reminisce about the good times when he was your strong and healthy Daddy – that’s how he would want you to remember him. ~ Jean
