I've Lost my Biggest Fan

Some of you may have noticed I've been absent from the blogging world the last few weeks.  At first, the reason for my absence was I became sick, then once I was feeling better, my family went on vacation. However, a day after we returned from our trip, my father was found dead in his home from an apparent heart attack.

My father was my biggest fan.  He read every single post I ever wrote, commented on a lot, and bragged about me and my sewing to all his friends and family.  He loved seeing pictures of his grandchildren and after I searched the photos on his computer, found pictures he had downloaded from my most recent blog posts.

My dad was supportive of my hobby and my dream to someday develop my love of sewing into a career through design.  Like any parent, he wanted me to be happy.

It's been a rough couple of weeks since he passed, and I know the months ahead will be difficult as I deal with the grief of his loss and the responsibility of taking care of and sorting through his belongings.  I am not new to this at all.  This will be the third time in the last 14 years that I have had to clean out a close relative's home.

So, just to let you know, I will be blogging in the coming weeks, but until I get a handle on things, I am sure it will be sporadic.  Right now I want to sew but am finding it difficult to actually muster up the energy to do it.

I miss my daddy.  May he rest in peace.

  20. My deepest sympathies to you and your family. I cannot even imagine what a loss it must be to all of you especially so suddenly. I'm sure you will be sewing soon, if for some kind of therapy to get you through this difficult time.

  24. I'm so sorry. It's so difficult and sad. I had a family loss this year, sometimes I go through whole minutes or hours, days at this point, when I'm/things are ok and then all of a sudden it's not. Tears come from nowhere or you remember a wonderful moment and laugh. I send you wishes of love, peace, strength and hope.
