Cheers to a great life

Thank you to all that have sent me messages, I do love reading them but I unfortunately haven’t been able to reply back to you personally.

For those that have been reading, it has been a long and horrible 3 weeks for our family.
We discovered that my dad was ill and unfortunately we had to say goodbye to him yesterday morning with great sorrow.

I really do appreciate your sweet words and it does help in the grieving process to be able to talk about it.

Thank you to sweet friends with messages and gifts along the way.

Thank you again for reading and visiting.
