I don't know if anyone actually watched the memorial service they had today. He wasn't really apart of my generation, but of course I was sad for the loss of a great music icon. There was a part of the service though that really got to me. I'm guessing it was towards the end (since I stopped watching after awhile) that they had his daughter say something. I can't quote it but it was something along the lines of since i've been born he's been the best dad ever.
Each time I see this I start bawling. I lost my dad at 9 and even though she's was a few years older then I was during the lost it brought back everything from when I first lost mine. Even though i'm trying to get through this loss of my child she absolutely broke my heart into pieces. I know for the most part how she feels and it hurts that we both won't ever experience the same joys you get from having a father throughout her life. I'm just glad that all of his children will have a wonderful support system of aunts, uncles, and grandparents.
I'm sorry this is so long but it's been bothering me since I watched it this afternoon.
