((((hugs)))))) thinkin of ya
I emailed my cousin David, and this was his response (he said it better than I could have): Many, like me,were spared seeing Keith in decline, and my sole recollection of himis of a man with the most generous of spirits, a keen intelligence,engaged with others, and a sparkling wit. He was energetic andcommitted from the start (or at least ever since I can recall him overfifty years ago), and always good company. Like all good men, he'sirreplaceable. I always loved spending time with him, and regret nothaving seen him more over the years. So I send you all my loveand solidarity on this occasion, especially after these last fewyears, in which you -- and above all your mother -- had to see thedecline of a fine spirit. It must have been very hardindeed. We will all, of course, miss Keith, but it is your motherand you children who of course have to come to terms with the pain ofhaving him finally taken away.
What a gentle picture. Hope that this trip brings an opportunity for lots of remembering your dad "before"...
You're in our thoughts.
I'm sorry. And hugs, dear.
We both send you big hugs and wish you gentle knitting to help you through this. It will never go away, it just gets easier to live with. Celebrate his life. You are so joyful, some of that had to come from him.
I'm so sorry for your loss.
I'm so sorry Charlene. I loved what your cousin said - he sounds like he was a wonderful man.
I'm so sorry. The loss of the physical body, even after the years of the loss of the intellect, still hits hard. Sending hugs your way.
