I have been gone a few days up toward Kansas City Missouri. My Dad has passed away . My sisters and I set at the nursing home with him. We talked to him even though we knew he couldn't talk back.
We laughed told funny family stories reminiscence about good days and bad days LOL
We played Glen Miller Cd's and some old Elvis and other rock & roll music because him & Mom loved to dance. They use to always go out every New Year's to dances. I sometimes called them and said stay home it's freezing rain and you'll have a wreck. LOL they didn't listen to me ( wonder why)? I have pictures of Mom in her long evening gowns and Dad all dressed up in suit & tie. Mom always had her hair & nails done new dress new shoes and always wore her fur coat that was especially made for her with her initials in it. I have it in one of my closets.
This is their wedding picture ( not very good I need to adjust my camera )
June 1st 1957 Mt Vernon Illinois Wesley Methodist church
13 years ago at a family wedding . Mom died 12 years ago
His funeral is Friday so I'll take a few days away from the blog

I'm so sorry Janice, please accept my deepest sympathy. What a love story, loved the part about you being the parent and telling them to stay home. When a woman is treated like a Queen and a man like the King, Heaven on Earth can be achieved. Your parents had the secret, we can all learn from them.ReplyDelete
So sorry about your Dad. You were very lucky to be with him and spend that special time. My Dad passed in 93 and I was lucky enough to be there also, I still miss him but it does get easier and happily, your Dad and Mom are back together!
My sincere condolences.ReplyDelete
So sorry, so sad. One is new really ready to loose anyone and a parent is always hard. My father was only alive in body, not mind, but my mother was just the reverse. It is always hard. just know we are all thinking of you and hopping this will be something you will get through with out to much pain. Richard from My Old Historic House.ReplyDelete

Oh Janice I'm so so sorry you lost your beloved father. He's gone to be with your mom and you'll see them again. I know that doesn't help much right now, hopefully though it offers some comfort? (((HUGS))) VannaReplyDelete
Janice, I am so sorry that you have lost your father. I know how hard that is. My Mom and Dad are gone and I still miss them so.ReplyDelete
I noticed that they were married June, 1957. My Sweet Old Bob and I were married June, 1958. We are kinda glued to one another. It sounds like your parents had some wonderful times and it is so nice that you can recall their love for each other and the special times. Those sweet memories help.
The circle will be unbroken.
My prayers are with you and your family.
I am so sorry about your Dad...you are in my thoughts and prayers.ReplyDelete
