Goodbye, Dear Father-In-Law.....

Just to let you know that Dear Hubby's father passed away last Friday.  Not that you knew him or would have ever heard of him but it is the reason I haven't been around for the last week.  Dear Hubby and I scooted down the road a piece (that's 4 hours in Southern-ese) last Wednesday afternoon, spent 36 hours in ICU waiting room and the last 5 hours of FIL's life with him.  What a touching but heart-wrenching moment.  One I hope to never have to repeat.



 Father-In-Law       Grandfather-In-Law         Dear Hubby
circa 1974

I had limited access to the internet.........just long enough to check emails and the bank account.  I may or may not get a chance to catch up on the blog reading/responding but I'll give it a shot.  And thank you all for your sweet comments about my kids.  Yes, they are very special.


Blessings, Cathi

((Cathi)), I do understand your pain and your sorrow. Being with a parent or other loved one as their life comes to an end is so hard as that life is so vert much a part of your life too. Please know that I have you and your family in my prayers. I feel my brother's and my mother's presence every day and even though they may not be with me in body, they live on in my mind and my spirit and who I am.
Love ya - and we missed you last night.
