OT Need to let you know some sad news
All of you know our forum group is like "family" to Karen/Purplemoon. She asked me to let all of you know her unexpected and sad news. Her Dad passed away yesterday afternoon.
She really needs our prayers and support as she goes through this time of loss and grief.
As you know, he had to be taken to the hospital a few days ago. Karen said he deteriorated rapidly yesterday morning and then went into heart failure. Karen, her three children and two of his grown grandchildren were there with him when he quietly passed.
This is such a big loss for Karen, her Dad has lived with her for some time, and she has been his full time caregiver since last June when he became bedridden.
He was a very warm and loving man. You've all heard Karen talk about how he loved to tell his jokes and make others laugh.
Karen may not feel up to posting on the forum for awhile, but we can let her know she is in our thoughts and prayers and offer words of condolence here and in private emails to her.
Much love to you and your family Karen, I know your hearts are heavy and sad at the loss of your Dad. Let the knowledge that he has gone to his heavenly home comfort you. You know he has been warmly welcomed by your Mom, who went before him. Now he will be with the Lord and no longer suffer any discomfort or pain.
Love and prayers,
