Good Thing...

....It's a good thing that February was completed so early. My father passed away last week after a three week illness. He was 87, lived a good and long life. I posted a LONG missive about John's life.

I have requested that all his ties come to me. I am going to bead embroider spirit dolls for the family.

I'm so sorry to hear about your Dad, Liz. You were blessed to have had him with you for so many years. In truth, he will always be with you. I love the idea of the spirit dolls. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Liz, that is so wonderful that you will make spirit dolls of your fathers ties. Your family will surely treasure them.

My prayers are with you. I'm so sorry about your father. I think he would enjoy knowing that his ties will live on as Spirit dolls with your family.

May his love be with you and surround you wherever you go and may your love surround him wherever he is. You will take great comfort in making the dolls, and perhaps, like I did, break through the wall of grief to where you feel connected to him again. Love, Robin A.

May your family all treasure the gift of the spirit dolls you are making -- what a wonderful remembrance of your father to give them!
My condolences to you, truly, Cathy
