Checking In & Marv's Dad

Hi Everyone.

Just a quick note to say hi and that I'm so sorry for being out of touch. So much to say and not enough energy to even say it.

I think I mentioned a while back that the Doctor told Marv that his Dad would probably only live about 6 more months, and although he did live past that, he finally passed away a few hours ago. Poor Marv.....it's been a rough month as we have both been sick while trying to deal with everything that was starting to happen. But, he lived a long & successful life, and and now....his heart & breathing issues are over for him.

I don't know when the service will be yet, probably Monday......our Mandy will be here Friday. So, say a prayer for my Hubby, the next couple of weeks will be hard on him as he deals with this and also his Mom's health issues......I think I told you she is in a nursing home recovering from a stroke and broken hip.

Hope all is well with you....maybe life will get back to normal soon so I can return to my journal. I miss you so much and I feel blessed that you haven't given up on me.

Love & Pooh Hugs,
Linda

Linda I'm praying for Marv as he deals with so much and for Mandy's travels, and you because I know you're being so unselfish, but no doubt this is difficult for you as well.

When my father died, my brother tried to console me with the thought that "he's in a better place now." And while I knew that it was true, my tears were for me and my loss. My heart goes out to Marv, Mandy and you as you deal with this loss. Hugs and kisses to you all.

Linda, I'm late in getting this... I'm so very sorry to hear about Marv's father's passing, please give your Marv a hug from me and know that my thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Does Marv's mother know yet? How is she doing?

I've really missed hearing from you, but I know sometimes you just have to tend to things in life, and come back to journaling when you can, it's ok, we'll be here!!
