My dad in law has passed on last night. I am rushing home now, logging this in from the Singapore Airport. I will be here only intermittently from now on, till the 2nd week of March. I will miss you all.

I thank you all for dropping by, and for leaving words of solace.
Going through the experience of having a death in the family is never easy, but it is this shared feeling of community that nearly always gets us through it.
I thank each one of you once again, and hope you are keeping well.
P.S.: For those of you who have blogs, I will visit soon. Lensman, I am dropping you an email.
I’m sorry about your loss. God bless him. Take care and hope to see more posts from you later on.
I’m so sorry. Mine passed in November and I wasn’t prepared for the grief.
Damyanti, when I read your brief entry, I felt saddened, not so much for your father-in-law, because he’s been granted relief and I believe he must now be bursting to tell of his new happiness, but mostly for his loved ones who are today feeling drained and sorrowful. He’s left an empty chair at the family hearth, but it’s my belief that he hasn’t gone forever, he’s simply gone ahead. In the meantime, I wish all of you comfort and a swift return to the familiarity of life.
No words can suffice at this time. Just know that our thoughts are with you.
p.s. Thanks for visiting my blog. Catch you when you get back.
I’m sorry for your loss.
Oh, I’m so sorry. Your recent travel was related to his health, wasn’t it? I’ll keep you in my thoughts and keep checking back. Safe travels.
So sorry to hear this, travel safely. A hard trip to make.
I look forward to your return in March
I’m so sorry for your loss. I’ll remember you in my prayers.
