My Dad: August 1930 - December 2010

My Dad passed away last night peacefully in his sleep.
 He had not been well and had been in the hospital.
 He was home only a couple of weeks,
 but was not recovering as well as we had hoped.

He is at peace and will be missed.

Take care!

Such sadness this time of year. But there are good things to ponder too - he went peacefully, he isn't suffering and you have the memories to save and bring out again and again. May you find comfort this wonderful season.

Hi, Jen;
Catching up on your blog this morning and am so very sorry to hear this news. I hope you're holding up okay. It's hard to know what to say in such situations but sometimes it's just nice to know that your friends are thinking of you and that they care.

Oh my goodness, Jen! I'm so sorry to be so late in reading of your father's passing! I thought he was doing better. :(

I'm comforted to know he died peacefully in his sleep, without pain or suffering. Knowing he is in the arms of our Lord is the most comforting of all.

Mega Hugs to you, Sweet Friend. This will no doubt, be a difficult holiday for your family. I'll be thinking of you & holding you close in prayer.

fondly,
Rett

p.s. My DH was in the hospital last week with more chest pain but thankfully, no ♥ damage. Very stressful on everyone! That is why I missed reading about your Dad.
