They say time is medicine ; I now believe it's a myth

They say time is medicine ; I now believe it's a mythIf time were medicine it would heal our wounds but no amount of time could ever make us not miss you dada.

You are missed so badly ; my heart can't explain how much, each day I wake up I wish you were still there.

To tell us where we're lacking and keep loving us like you did. I hope Jesus is taking good care of you; more than we did.

People tell me time heals wounds but today it still makes me feel, like you left us today and not two years ago.It makes me feel the same way I did when you left us that day. No amount of time , fun or enjoyment can make us move on in life, without thinking about you each day. You are not just a memory but a part of us and you continue to live with us each day. I still feel it's unfair we didn't get to say goodbye.

I remember how you used to bring a smile on every person's face you meet. I am trying each day to be just like you, but it hurt's so much that your not here, to show me how to do it, just like you did, with all that humour that made our bellies ache.Β 

I did not take all my time to be with while you were there, I was busy with work, friends and finding a career and regret all those hours, for I would have traded them all just to spend time with you , had I known you'll leave us much sooner. Cause all this means nothing without you.

You are our saviour now and guiding us through ; but I still cannot accept that your time was through ! For noone can ever how show us to be strong, as you did and we miss you so much each day and ask sweet Jesus to keep you safe with him , until we meet again.

Love you Dada I can't believe it's 2 years it still feels like your there with me, we were talking about my wedding, miss you so badly, bless your soul , Rest in Peace ;

We love you loads and miss you so much .

A tribute to the most wonderful dad

" Philip Clinton Williams " . Love you so much dada.

Sending warm hugs right back to you\ud83d\udc1d Fatima Williams...It is so very difficult for little girls to say goodbye to their daddies....That child's heart within is broken, but the women we are now will nurture our souls so we can move beyond the pain and keep living...Much love to you...XO

Thank you dear Franci\ud83d\udc1dEugenia Hoffman This was a tough one to write and we missed him so much this Christmas and new year. There hasn't been a day I haven't thought and wish he were with me. I'm sure your Mom is super proud of the wonderful person you are Franci. It's the graces we receive from them that shine right through us.

Fatima, my mom passed away 49 years ago, yet I feel she is with me every day. As stated by Milos Djukic, fractals are forever. Your tribute to your dad is beautiful and I am sure he is pleased to have such a loving daughter.

Dear Fatima Williams honour your respective fathers immensely by being beautiful souls, for no parent wants to see their children in a state of hurt but in a state of blessing. That is the reality of love, we all know love when the magnitude of love quakes within our own heart - and my intention here is not to awaken that hurt but to show how awaken that love is within you both - for it is this awakened state that showers strength into the life we have and hence become the substance of winged blessings. For sure our time provides us more gifts than simply the photograph but our hearts contain the gifts that a greater relationship gave us. Now as I absorb the meaning of the love you express, this is what enriches me in my own life - and this the grounded reality of how we choose to interact in this virtual space - that the gifts we find in that are more precious than success. Did you lose a father or did you win love? If winning is society's chief credo this is the only kind of winning I want to seek.

Thank you Sara Jacobovici has graciously mentioned in the comments below, on how we can create an online virtual space where loved one's can come and visit and pay respects online. Where my unborn children or family in the near future can reminisce the memories of our loved ones. This is absolutely, a brilliant thing and I wish my parents had done the same, it would have helped connect with my grand parents whom I hardly remember as they had partrd when I was very young.

I felt and heard your words coming straight from the heart Fatima Williams. It's been 20 years for me since my father passed away. I miss him today as much as the day he passed but the wound is a separate experience. I find that each year a layer of scar tissue covers the wound. It just makes breathing easier when I do miss him. Wishing you all the best Fatima.

The online space has opened up for creating memories of loved one's that have passed https://www.everplans.com/articles/the-top-10-online-memorial-websites and here memory capsules as a hive serves to do the same thing. My view is that personal space is not just about our work life, it is the expression of life. As time passes and the virtual world merges with the physical one, spaces where loved one's can come and visit and pay respects online will become far greater in form than it is now. The stories of Philip Clinton Williams live within you and this is where I differentiate between sharing as publishing and a life shared. This is also a very delicate line because it involves highly emotional aspects of our life - and in a world driven largely by marketers and professionals one cannot assume that people who have used advantage as a strategy, have the same motivation as those who genuinely read obituaries. I do read obituaries because the best one's give me a sense of life. Since often I do not know these families or people, I am free respect human life as a human being. I also read these obituaries because I want to be intelligent about grief, and there are myths about grief that we are not cognoscente of and if a part of life is increasing our intelligence about mortality. There is great reverence in the one thing that we all have a commonality with. At the same time I also note that the spiritual also contains ego. We continue to treat social and business networks from the view of connection - but affinity is far greater than that. I want to understand my relationship with grief, just as writing this buzz provides comfort for you and can be highly cathartic in that regard. Affinity needs to be as close to authenticity and the heart as possible, and that in it self inspires in us greater intelligence.

Anees Zaidi I thought about you when I was writing this for my dad a day ago, because you said your daughter has my name. Thank you for making me feel special by saying that.
