    Hi Jen,

    Great to see you on here again! Sorry to hear about the Priest. I am sure that Friday will be a tough day for everyone but I know that you will all get through it as well.

    I can so relate to so much of what you say about your dad, and like you, I still miss my dad loads as well. I guess that we always will. And again like you, the firsts were tough as well, birthdays, christmas anniversary etc. But we get through them don’t we and it does get easier with time. As you say, your dad is around you and I’m sure that he is looking out for you all.

    Great to see you round here again and remember that we are always here for you!




    Lovely to see you, Jen; thanks for posting :)

    Love to you and your family

    Thanks for still caring enough to check in on everyone. I am sorry for the loss of your dear friend. But now he and your Dad can have fun in Heaven. I am glad you and your Mom are doing ok. I’m sure you never get over the loss of someone you love, but hopefully time makes it hurt a tiny bit less. Take care.

    Love, -Pam


    thankyou for looking in,I think we all do that!Sorry to hear of the priest,your confidantes passing,another trauma really for you
    good luck Janet


    Jen….how nice of you to check in with us. I can hardly believe that it has been a year; where has the time gone?
    The first birthday, wedding anniversary, holiday, and day of passing always are difficult to overcome. We have to ease not rush through it, as pain is the price we pay for love.
    I am so sorry to hear of the passing of another person, who had such enormous impact on your life and I will be thinking of you on Friday.

    It is good to hear that life is moving forward in all other aspects and that your Mom is occupied with her family and house renovations. I wish for all good things to continue.
    Please stay in touch. You are missed on this board.



    Hello Everyone!

    It’s been quite a long time since I posted, but I’m still on every day reading and thinking of you all. Thought it was time for an update, of sorts. June 25th was the 1 year Anniversary of Dad’s passing. The day itself was okay, but the week leading up to it was tough. I miss him every day, but I know he’s around us when we need him, and that helps.

    Dad’s priest, who was such a huge part of our lives those last few months and gave Dad so much comfort and peace in his finals days passed away of a brain tumor on the weekend. He was diagnosed after Dad passed, but looking back now, it was clear that there was probably something wrong even then. He was the most down-to-earth person I’ve ever met. He even smoked – awful, yes, but I actually think it’s one of the things that made Dad like him so much – it made him seem like such a normal person, with faults of his own. He gave his entire life to other people – listening, guiding, helping any way he could to bring people peace. Any time we called, he’d show up at the house or hospice to visit with us and Dad. There is no doubt he’s in a beautiful place, surrounded by all the people he helped in their final days. The funeral is Friday, and I imagine it will be a day of pretty high emotions. I am honoured to have met him though, and will be honoured to attend a celebration of his incredible life.

    Not much else to tell. We are all doing as well as can be expected. We all have our good days and bad days, but are there to support each other. Mom is okay… working, doing renovations on her house, and spending time with us and the grandkids.

    I read daily, follow your blogs and think of you all constantly.

    All my love,
