My Dad

  I thought I was ready to post again but maybe not ----- Our Grandpa Sparky, my dad, passed away Oct 26th.  (I type this through tear filled eyes)  We celebrated his 93rd birthday Sept 19th, he got sick the first week in Oct, was in ICU and rehab and ICU again. Dr. S pulled him through the first time in ICU, but gave him 2 units of blood to perk him up.  The second time he got sick his body was too tired, the Congestive Heart & Kidney failure was too strong.  Dr S couldn't get the water out of his body and he slipped peacefully away from us.  We all know he's in heaven but miss him terribly.  Mom is doing ok -- she's a strong woman, a survivor and has such a zest for life.  He always said the prayers at family meals and on Thanksgiving she did that,  -- she did a great job, thanking God for our Sparky.

A blogging friend said I'd know when I was ready to start writing again, and that it could be a healing place.  She's right-- thanks for listening..


  1. Glad to see a post from you. I'm so sorry about your Dad. Although I love to find your posts on google reader, don't rush it. Know we are patience and look forward to hearing from you again, but we can wait until you are ready!

  2. I'm so sorry to hear that you've lost your father. I can tell you that it's only temporary but that won't make the sadness any easier. I can tell you that your grief will get better but that won't make you hurt any less right now. But I am lifting you up right now asking for God's strength to hold you up and for Him to remind you of the many joyful moments you had with your father. blessings, marlene
