I want to thank you all for
the kindness you have shown to my family
following the death of Dad.
The cards, the text messages and all the emails
were so touching.
I would love to respond to them all
but it is just overwhelming.
Your love and concern
for us in the passing of Dad
warms my heart.
I cannot tell you how blessed I feel
by the relationships my blog has fostered.
We are all doing well.
Weird as it may seem,
these days feel easier than our previous months/years.
Watching Alzheimer's ravage our dad's personality,
stealing him away bit by bit was incredibly hard.
We cried many times.
We lost him a little more every day.
Believing in eternal life through the acceptance of Jesus
makes letting him go truly joyful.
We know he is in Heaven,
our true home,
fully healed and rejoicing.
We are counting our blessings
for all the years we had together
and anxiously awaiting
the time when we will be reunited.
Hats off to you Dad...
you left a legacy of love.
