I posted a rather Late Valentines Template on My Mask Templates Blog
You will find it Here I had made this just days before the 22nd of Jan.
But a tragic event happened and I never got it uploaded.
On Jan 22 around Noon I got a call that My youngest Daughter's Husband Died. This was a very tragic event for our family. Mike was only 42 years old. And he leaves behind not only my daughter but my 11 year old grandson and 8 year old Granddaughter.
Her sisters and I supported her every step of way through making all the arrangements for His Memorial service and cremation. Which was Held the 29th of Jan to allow for his sisters to arrive from out of state. It was also hard because his service was the day after my Daughter's 39th Birthday which was the 28th.
Mike was a great son-in-law. He worked hard to help insure his family had the things they wanted. His service was a celebration of his life with all the family and close friends sharing their fondest memory of him. Then we opened it up for anyone else wanting to share a memory of him. Mike was a key player in getting this family together for cookouts. He loved hosting cookouts for family and friends. And if there was a warm day in Winter he would fire up his grill and put out and invite to everyone.
I stayed with my daughter night and day. Until she assured me she would be OK with me there. And though I was worried about leaving. I left knowing one of her sisters lived right down the road from her. And that her two sisters also work at the same place she does. So I know she is being looked after.
But I am still having moments where I just cry and cry knowing my grandchildren have to finish growing up with out their Dad. That he will not be there for key events in their life. But we will all see to it that they never forget how much their dad loved them and how hard he worked to give them the things they needed and wanted.
I know I usually Make you a St Patrick's Kit. But I am not sure I will be able to get that out this year. It all depends if I can get my head wrapped around doing it in the next couple of days to work hard to complete a kit. But right now my heart is not into doing a whole lot. But there is another week so we will just have to see if I can get one done. But I know you will understand if I do not.
