H.M. Knowles 1944 - 2003

All - I just wanted to let you know that two weeks ago today my Dad passed away. He died in my arms at the hospital. He was admitted the Friday before with what seemed to be an infection, weakness and trouble breathing and he just couldn't beat it this time. He died peacefully and I thank God for that. He fought so hard.

It's been so tough on my Mom and I...we loved him dearly and now he is gone. He was so brave through everything and it's so unfair that he lost his battle at just 59 years of age. There was so much living left to do and time that we three deserved together. I don't know how people pick up and find the strength to go on.

We had his funeral Wednesday, November 26 and it was a beautiful service - a real tribute to my Dad. Several friends spoke and there was an outpouring of love from so many. I was able to speak as well, and that has helped me a great deal.

I want to thank you all for your support and advice over the last 7 months. You are truly a blessing in my life. I will keep you all in my prayers.

God bless us all,

I am so sorry to hear about your father. It is so hard when we lose those we love so dearly.

Please stick around here. It has been my life line since Randy died back in August. I have found everyone here to be such help in my grieving process. I realize that we all do it differently, but stick around.

I am praying for you and your mother and the rest of your extended family. I know how hard it can be.

Again, I am so sorry.

Much love,

If I Could Catch a Rainbow:

If I could catch a rainbow, I would do it just for you, And share with you its beauty, On the days you’re feeling blue. If I could build a mountain, You call your very own, A place to find serenity, A place to be alone. If I could take your troubles, I would toss them in the sea, But all these things I’m finding, Are impossible for me. I cannot build a mountain, Or catch a rainbow fair, But let me be what I know best A friend that’s always there. Author Unknown

So sorry to hear of your loss, Kelly. Many of us here have experienced loss of a loved one to this horrible disease. This wonderful group of understanding people have helped me so much since my husband's death nearly a year ago. Someone is always here to listen when you need an ear, give advice when you need a voice and always give hugs when you need love!

All -

Thank you so much for all the kind messages on the loss of my Dad. I really appreciate your support over the last 7 months.

The holidays were really tough on us. Christmas Eve was the one month anniversary of Dad's death. We tried to be strong and celebrate in our own way, but there was a huge void in our hearts....I don't think that void will be filled forever.

I know the holidays were challenging for all of us, and I said a prayer that God would send us all peace.

Take care & thanks again,
