I didn't even know you had a blog and I was fishing around on flickr and found this. I am so sorry about your lost...then I saw the letter you had written about him when you were 7 or 8. Gosh my heart goes out to you and your family. Hopefully your heart is healing.

Absolutely beautiful.
Thank you for such a sweet post. What a loving memory to have.
A few years ago my Grandmother passed away. She moved in with my family when my Grandfather passed away when I was 8 yrs old so was a part of our world on a daily basis, for even my children since we live in the same town. All of us were together when Grandma passed away - my Mom, being an only child - was overwhelmed with loss...I turned to my Mom and thought, "How beautiful, my Grandmother saw her daughter's first breath and my Mom saw her Mother's last". I held my Grandmother's beautiful hands that evening then I went to hold my Mother's...in my heart that will remain.

I hold the image of you & your Father in my heart - may your heart be warm with your memories.


Oh Leslie... I'm so sorry, that I missed this post! I'm catching up with all my favs and I feel horrible for you loss.

You've written a lovely note about your dad here and the warmth and love is just pouring out. I'm so sorry for you loss!

May he rest in peace...


I can't believe I just NOW found your blog. Well, of course, this is one of the first posts of yours I've read (so sorry to hear about your father-- the holiday must have been hard).

Anywho, I don't even know you, and I'm bawling like a crazy person over here in Michigan after reading this post.

xo and thank you for sharing.
