Out of the Dark and into the light........... baby steps!

I wanted to share this special card that I was making when I found out that my father had passed away, in amongst all the things that were going on I knew I just HAD to finish it, this one is for him.

He passed away suddenly aged 68, even though we knew it would happen one day, you can never prepare.

The past couple of weeks have been especially difficult, hence the lack of posting, there was nothing in the tank left for creating, unfortunately life must go on and it will get easier each day, baby steps!

With 2 of his 6 Grandchildren- Our 2 little monkeys

The gift he left us all- FAMILY, complicated as it may be some times

Me and my little Brother, Yo

Thanks for sharing this baby step with me!

Sue, my thoughts are with you and your family at this difficult time. Your post really hits home with me - I lost my dad suddenly at 53 who I was very close to and it does take baby steps and having the support of your family and friends is so important right now.
A big hug from me and take care,

Oh Sue I am so sorry to learn of the loss of your father. I too know how suddenly they can be taken from us. I was there the night my dad passed away right in front of us from an apparent heart attack. Nothing prepares you for that and the loss is hard to deal with. My heart goes out to you and I pray that you will be comforted by the memories you have and commend you for taking this first "baby step" as you go through the grieving process. Big Hugs from me to you.
