It is with great sadness that I have to tell you that our dear Tink's Da passed away this afternoon.

As you can imagine she is totally devastated and Tink and Herself are driving up to NY tonight.

I will let you know more when I hear from her again.

Just to let you know that they are where they need to be and I have told her about the messgages of support and comfort and she asked me to say thank you for all your kind wishes.

This is a very sad and emotional time for her and, when she is ready, I'm sure she will come and thank you herself, but for now, I will let you know what I can, when I can :hug2:

25-10-2012, 01:17 AM
Thank you all so much. It's hard being home. I know that must sound odd, but it's just so weird, the knowing they are both gone.

He was so very completely lonely without Mama. His life was empty, and he had no joy what so ever. I know that sounds dramatic, but it's true. I'd speak with him and you could hear it in his voice. Utter sadness. So. I know he's not sad any longer, but that doesn't change the fact that I'm scared witless to know that Da is gone and there is no one there to turn to, in the way one turns to one's Father.

Who will scare away the monsters now?

Beccaberry
25-10-2012, 03:52 AM
No one. I'm afraid that's the sad truth. No one can scare away the monsters or make you believe you are brave and strong quite like a da. But we are here for you. And we will sit with you in the dark and hold your hand. And we will remind you that you are loved now and always.

Johnie
25-10-2012, 03:55 AM
You've been given the strength to scare away the monsters on your own. That's what a Da does, he teaches you how to do it on your own.

Tink..so very touching. I guess those who have gone through this part of life can so empathize with your feelings. The memories will be with you always; both of the regular day in day out memories of you life with him, and he feelings of loss that will be under the surface. You will never know when something will remind you of one or the other or both and you will be brought back to your total missing of him. Guess that is liife. So, for now and for future feelings of loss ... all I can offer is:hug2:.


:dine: To your Da....

Well, sometimes things just don't go well at all.

My Aunt, who is also my g-dmother has died. I just saw her at Da's funeral. :sigh:

I'll be flying into and out of NY Monday through Wednesday.

Hoping the Hurricane doesn't interfere.

Wish me luck.

Same here... at my Mothers funeral I didn't dream that 6 months later two of those people attending would be dead :( I lost 12 people in one year in my family... it was so bad that we had two funerals in ONE day :( It is a nightmare to be sure X

Tink try and take comfort from the fact that you got to see her X Take care X

Thank you all. :grouphug:

I've checked this morning and so far Jet Blue is still flying into Syracuse, so I'm hoping it's a go. I'm going to the airport earlier than my scheduled flight to see if I can get on an earlier flight. I have to go to work first though, as there are some things that I must do before I leave.

I'm actually more concerned about being stuck in NY than I am about getting there. Not that NY is a bad place to be stuck, but I sure do need my job! :sigh:

Shelly, you'll be surprised if I knock on your door and ask for a cuppa' coffee wouldn't you? ;)

My G-dmother was a true blue Yankees fan. I'm going to order blue and white flowers. I think that will be nice, don't you? :unsure:

Beccaberry
29-10-2012, 09:59 AM
I think that's perfect, Tink. And yes, I'd share your concerns about being stranded in NY. We have friends that flew Delta, who cancelled all flights, and are currently "stranded" in Disney. Just remember, you're never stranded where you have friends :)

Here. The flight wasn't too bad. The landing? Something out of the Twilight Zone. Not a pleasant experience, but we did get down. The pilot received a round of applause at landing, if that tells you anything.

Was quite windy here, but uncharacteristically warm (last night). Heard the rain about midnight, but it's quiet this morning. I've not gone out to see how the weather is.

I'm hoping I'll be able to get out tomorrow (very early flight).

Thank you for all your good wishes, care and concern. :grouphug: It's been a long couple of weeks, hasn't it?
