Mum and Dad on the farm, with me 1944
Dad, Christmas at Jason's house 2006. How he loved an elegant meal!

Family is always paramount for me and today it seems to be everywhere, and I am ever so grateful. I have my biological family which is very busy rallying to be here next week for the observance of Dad's passing and life, my work family which is sustaining me with love, hugs, flowers and fun, and then I have this wonderful cyber-family that has kept me afloat for so long, listening to my angst over Dad. Your love, your prayers, your positive thoughts and bouquets of friendship, are keeping me going. There is an interesting journey of grief and celebration ahead and I will be away a lot and busy over the next 10 days or so, but know you are with me in my heart. LM will be by my side, as well as many other dear loved ones.
The immediate legacy of Dad's death is a huge family reunion which will commence next Wednesday. I will take lots of pictures to share with you.
The sun is shining here today, there is melting and an ease in my struggle, too.
Lots of love to you all!

Celebrate with your loved ones; that is most likely what your dad would want. My dad will be 82 in a few weeks and he always lets us know that when he passes he does not want tears he wants joy and fond memories.
Dad's are so special to a girl. There is a place in our hearts for them that nobody can ever replace.
