Memorial Service in the Morning....

My Father in Law of almost 25 years has recently passed on and tomorrow is his Memorial Service.  Jack was a retired Fire Captain from the Toronto Fire Dept.  He joined the Department back in 1957 and served proudly for 32 years.  His loss will be felt deeply by my Family for the rest of our days but we are so happy that he is out of pain and has a peaceful passing. 
I sat and worked on a rag rug during his last few days, it sure did help to occupy my mind and my hands during a tough time.  Crafting stuff can be so soothing and theraputic, don't you think?
Love you Jack.

  1. Kim, I'm so sorry for the loss to you and your family. I know you are very proud of your father-in-law and he will be deeply missed. Firefighters wherever they serve are all one family. My son is a firefighter in TX. You are right, doing handwork can be very therapeutic and help occupy the mind during tough times.
