Capturing Life's Fleeting Moments…

Loss… May 5, 2009

Filed under: Friends & Family,Personal — Jen @ 5:49 pm

I’m sure some of you are wondering where I’ve been for the past couple weeks and as many of you know I normally don’t miss a day of blogging if I can help it.

The reason I’ve been away so long is that my father was in a near-fatal motorcycle accident last Saturday, April 25th in North Carolina where he lives. Luckily I happened to be in North Carolina less than an hour and a half away and was able to go to the hospital immediately.

Unfortunately, his brain injuries were too severe for recovery and he passed away Friday, May 1st at 11:54 p.m.  I’m still in North Carolina because the memorial service will be Saturday and will be here until I leave on Monday to head back to NJ.

I appreciate all of your support through the past couple weeks and I will be back soon!

    I’m so very sorry about your father. I know there isn’t anything one can say to make you feel any better right now but here is a big e-hug. Know that your father is in heaven looking down on his wonderful daughter, who gifts the world with her passion and creativity. I’m sure we will see a wonderful tribute to him from you soon. Hang in there. You are a great person – You will be O.K.

    Jen, my condolances to you and your family. Just know that my Mom is there showing your Dad the ropes and she will make sure he knows where all the good Lookout spots are. I know she looks in on me all the time as your dad will with you as well.
    Take good care of yourself during this time and rely on those close to you for love and support.
