Thank you all for your support and kind words, they are appreciated greatly.

Just to let you know that Dad passed away last night, so I will have to keep this brief, as I cannot type and cry at the same time. He was so peaceful and left such an air of calm in the house, it was tangible. Bless him all over. Lots to sort out as mum is in a whirl at the moment.

Everyone take lots of care, xxxx Bubbles



have put this on here so you can all see thought it should get one of its own so we can all give her the strength to cope with this loss.

you have always been there for each and every one of us thank you friend i know it going to be hard even though you knew it would happen does not make it any easier but i am here if you need me

    Hi Bubbles

    I'm so very sorry to hear about your dad.

    He was very sick and sufferd with a lot of pain for over 4 months. He is at rest now with no pain.

    Bubbles if we can help in anyway just ask, you know we will.

    Wish we could send some real flowers. Sending hugs in abundance.

    Love Trish xxx

    The happiest people don't have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything.

    If you can lay down at night knowing in your heart that you made someone's day just a little bit better, you know you had a good day.

    I am overwhelmed and I cannot thank you enough for your kind words, support and encouragement. I am not sure what else to say, everyone is so kind and thoughtful, I am, for once, lost for words.
    I am putting on a cast iron front at the moment, to get through. I know that, come the funeral, it will crack, but, that is no shame. I have spoken to family and friends, many are travelling hours, to come to the service, Dad was so well thought of.
    I will pop in and out. Along with the strong front, I am totally whacked and hurt all over, so if I go awol, it is not intentional.

    Bless you all, truly. Take care, XXX Bubbles.

    My Dear Bubbles

    thank you for posting so glad to hear from you in person.

    You will do it you will survive and the funeral will be the hardest thing ever....BUT all those people coming! they will bring memories and stories of fun and laughter about your Dad which will hearten you. Things you didn't know about your Dad and the impact he had on lives other than the family.

    Then you will believe that his life was so worth it....

    Love and hugs

    Good Morning Bubbles

    You are doing so well and yes the funeral is so difficult but you will get through it. So many people will have such wonderful memories of your Dad as it sounds as though he was a wonderful man. I lost my Dad recently and at his funeral tea we had a Memories Book sitting by the door, everyone who attended the funeral wrote one of their fondest memories of my Dad and when everyone went home me, my Mum and close family read it and it was very comforting to read what everyone had written, some of the stories were also very funny and to be honest we had a bit of a laugh as well. My Mum often takes out the Memories Book when she is feeling low. I am sending you strength and comforting hugs for the days ahead. Keep well and take care of your Mum xx
    Big Hugs

    Once again, I thank you for your support and kindest words. I thought I would pop in and say hello - this limbo time is sending me slightly off my perch, my head will not shut up talking to me, if that makes any sense. Probably my way of getting through things.

    Am pottering as best I can, all I want to do is go to bed, but, that will not get the baby a new bonnet.

    Everyone take lots of care and I will pop in again. XXX Bubbles

    Hi Bubbles,
    I am so sorry for the loss of your Dad, I know he had been poorly, and that you were a wonderful support to him.
    I was at my Grandad's funeral last Tuesday, I know exactly what you mean about limbo, I don't think I slept for 48 hours straight..
    Sending you love and hugs at this difficult time. (((((()))))) X
