#105

I just wanted to let you all know Dad passed away peacefully in his sleep at 11:45 last night...I like to think Mom was saying to him, "Would you please hurry up?! The ice in my gin and tonic is melting, you're slow as molasses." Now they're together. And I miss them both. If you'd like to read a bit more about Dad, I wrote a bit about him on my other blog.

I very much appreciated all your positive thoughts and prayers for Dad, thank you :-) Also, Happy New Year to you all; I'm looking forward to 2009 very much!

And...here we go!

Jack said...

Happy New Year... I'm up

NoBS said...

I'm up!

And I just want to say, there is something rather calming in the way (sleeping) and the timing (just before the start of a new year) of your father's passing. It's hard to explain...like he was truly ending one journey to begin another...

I hope for you peaceful thoughts and don't forget to laugh from time to time when you think of him.

Julie said...

So sorry to hear about your Dad, it is always so hard to lose someone you love so. Thinking of you...
Happy New Year to all!

I am glad he is with your mom. I know that made it easier for me when my Grandma passed. She had waited a long time to be with my Granddaddy and know they were both happy together. (((HUGS)))

Mine is up and Happy Friday! :)

My Friday is filled.

Jasra/Lisa said...

1. The world is _much warmer today_. (so the pipes have thawed finally)

2. _"Good morning"_ was the last thing I said.

3. I wonder _why I keep getting so sick this winter_.

4. _Love and peace_ at the end of all things.

5. There's something to be said for _a boy who brings you coffee_.

6. _In his arms_ is where I want to be.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to _getting antibiotics in my body_, tomorrow my plans include _sleep, sleep and more sleep_ and Sunday, I want to _feel healthy again_!

*hugs* I'm sorry to hear about your dad, Janet, but I'm glad that it sounded so peaceful.

Barb said...
