A little bit of Sad News

I received some very sad news that my Dear Dad passed away on the 18th March 2010 ... after quite a long illness - so I think it is a blessing for my Dad - not so for the rest of the family.

But we are now back home after four days of very long riding back to catch the ferry home.

I will be not attending to any quilting stuff until after the Easter break now .... but feel free to leave a message if you need to.

So sad, Jane. Hugs and sympathy to you and your family. Having lost both my parents to cancer in the last 18 months, I know how hard it is to reconcile the blessing for them and the sorrow we hold. Hold your memories close to your heart, and try to talk about those memories as much as you can. I found it helped to keep the memories alive, and also eased the pain just a little.

Oh Jane, I am so sorry to read about your Dear Dad, so very hard on all of you. It is my Dear Dad's anniversary coming up next week. 24 years on it still makes me sad at this time of year.
Thinking of you and will keep you in my prayers. Hugs Elly
