Julie! :((

I am so sorry...

May he find the peace he needs now. (...and he is shaking things around "up there"--the way you know he would)

Please give my condolences to Duck as well...and a big ((HUGS)) to you.

Your family is in my prayers.

Sorry to hear Jules. It's always difficult when we lose loved ones.

Keep a stiff upper lip and know others are thinking of you.

Ya know.....My Father-in-law served his country in the second World War...

ever stop to think...how powerful the term..."WORLD WAR"..is....????
It means "WORLD" war....THE WORLD...ain't no getting around that!!!!!

and today is the Anniversary of "Pearl Harbor"(RIP all those who perished there in Pearl Harbor...!!!!!!!!!!!!.........

and while my Father-in-law)known as Pop's....to everyone...was stationed in Germany....

and in fact...my husband was born there, in Germany, during Pop's tour of duty... .....
and as bit of an antidote....My husband's real name is Jerome.....named after a hotel("Hotel Jerome", may have been spellled with a 'G')there in that German town...he was stationed...

Pop's had been declining,after his fall, during these last several weeks...and while Duck and myself...knew that.....you CAN, on some levels prepare...yourself...(good to the situation)...

What you CAN'T prepare for....under any circumstances.....
is the intial shock....of the passing......!!!!!!!!!!

we can say to ourselves, till the cows come home,..."I know the end is coming"....the 'kicker in the gut' is,
while knowing all that,...................

"YOU DON'T GET TO PICK THE DAY THEY DIE......"

I HONOR MY FATHER-IN-LAW...POP'S....FOR BEING A WONDERFUL MAN.......WHO SERVED HIS COUNTRY...... "I SALUTE HIM"~...

Duck doesn't want me there with him at this time.....for removal of his body....and the intial tasks associated...
Pop's passed this morning.....

so I am still at work, finishing some things that need to be done before leaving.........
I'm also spending time HERE with YOU, my Dear Friends...
Here is a blanket "THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF Duck's and I's HEARTS...!!!!

Julie/Jules/^J^/misstwa/....FRIEND

istanbul airside said...

I wasn't expecting that, after just a 'broken arm'. So sorry to hear that Julie...

getjets said...

THANK YOU SO MUCH METIN................!!!!!!

LOVELY SURPRISE'S....!!!

THATS WHAT YOU ARE TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!

A LOVELY SURPRISE......

getjets said...

Metin....he was frail...already....and the fall......and broken arm....

I think.... like many....aren't strong enough to recover.....and the inability to take care of himself........


so many times...I've heard ....about the elderly and "falls" and to see a member of your family...decline....VERY DIFFICULT to see and you can imagine for the person....Even Harder....!!!!!

................well, he's safe now.....!!!

I hope you are well!!!!!!!!!!....
and again, I Thank you for such Thoughtfullness!!!!!!!!!!!!!
