Thank you all very much for your kind wishes and condolences.  I’m back home now from a rather gruelling trip back to Portland.  I am still trying to process all that happened there, and recover from jet lag.  I accomplished a lot and gave my Dad a good send-off.

A misty morning in Portland, Oregon.

  9. Thinking of you, Christine.

  10. You could have done no more, if you are like me , it will take you a few days to ” come to ” so try and relax as best you can. Think about all the ” happy times/ memories you had of your dad. Count your blessings and relish your lovely family and enjoy coming home. Above all whatever your past difficulties , remember that your dad would want you all to be happy and
    well x

  11. Christine, I haven’t been paying as much attention to the blogosphere, of late. Please accept heartfelt condolences from me and mine to you and yours. So sorry to hear of your loss.

  12. Glad to have you back safely on our shores. Continuing to uphold you in prayer in the days to come. Love and best wishes xo

  13. Hello, Christine. I’m so sorry to hear about your dad, and I hope you made the most of the visit home. It must be very hard. It’s good that you say you had a good relationship with him, so much less straightforward with all the miles in between you. x

  14. Welcome home, Christine. REST.

  15. Take care. x

  16. So sorry to hear of your loss Christine, but I’m glad you feel things were resolved and that you gave your Dad a good send off. Love and peace to you.

  17. Welcome home. I bet they’re all happy to see you.

  18. My heartfelt thanks to you all. I have tried hard to rest when I can, and as Susan suggested, to count my blessings. Coming to terms with such things is a process that can’t be rushed…
