Dear Linda:

I, too, send my sincerest heart-felt condolences to you.

As I have lost both my parents I empathize with the feelings of a void in
one's family fabric.

I hope you find comfort and peace in remembrances of your parents and the
love and support of close family and friends.

Lovingly,
John

Hi Linda,

Very sorry for your loss.
It was nice to know that he was surrounded by all those he loved.

Paul



His death was actually somewhat comforting in that at the end the hospital
was
ble to keep him comfortable (he was in respiratory failure) and on his last
ight he was very very happy because all his family -- his parents, his
deceased
isters -- even the one who died at age 10 in 1935 -- were there. They say
you
ee your loved ones when you're dying, and apparently it's true.

Hello Linda,

I would like to join with the other list members and offer you my
condolences on the death of your father.
I lost my own father when I was comparitively young {36} and even now after
many years, I still miss him badly.

My best wishes go to you at this time

Sorry to hear of your loss. Take time to grieve, please, for your own
sake. No matter the relationship, grieving is required. I lost both
my parents in the past 3 years - both suffering and both ready, but
grieving is still important.

Thanks for letting us know. We'll pray for you.
Doug

her Scots side got Irisher and Irisher. That's what 300 years in Ireland
will do to you. The Andersons supposedly came with the McDonalds in the
1550s. They became red headed, musically gifted Covenanters who were
carpenters. Probably related to the Andersons who built Bushmills.

They say you see your loved ones when you're dying, and apparently it's
true.
