Thank You

Thank you to everyone who commented with kind words of condolence and birthday wishes for Lindsey. It means a lot to me!

We were given a real gift the Sunday before my dad died, Memorial Day weekend. My sister had us all over for a cookout, including my dad. We were able to take him out of the nursing home for the day. He was feeling as good as we had seen in a long time. He really enjoyed himself, had seconds and thirds of supper (including watermelon which he loved so much but couldn't have much of in his last months), loved spending time outside with his children and grandchildren. We are so thankful that we had that day with him.

Here are a few pictures of my girls from that day:

Allison fell asleep on the way home (a 5 minute drive!). We carried her inside and laid her on the couch, she was exhausted!

Thanks again dear friends!

My prayers to your family. It's never easy to lose a loved one, expected or not.

Your girls are adorable. Loved the hair story.

I've been thinking about you so much. I got your reply the other day on my email and I just wanted to reach through the screen and give you a hug. The memories you're sharing here and this special time with your Dad will be cherished forever.
