After suffering from Alzheimer's for several years, my father passed away last night. Please keep me and my family in your thoughts and prayers. I'm having a difficult time this morning...

You don't know me from a hole in the wall, but I am so very sorry. Losing someone you love is painful and surreal. I send you and your family prayers and strength to get through the days ahead.

Thank you, Hedda and Randy. Your kind words are much appreciated.

For those out there waiting on auction books and copies of Beneath the Bed to be shipped, I'll get back to it next week. This week has been a total bust as far as getting anything done is concerned. Things have been incredibly stressful the past few days. To make a long story short, my step-mother converted to Mormonish when my father was first diagonosed with Alzheimers and the normal events of visitation/funeral/burial aren't going the usual route that most Southern mournings take place. She's even threatening to cremate him and have no service at all, which would deny me closure (she and I don't get along to the barn and back). It's frustrating and depressing at the same time. Sorry for burdening y'all with my problems. :(

Ron, I am one of the ones waiting for Beneath the Bed and do not worry about that. Take care of your family and yourself first. Our packages can wait.

I lost my father unexpectedly last September. In some ways, my family is still working through the grief. I pray that God finds you all where you are and provides you comfort and clarity during this very difficult time.

*sigh*, I just wanted to say to you that no matter what hateful thing your step-whatever (I don't want to call her a mother as that is a term of endearment) chooses to do without your input and opinion (which is totally disrespectful to you and your father), do not stoop to her level of ignorance or obnoxious selfishness.

I'm sorry if I overstep a boundary by saying this, but losing someone is a vulnerable and fragile time for kids and they need love and understanding and respect and they need to be listened to. I don't care if that kid is a grown man with a family of his own. For your peace, take the high road and know that your dad is always with you no matter what.
