Love and Loss


On behalf of mum I'd like to let all her blogging friends know that our beautiful dad and mum's soul mate passed away peacefully yesterday just after four. He waited until all of us kids and mum were with him, took a few more breaths and slipped quietly off into a land filled with rainbows and seven pointed stars.

We love him so much and will miss him forever.

Your support and condolences mean so much to mum and I know she appreciates all your kind words.

Thank you so much on behalf of mum, us kids and all the entire family....

The world's loss and heaven's gain.

Joyce - I am sending you as much love and hugs as I can across The Pond. I've been thinking of you so much these last few days.

Hang on - you've got such a fantastic family and they need you now more than ever.

Sorry - waffling again, but you know me.

Dear, dear Joyce. My heart goes out to you and to your entire family. This is incredibly, heartbreakingly sad. Just know that those of us who follow your blog and countless others who may have just visited in passing, have been so touched by your sharing your life and your talents with us. And part of that life and such a gift to you and your own positive energies was this obviously unique and dear man. We will hold you and your family in our hearts. As hard as it is, go back to what you know to be truly real and remember that the heartstrings of spiritual connection between you will never ever be broken or die. I am so very, truly, truly sorry for this huge loss. Blessings to all of you.

we still think of them as being close. We feel their warmth, and remember special things they said and did, and times we shared."
