Love and Thank You!

Hi everyone! 
I'm still here. 
Life has changed and we are finding a new normal.

I just wanted to send out some love and big thank yous for all the sweet thoughts and prayers.
You guys are amazing.
I wish I could hug each and everyone of you. 

We are wading thru tons of documents and of course photos. 
These are a couple of my favorites. 

 This is my dad and my aunt...probably late 1930's. 
Isn't it just the cutest picture?! 
Cracks! me! up!

And of course dad as a sailor. Isn't he so cute! 

Spending lots of time helping mom start life over again. 
It's a hard thing to do after 53 years of marriage...

Talk to you soon!

Hi Liz, I missed your post about your Dad passing away and am sorry for your loss. I love the photos you shared. There is so much to go through and so much paper work isn't there. Blessings to you. Pamela

I'm sorry sweetie.
Losing a parent is never easy.
I lost my dad almost two years ago.
I always say, that losing a parent feels a bit like a phantom limb. You keep forgetting it's not there.
You never get over it, you just get use to it.

Melissa said...

You are right that first photo is absolute wonderful - beautiful and funny at the same time.

I agree with Juju - you don't get over it - you just get more used to the loss of a loved one.

Memories of my paternal grandfather still startle me with both their randomness and vividness even after eight years.

My dad passed away 6 Christmases ago. He was 60. I know what you're going through, and I will continue to pray for you and your family.

What cute photos. That first one is so, so cute. You dad was a handsome man!
