:( I'm back with sad news

So once again I am apologizing for being MIA for so long.  We had a very sad homecoming after our Easter WDW trip this year. 

My dad was hospitalized due to dehydration while we were away and I thought it wasn't too serious as this had happened in the past and he's usually been ok after a brief stay.  He was also suffering from some gastro problems so we thought that he was in the right place for them to find out what the problem was so he could be healed.  However, this was not to be.  My dad passed away on Saturday 4/13 with me and my sisters by his side. It has been a difficult time although we know that he's finally with my mom who passed almost 20 years before him and my family has gained a new guardian angel.  Still, it is very unbelievable and we're taking it a day at a time. Luckily, the kids keep us busy as life goes on, as it should.

We had a really nice time in WDW with my cousin and her family but it feels like a lifetime ago.  I'm trying to get back into the Disney swing of things and hope to post a report and, wouldn't it be amazing, some pictures.  Thanks for understanding.

I am so sorry to hear of your dads passing, Val. I am sure he is watching over your girls alongside your mom now, but it is so hard to lose a parent. Prayers for you and your family as you get through this.

So sorry to hear about your dad. We lost my FIL on almost the same date last year, in a very similar situation. It's always so hard. Hopefully reliving some of the memories from your trip can at least give you a brief distraction. Hang in there!

I am so sorry Val.  I can't imagine losing a parent.  And sudden-like, too.  Not that you can prepare for that kind of thing really Frown  I still tear up several times a month when something reminds me of my Nana, and she died 4-1/2 years ago.  They're good tears, though.

Saying a prayer for you.
