A spot of bad news

Just a quick note. After a long decline my father (Jack) died this morning. He was 87. It was not unexpected and he has not been at all well this week.

I'm currently feeling a bit odd.

We'll return to our normal programming soon enough.

anon!

  2. Lynne,
    My sympathies at your sad loss. Even when there has been a slow decline, even when we can say "it was a good life, well lived", it's still a wrench to lose one we love. May Jack's memory burn brightly, and recollections of good times shared bring you joy.

  3. i understand completely. we lost my dad 4 years ago, and he was a bit younger than yours. he was 75. it was sudden. he had a stroke on may 22, and passed away on june 4. you will feel odd and disconnected. and you will hurt. you will cry. i still do on occasion. as i tell my children, he's still in our hearts. i tell my oldest son to look in the mirror when he misses grandpa. he's the spitting image. you will find your own way, but you will remember.

  4. Oh Lynne. I am so, so sorry. All my thoughts and hopes and prayers and voodoo candles are for you tonight, and please know you have a friend way on the other side of the earth who is pushing the very best karma your way.

    You're lovely. And I am very sorry for your loss.

  8. You will feel a little odd for a while and there will always be that empty spot in your heart, I know, I lost my mum 4 years ago aged 59, so a big hug goes out to you from me.
