The sky grew black, and the crack of thunder rocked the house and then it started to hail, five minutes later the sun came out and just like that my Dad was gone. The last few weeks have all been a blur but they have been filled with a lot of love and laughter. I have been reminded how wonderful people are and also how fragile and fleeting life really is. Here are some pictures from the last few days. Cristi has been by my side through it all, never underestimate the power of friendship.

I've always believed in the power of love, prayer, and good vibes~ call it whatever you want I have been feeling it surround me. Your comments are more than words they are compassionate hugs from familiar places. Thank you for caring so very much, I really can feel it and I really do appreciate it.

This post seems more like a journal entry, so feel free to just look at the pictures if you don't want inside my head today. I spent the weekend looking after my Dad. I invited Cristi to come for a night and she happily said she'd love to! Having her there made it so much easier, it was our own kind of slumber party. I'm so lucky to have her in my life.
He collects these painted animals from Mexico.
I'm here but I'm barely holding it together. My physical body is tired from lack of sleep and food and my eyes have never been so puffy and red from the sporadic crying that comes on without notice.
Some snaps from my Dad's place.
Cristi and I got this for his bedside along with some wonderfully scented star gazer lilies.
My Dad stopped eating about 2 weeks ago, now it's just morphine and chocolate milk.
They don't call them man's best friend for nothing.
Peetee and Dylan love laying with Dad.
They know it's almost time to say goodbye.
