Losing Dad

Dad lost his long, courageous battle with Alzheimer's yesterday.
He can now dance in eternity with my Dear Mother.
Both together now, watching over us.

Leaving behind a lasting legacy.

Forever in our hearts.

I hope that you understand, Dear Reader's, that I need to take some time.

I will be back soon.



  1. Oh, Karen...I am so very sorry. You have my deepest sympathy. I've lost both of my parents and two of my dear sisters...and it still hurts. I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.

  2. Dearest Karen,

    So Sorry to read this today... Thanks for your lovely email from yesterday, that must have been before you found out about your Dad's passing.
    As hard as it will be, a fact is that he is free from suffering now. I had no idea that you also lost your Mom already... Please receive my sincere condolences and also a warm hug and lots of love. Wishing you strength for going the coming period and you should not, by all means, worry about your blog. We will be here for you.
    Lots of love and prayers,

  3. So sorry to hear about your loss.
    The photo of your parents is so beautiful. Thinking of you and your family.

  4. I'm so sorry for your loss, Karen. From what you've written before, your Dad was a very special man, and I'm glad you can at least be happy he is with your mother in heaven, released from his suffering.

    He would want you to be very, very good to yourself just now. Take all the time you need and we'll be delighted to see your posts whenever you feel like blogging is something you want to do. xox

  11. I'm so sorry, Karen. I've read your posts on your father, and I wish I had known him. What lucky girls you and your sister are to have had a life with him.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Your blog buddies will be here waiting for you when you get back. <3

  13. Hi, Karen...I've been thinking about you and the pain of the early days of such a loss. Keeping you and your family in my prayers. It will get easier but it will take more time. Blessings to you...

  14. Dearest Dianne,

    Thank you so much for keeping me in your thoughts and prayers. I truly am grateful and it is nice to know that others understand. xx

  15. Talvez você não consiga entender o que estou postando, mas me encantou ver seu blog principalmente nessa postagem, pois perdi o meu pai também e como o seu, travou uma luta pra continuar aqui, entre nós, mas Deus sabe o que faz e nós temos que entender que talvez fosse o melhor caminho.
    Estou te seguindo, venha me seguir você também



Thank you for stopping by! Your comments are important to me and are very much appreciated. xx Karen
