Mom and Dad...

My Mom and Dad when they were young. I just cleaned it up a wee and added color. The image below is my Dad... who is on his last days. We have to keep him on morphine all the time now and he does not eat. The photo of him in bed was taken in February and if you could see him now... just skin a bones. So, I lose my beloved Father and my beloved George at the same time. George is going to be cremated and buried with my father. Yes... I am quite the mess.

Oh Robin, I'm so sorry you are going through this but you have done such a wonderful job of restoring and coloring the image of your parents when they were obviously happy with life. Remember, you dad will always be with you, in not in the flesh, most definitely in the spirit. We truly never leave our loved ones, and they never leave us. My prayers are with you.

:{ I am so sad for you and your family. I can see the love your parents had for each other in the top photo. I love that smile of your mom. I wish you well and know that you are in my thoughts. Penny

Artist Reply: Thank you very much! Can you imagine those pointy eyebrows when they were angry??? hehe pretty scary, I tell ya. I am very much a reflection of both my parents. My mom's passion and intensity and my dad's sly sense of humor.

My deepest sympathies to you and I am sorry to hear that you are losing them. I had the same thing happen recently with my cousin and it was tramatic. Certainly makes you think about what you want out of life. I hope all the best for you dear and please remember the best of times. You always have friends here :) I know it isn't much, but I hope we can help somehow. Lovely tribute to a great man in your life !!~******~!!

oh, Robin - so very sorry for this heartbreak - your mom and pop look like a beautiful couple - there are no words to give you that will help, just know that things happen for a reason and we are not always privy to those reasons. Your Dad will be in a better place that is painfree. Be strong and take good care. Joe

Artist Reply: Thank you Joe... I am Daddy's little girl... so it's really tough. But I do not want him to suffer anymore.
