A Fine Man

I wish I was a poet. I wish I could express how I feel. My brother Denton, who many of you in the DP community know, my sisters, my brothers, and I have lost our dad. He was 86.

  1. cette photo est un bel hommage. je suis de tout coeur avec toi.

    this photograph is a beautiful homage. I am of any heart with you.

  2. Norma, I just saw Denton’s post and realized that there must be a special significance to his. Now I know. My sincerest condolences to you, Denton,and the rest of your family. My heart hurts for you, and I know that despite the sorrow you’ll focus on the positive memories.

  3. It’s been a melancholy week. M. Benaut from Australia lost someone dear, and now you and your family have experienced great loss. Your friends in Minneapolis extend our heartfelt thoughts and prayers.
    In his sermon last week our minister said something that I may never forget: Death is a comma, not a period.
    May you find peace in those words.

  4. I am so sorry for your loss Norma.
    I saw the picture of your Mom and Dad,
    He looks like a wise old fella,with a loving wife.
    No wonder you are so special,with parents like that.
    Your setting sun photo is beautiful and sad at the same time,like life.

  5. My sincere condolences to you and your family. But as long as you guard the memories of your dad, he’s not really gone…

    And you are a poet Norma – you expressed it in this photo.

  6. i liked your father from the time he said I know tham well he didnt go home and when we had are little swim fishing trips he was a great father to many people because that is who always thought of them first
    i was glad to have known him

    my condolences JOE

  7. Oh Norma, I’m really sorry to hear that.
    I wish you and your family all the best from so far away.
    A big hug from Madrid, from your friend. Take care.

  8. Norma,

    I leave you the same message I left your brother as it seems just as appropriate. My deepest sympathies are with you and yours during this difficult time. May you have wonderful memories to get you through the tough times and stories to tell so that you do not forget.

  9. Norma, I also lost my dad when he was 86. I know just how much it hurts. I’m sending you a cyber hug and hopes that friends are offering you comfort and support. After a while it won’t hurt as much.

  10. My condolences to you and your family during this difficult time.
    How wonderful though to have such happy memories of a beautiful person.
