Hello everyone.. Tracy here....The Beloved of the Gntlgnt. I don't know how to begin to thank you for all the wonderful thoughts, love and prayers that have been the sent our way from all of you. My heart has been very blessed by all of your kind words. I am doing fairly well at this point, but the hard times will come when we go to visit and he's no longer there with Grandma. He was a wonderful man and raised me half my life and I was lucky to have lived across the street from him and grandma for half of my life, which allowed me to see them everyday.
He and Grandma just had their 69th Anniversary on the 16th of January, gives me something to work towards. He suffered a stroke a little over 4 yrs ago and left him unable to do all the things he loved so dear like his woodworking and flower gardens. Watching his declining health the past couple of months was really hard and but I know now that he no longer is suffering pain and despair over his inablilty to live his life.
Contine to keep us close, the hard times are yet to come. We will need all the love and prayers we can get to pick our broken hearts up and move on, for life doesn't stop just because a loved ones life does.
Blessings to you all and thank you so much for being another "FAMILY" that we can count on and turn to in a time of need.
Many, many heartfelt thanks
(((((Tracy and Scott))))) Thanx for your post, Tracy. I'll never forget the day I listened to the phone message my big sister left for me, that Dad had had a stroke. My life as I'd been so used to it stopped as if slammed head on by a battering ram, and was never the same. He passed away in 2011. I'm grateful he will never suffer any pain again.
I know in time your pain will be easier to live with. Time is our friend because with every nanosecond we are a little bit more removed from the pain. At first the nanoseconds don't add up, then they do. Separation from the pain is inevitable because of time.
Thank you for checking in, Tracy. Anyone close to GNTLGNT's heart is close to our hearts! We will keep you and your family in our thoughts and prayers. Much love and groups hugs to you both, and if you ever get lonely stop on in, we'd love to see more of you!
