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.
