My Dad...


A wonderful man passed away last Monday...my dad, Richard. He was an artist too and was my biggest fan. I miss him terribly and I know you'll all understand why I need a few more days to get back into things. Thank you to my friends who have offered their thoughts and prayers. Love, Barb

I just wanted to say how very sorry I am. We do not know each other, but I visit your blog very often, and just had to offer my sincere condolences.

Take care of you and take time for thinking and remembering. There is no right or wrong way to feel at a time like this. Take each moment as it comes.

Sending wishes of peace to you and all your familiy.

I am so terribly sorry! Not everyone has a beautiful relationship like that; it's so sad when it has to end. :(
I hope and pray your hurts heal and all your tears are wiped away!

Barb I am so sorry for your loss.
He has such a loving and cheerful face ; he reminds me of my "Big Daddy" (as we use to call him) that we lost last year.
Hugs to you...Ginger (from PCC)
