Life and Death

My father-in-law has lost his battle and passed away on June 3rd...exactly 3 months to the date since he entered the hospital. He was admitted on 3/3 for a heartattack. A triple bypass surgery was done on the 9th. He never left the ICU. He battled and fought and hung on as long as he possibly could. It was simply terrible.

This has been a whirlwind of a week and needless-to-say I have not done anything with Etsy - today has been my first day back. I look forward to featuring a new Etsy artist tomorrow!

I am so sorry for your loss.... A couple of weeks ago we lost my mother-in-law. She had been in hospital for nearly 3 months to the day. Had been in ICU, every ward on the hospital but finally departed this world peacefully with her family around her at the great age of 90.

What made it more poignant was that we buried her second eldest daughter in USA just under 3 months ago so it was a double whammy.

All you can do is dust yourself down, look forward, chin up and live life again. Time helps to soften the blows - you never forget but memories become kinder. Take care xx
