Sorrow and Loss

At 2 am this morning, my Daddy passed away. I went to see him last evening and I feared it would be the last time. He was a wonderful father to me and husband to my Mom.

I want to thank Rosemary at Content in a Cottage and Robin at Decorating Tennis Girl for the two Sunshine Awards they sent me yesterday. Please excuse me for not passing those awards along just yet.

I will be away from my blog for a bit. Thank you to all of you who come to visit me. This blog has been a safe place for me. A place where I could come each day to feel more cheerful. My Daddy suffered from Alzheimer's for several years. They have been very difficult years for both my Mom and I. Thank you for befriending me and for giving each day a bit of sunshine.

Love,
Susan and Bentley

  8. I am so sorry for your sadness. My father passed away five years ago and he had
    Alzheimers as well. There had been so many difficult times but also some very child like loving times that I cherish. Since he left I felt a peace in my heart that he was no longer struggling but he was whole again. I hope the peace comes to you. ((((HUGS))))

  18. I am so sorry to hear about your daddy. I saw my daddy the night before he died and had a dream the next morning that he told me he was O.K. I was 4 1/2 months pregnant with my first baby. I felt comforted from that dream. God will carry you through. Kathy Brockwell
