Beginnings And Endings

My Dad passed away Friday, March 14th. My brother and I will be busy for awhile with what ever comes next so I plan to take a break from everything I can for about 6 weeks.

Thank you so much for your kind words and prayers for our family. I don't really have the words to express how I feel right now. I'm surrounded by my friends and doing okay, I'm also ready for life to get back to some sort of normal.

I'll resume stamping and blogging when the dust settles and I get to get into my new routine.

Until then, don't forget - time is precious.

Take care of yourself!

Jan, I'm so sorry about your Dad. I've lost both my parents and it just stinks. It gets less painful but it always is there under the surface. I lost my Mom in 1997 and my Dad in 2005. My Dad's situation was much like your Dad's (cancer - and I'd brought him home and taken care of him). Hang in there and feel free to email me if you want to chat.
