Sad News

My dad passed away suddenly this morning, so I hope my stamping friends will forgive me if I am MIA for a few days.  He had been going through some health issues but went out to dinner with my brother last night and was in good spirits.  I am very thankful that he is no longer in pain, because his ailment caused him a great deal of it and he bore it without complaining.  My family spent the day together upholding each other, and our pain was tempered with the knowledge of being able to see him again in heaven as he was a believer.  He went quickly and that was a blessing as well.  Hug your loved ones and tell them you love them; you may not realize how short your time with them will be.


I love you all, my stamping friends!

LeAnne -
So, so sorry about your Dad - sorry for you, not for him. He is pain-free and smiling and happier than he's ever been. You will be in my prayers through the next few days - even though you know he is well and whole, it will be hard to accept that he's no longer here. [speaking from experience - last year I lost a good friend, my sister, and my Mom - my Dad and my husband have been gone for several years.] It's never easy to lose a loved one, but God "built" us with feelings and He will walk beside you through it.
Hugs,
Laura
PS - I write as a friend, even though we've never met - reading your emails/posts makes it seem like we're old friends .......

I am so sorry for the loss of your father. I am glad his suffering is over, and you can remember the good times with him. It's been over 16 years since I lost my father on Dec 16, and I remember taking comfort in knowing he didn't suffer long. He was eating ice cream, laughing with my sisters, 2 hours later, he slipped into a coma, and was gone by morning. We should all go quickly.
God bless you and your family.
