Big Time Bummer!

Just to let those of you who don't know---I lost my Dad this past week from complications around having knee surgery.  He died on Palm Sunday in the hospital and will be missed dearly----I was very close to him and I am at Peace with his passing---it is just gonna be hard to get used to him being gone as I talked to him regularly.  My life will be forever altered by this.  I wanted to take this opportunity to say a big THANK YOU to all of you who wrote me with well wishes----it is a great comfort to feel that loved and I am grateful to have such wonderful people in my circle of life----charmed beyond belief I say----
This is a photo of my immediate familly with Grandma smack dab in between---I am so proud of each and every one of my children---they handled the passing of their Grandfather with Grace and great respect.

OMG Renee! I am SOOOOOOO sorry to hear of your father's passing. My heart is broken for you dear friend. I have that pain in my lower stomach right now when I hear something that is so sad from someone dear to me. We now have one of the hardest things that a person can go through in common. I am sending you the biggest hug ever!!!((())) Please call me sometime when you can talk. I love you sweetie take care.

Oh you guys!! I just can't tell ya what it means to me to have you in my life---your kind words help me to heal and have touched me greatly---I will miss my Dad and have come to peace with his passing. I am having some adjustment issues with him not being around to laugh with, but I know he is always with me in spirit and will probably 'mess' with me from time and again--LOL Even though you are not closeby in body---you are both closeby in my thoughts always and I know you guys always will be---I am blessed by that---LOVE YOU both dearly and just know that I truly appreciate you's girlie whirls! Always, Renee :-)

One of the best things about the college life was probably that the Franklin Marshall Clothes you wore were the most comfortable items you've ever owned.Even better, you were still stylish even if you didn't know Tod's Men's Shoes
Tod's Women's Shoes! There is a certain magic about Tiger Shoes that always looks classic and in style, even if you just pulled it on to make it to your early morning class.
