My Dad.....

I will be away from my blog for some time. My Dad passed away yesterday morning and my Mom is not doing well. Thanks to everyone that sent prayers and thoughts for our family as my Dad made his journey to heaven with us by his side. I have a few posts scheduled ahead that you will see, for teams I am part of. I have a lot on my plate right now to take care of and will be back when I can.


My Dad suffered from severe COPD and a bad heart. I urge you this: if you are a smoker, know a smoker and also know someone who is a mechanic like my Dad was....work hard at trying to quit smoking, helping someone to quit smoking and take active measures to protect oneself working with diesel or other such chemicals that mechanics are exposed to. It could prolong their life.

  20. Debbie, I'm a regular blog & SC follower of yours - you inspire me! I wanted to send my thoughts & prayers to you, your mom & family for the loss of your dad. My heart breaks for you; my mom was a smoker & it took her life as well back in 1989 at the young age of 58. Back then it didn't have the 'fancy name' of COPD...it was Emphysema. Take good care & God Bless

Oh Debbie, what a sad time for you and your family, My prayers are with you all, your Dad is surely in Heaven and has got his wings now, you will never forget him, and it is a wonderful to have great memories of him, when my husband died, all the grandkids said "don't worry Nana because Poppy is in heaven and is an angel now," it was a lovely thought from the boys, and I am sure you will feel the same, my condolences!!!!!
