CAS[E] this Sketch #216

We lost my wonderful father-in-law last weekend... such a sad time for everyone, but Tom and I are thankful for every moment we had with him, and the peaceful end to a blessed life.

N@ Ali has given me the perfect Sketch for expressing how grateful I am...

 
For CTS #216:
 
... for every second of each day we had to tell you how much you are loved.
 
 
May I just take an extra moment to thank all of you who were kind enough to say a prayer, send a thought, or a card ... you are truly the most wonderful friends we could ask for...
 
xx  Michele and Tom.

Oh Michele, I'm so far behind on my commenting and I'm so sorry to have missed this post until now. Please tell Tom I'm so sorry for his loss. Losing a loved one is never easy even if they have lived a long life. But we know that they are in a better place than we are. No more suffering, pain or anything else. You know how that goes. My prayers will be with you and Tom my sweet friend. Your card is just precious and perfect! I too am grateful for the time I had with my Dwayne. Hugs, Brenda
