I'm sorry for your loss. My dad is gone too. Peace, and may you have a good new year.
Thank you for dropping by and for your kind words, Gunnar!
My Grampy was born on this day in 1911. Here is to good strong men. You were blessed to have a dad that was there, even when you may not have realized it. I wish everyone did.
Good strong men, indeed, Annie! Good role models in our lives, and for that I am grateful. I am more like my father than either of us ever cared to admit. :-)
Please accept my condolences for your losses; even though they are not recent, they are still losses and a certain amount of grieving never really ends.We were blessed to be able to spend the holidays with family, and do it every year. Each time, i do whatever i can to make sure everyone can get there, because we never know.
You are right that when loved ones depart, a hole in the heart remains forever. I am delighted you are able to get your family altogether for the holidays. Family is really what it's all about!
It will be 17 years on Jan. 4th since my dad passed away. Time lessons the pain of the loss and thank goodness the memories still live on.
January 9th will be the 20th year of my mother's passing, Ida. A long time ago in life years, but the memories of those days remain with us forever. Saying goodbye is never easy, we always wish we could share just one more day. You are right that we still have memories to treasure!
Your comments are always appreciated... they make me smile! :-)
