Thank you

Thank you everyone for your love, support and prayers during this past week while I've been in Western Australia visiting my Mum and Dad.  I would not have had the strength to go through what I have, supporting Mum, looking after Dad after he rallied on Monday and then coping with his passing on Thursday morning, without knowing that all my wonderful friends in blogland were with me every step of the way.  I can never thank you enough for your kindness and love.

I will be staying in Western Australia with Mum until mid May, hoping that my presence here a little longer will be of some comfort to her.

I am going to finish this post with some photos in remembrance of my Dad.  

Take care everyone and remember to tell your family you love them.

Anne  xx

A touching tribute to your father. May he enjoy his time with loved ones gone before until you meet again. I hope your mother will find your presence comforting and that she will be able to see her way forward. Hugs to both of you. xx

Oh Anne, I've just caught up with what's been happening in your life. I am so sorry to hear that you have lost someone so special. So glad that you were able to spend time with him in the past year. Hugs to you and your Mum

He was a handsome chap! Again, I am so sorry for your loss. May you find strength in your family, and within, as you all grieve and remember him. Lots of love to you all!

What a handsome man your Dad was. Hugs to you all during this time. It's wonderful to hear that you will be with your Mum a bit longer. :)

Wonderful photos and memories Anne.........
Staying longer with your mum will be a great help and comfort to both of you I'm sure.

Sit and have lots of cuppas and talk and laugh, remember with love and build more memories to carry with you.
It's never easy so allow yourself time.......
Just a thought before I go, perhaps you could write some little notes. Words of love and encouragement to your mum and put them in unexpected places. She'll find them in the days/weeks after you've gone home and they will be a lovely surprise in her day.
