Sad news

Last week on the 22th my father in law passed away at home. It had been such a long and difficult journey he had with many bouts of cancer that he fought each time, but this last battle was bigger than what he could fight. The months that had passed we knew we were on borrowed time and spent so much time at my inlaws, created new memories and kept reminiscing about old ones. The months that have passed were also difficult because as time wore on my father in law suffered greatly especially in the last three weeks. While it was hard to say goodbye I also know that now he is no longer in pain and suffering, but at peace now. I learned a lot this year and will continue to learn and hope that the lessons I learned I carry with me always. I realized greatly to love with all your heart and to not take for granted the moments in life, but to appreciate all that you have.  The calling hours and funeral last week was a testament to the man my father in law was. There were so many that came to pay their final respects to a great man that led a great life. May he rest in peace.


  1. My dear friend your whole family are in my prayers..

    Love you x

  2. I'm so very sorry to read about your dear father-in-law, Kay. Even though you knew the end was near, it must have been so hard to watch him in pain. I hope the memories of the good times you shared will help you get through this sadness...

  4. Aww Kay, I’m so sorry to hear your news about your father-in-law.
    I know from personal experience just how difficult it is watching and caring for someone with cancer in their final weeks, my heart goes out to you.
    It sounds as though you made the most of the time you had left together thought, as sad as it was. The memorise you made will always be cherished and hopefully will bring you comfort in the future.
    Send love and (((hugs)))) to you and your family at this sad time.

  6. I'm very late to this news Kay. I've not been good at keeping up with blogs & followers over the last year or so myself. Things have changed & I hope to be more attentive.
    Thank you for your kind words.
    I send to you & yours, even now, enfolding hugs.
