Sunday Post #196 Saying Goodbye 

If you aren’t following Caffeinated’s Facebook page, you’ve probably wondered where I’ve been all week. It was a dark week here at Caffeinated. On Tuesday morning I received a phone call from my brother-in-law informing me that my Dad had passed. It was unexpected and ripped my heart out. At the moment I am with family and will return later this week. Hug your loved ones, make that call today, just to say, “Hi and I love you”  Stay Caffeinated!

    Kimberly, I am so so sorry about your father’s passing. I’m glad you’re with family and dimming the pain with some fond memories.

    Take care of yourself and don’t worry about the blog / us. We’ll all still be here when you’re ready.

    Kimberly, I saw this on Facebook, and I’m so very sorry.. I pray that you and your family will find comfort in your love for each other, and in the support of wider family and friends. Hold on to the wonderful memories; let yourself grieve when you need to and however you need to; and know that we are all thinking of you. Sending you lots of hugs, my friend.

    Sorry for your loss and enjoy being with your family. Take your time coming back to your blog as we will be here when you get back. I know how hard it is to lose a parent. *hugs*

    I am so sorry for your loss. It’s always hard to loss a family member. Jan 15th would have been my grandpa’s birthday and he would have been 96 had he made it to the new year. We where all so luck to have had him in our lives and even luckier for him to meet his great-grandkids. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Take care!

  5. Melissa (My words and pages)

    Oh my. My heart goes out to you. 2016 has not started as kindly as I had hoped, for many people. Take care and take all the time you need. **hugs**

    I am so sorry about your father passing! Make sure that you spend lots of time with your family, and make sure that you remember all of the fond memory’s you two share. Don’t worry about the blog! Everyone will be here when you return.

  7. Kristine

    I’m so sorry to hear about your loss. I know there’s nothing that can be said or done to make things better, but I do hope you and your family find comfort with one another. My thoughts will be with you and your family.

    Kimba, I am so sorry for what you and your family are going through right now. There is never really anything that can be said to make it better. I hope that you and yours can spend time together and begin to heal. We’ll all be here when you are able to come back.

    Sorry for your lose. Losing a loved one is never easy I lose my sister to lung cancer right before Christmas. Hang in there.

  10. Lorna

    I really was wondering about you. I knew something was wrong and I wish I had been wrong. I am so sorry about this huge loss of your father Kimberly.Take you time and come back when you are ready. My thoughts are with you and hope you are okay.

  11. Tressa

    I’m so sorry, Kimberly! My parents are getting older and it scares me, honestly. I don’t know if it’s easier if they go unexpectedly or when they battle illness and age for a long time. I think it’s just hard either way.

    I haven’t done my anticipated reads for this year either. I was thinking I need to do that this week, but we’ll see if I get to it.

    I hope you enjoy being with your family, even under the difficult circumstances, and get the as much time as you need.

  12. Stella Samuel

    I’m very sorry to read about losing your father. It’s a path I’ve walked as well. All I can think of when I miss my dad is though I wasn’t ready, he’d prepared me to live responsibly, respectfully, and filled with love. I hope you can find that same kind of peace in the love your father left for you one day soon.
