for Gail

Who would have known that I would make precious friends from watching a reality show... but I have.

Sadly, one of my precious and darling friends has lost her grandfather. He passed yesterday and my friend grieves. I grieve with her.

He knows how much you love him, Twinny... and I love you.

For Gail's GranPa  - May he Rest in Peace




I know how much you love this song... you have a new Angel now.

Sorry to hear about this. Does she still have a blog? I can't seem to identify links to other people's blogs anymore. I'll figure it out. Hope you and Chicklet are well. *hugs*

Sorry to hear this.

How sad. :(

Coco, she hasn't blogged in a long time. I sent you her e-mail addy though. We're doing ok, thanks sweetie.

Charles, there's a very special bond we have with grandparents...

Akelamalu, I think the physical distance between them at the time of his passing has been difficult for her. He was in the Philippines and she's in the U.S.

Losing a "Papa" is life altering. There is no doubt he is with her in the grief and will always be right by her side. I know whereof I speak (smile)

Hugs to her.

Hope said...

A, I'm sorry to hear about her loss. Tell her she's in my thoughts. Glad she has you to talk to, mama.

Thanks to all for your well wishes...

Virginia, she was there for me when my mom passed. It's what friends do. She's awesome.

Mimi, a Papa really is always with us. **hugs**

Hope, there are a few very special women in my life and she's one of them. You'd love her, she's a hoot.

Ron, she makes it easy to be her friend :)

Travis, it's what our little group does.

Gail, you gave me comfort when I needed it, glad I could be here (even though I'd rather be close and giving you a big hug).

Love you, Twinny.
