Thank you & Giveaway

I would like to thank each & every one of you for your prayers for our family. It meant so much to me to hear from so many of you. Your kind words gave me strength.

My dear father in law passed away on Easter Sunday of a massive heart attack. He was 73 years old & so full of life. What makes his passing so difficult, is he left us a giant mess. We are still sifting through mounds of papers & other things looking for important papers. Nothing is together. My mother in law did not know where anything was. He took care of the household. She doesn't even drive. It will be a long process, but we will manage.

Thank you all for listening.

Now, back to my giveaway. I will post the winners tomorrow. I will draw a name for the quilt & pinkeep dolly. I will then pick a second winner, because thanks to you all, I have made it to 200+ friends. And I will pick a third winner for making you all wait for me. Winner #2 & #3 will each get a pinkeep dolly. I'll even let you choose the dress color.

Thank you all again for your thoughts & prayers in our time of sorrow.

Blessings~Becky

Have still been thinking of you and your family Becky. My MIL is pretty much the same way, her husband took care of everything and drove everywhere. She knows how to drive but doesn't if she doesn't have to. I can remember the mess that my hubby and his siblings had to go through when his dad passed away. But yes, they did make it and so will you, but it will be hard.
HUGS to you!!
