Umm, things didn't go as planned today.

The understatement of the year. I'm not sure how much I will be around bloggerville. I don't know. I find all of you to be very good for me. You make me feel better. With that in mind - I just don't know.

How to say this...I guess there just isn't an easy way. My Dad passed away this morning. Very unexpected - massive heart attack. He wanted that. No lingering.

So ladies, if you could say a prayer for those of us who remain - I would appreciate it. And if you want to say something for Dad - thank-you.

Okay, I'm going to get off here for now. Please understand if you email me why I am not getting back to you.

Dear Denise,
I am so very sorry for your loss. I lost my mom in June and it is never easy. Try to remember that he is in a better place (mom gave us some amazing glimpses in her final days) and is watching over you. He will never be far away. You, your family and your dad will be in my prayers. We will be here when you need us.

So very sorry to hear about your father passing away. I lost my Dad 4 years ago - I remember the priest told us at that time that 'Grief is the price that we pay for love'. Please know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Please know that you DO have LOTS of Blogger friends out there for you but right now you will be surrounded by those you love in person. We completely understand and will be here for you when you get back. The best I can do for you right now my friend is send some cyber hugs your way ((((HUGS))))

Donna said...

I'm so sorry for your loss. Surround yourself with those close to you, mourn together, and share your memories. Please accept my deepest condolences.

Lee said...

Oh Denise, what a heartbreak. You just take your time and grieve and heal and come back and blog whenever you're ready. And if you need to talk, rant, or cry, you just drop me an email. I lost my dad three years ago - maybe I can say something that will help.

In the meantime, I know how raw you feel right now. Try to remember this: Even though most of your memories of your dad make you tearful now, some day those memories will make you smile. It really and truly happens. Honest.

You and your family are in my thoughts.
