missing family

This portrait was drawn by my mother (who died in 1999) of my father.

My father passed away September 1, 2010 at the grand age of 90.

I can thank both of my parents for passing along the creative gene and artistic desire to create.
How heart-warming to know they are finally back together and in God's hands.

Extending my heartfelt sympathy on the loss of your father Catherine. To know he is enjoying his eternal reward must bring great comfort. Your mother's portrait is outstanding. No doubt your parents are very proud of the creative soul their daughter has become. ((hugs))

I am so very sorry for your loss. What a wonderful image to hold on to of your parents together now. Though we are strangers, I too have a father I cherish and that's enough for me to say I will pray for you tonight and for you to believe me. May God watch over you and those you love as you navigate your way through this next season of your life.

I relate to you too as my Dad died so unexpectedly in 2004 so my sincere sympathy to you too. I just got back from Brevard which may be close to you? My mother's house just sold and it was sad even though it was a relief. We have lots of memories of my Dad which will sustain us as it will you too. I just love the mountains there!

How fortunate you are to have had your father in your life for so many years and to have him living so close to you in this area. You must have made him very proud of his little girl as a mother, wife and talented artist, to name a few. Sending peaceful thoughts your way while in this transition.
