For this blog entry, I want to talk about a subject that has nothing to do with scrapbooking or card making. I’ve been gone first for lovely vacations with family, then because of the worst, and I’m still feeling pretty sad these days…
I write about things, objects, people, experiences that inspire me. Well my Father-in-law or Dad as I called him inspired me. Unfortunately we lost him at the very young age of 67 due to a horrible car accident, and will be missed. This was crushing news to all of us especially my children. He was an amazing person with so much enthusiasm and energy, a great outdoorsman and a fabulous hunter. I even have one of his trophies in my den.
I’m so glad my kids especially the boys got to experience their granddad this past summer. They went on hunting trips and fishing trips all summer long with him and can’t stop telling the wonderful stories about their grandpa and it brings tears to my eyes. My daughter made a “goodbye” card for him and enclosed was this beautiful passage:
I have many fond memories of you Grandpa. I look forward to seeing you again "soon" (at least in the eternal timeframe!) and giving you a big hug!
We were SO lucky to have him in our lives and for me it was an honor to know such an incredible individual. He was always warm to me and I have many fond memories of him as well, Dad you will be dearly missed but your memories will forever live in our hearts.
