For my regular followers it is with a sad heart I tell you I will not be posting for a bit. What was to be a fun filled evening to celebrate my mother's 70 th birthday turned into a much more somber evening. I arrived home from work to find my husband dead. Autopsy results will be in Monday but all indications point to a aorta aneurysm.

Please leave some love on Kathy's blog for the lose of her dad.

Hi Nettie,

I never know the perfect words to say at times like this, when bad things happen to good people, but I wanted you to know people are thinking of you and keeping you in their prayers.

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. My husband is in the military and try to live every day we have together to the fullest (which usually means less stamping) because... you just never know...

I know you do not know me, but I am happy to listen if you ever wish to vent. You can find me on SCS. Thank you for the creativity and inspiration you have shared with all of us.

Best Wishes,
Meredith

Kat said...

I wanted to add my condolences. I know how hard this must be. We lost my father very unexpectedly about a year ago. He had just turned 60. I think about him all the time. And I think if I was blogging then, the support and shoulders I would have gotten would have been an amazing help to get through some really tough times.
