The world lost one of it's brightest stars yesterday..
My father in-law, Al Berlin.
I have been so blessed to have known him and to have had him, as a part of my life and extended family.
The things I will remember & miss most, are his loving nature, his smile, the super strong hand crushing hand shakes & hugs and his terrible jokes:)
He loved people, those who surrounded him everday, at his retirement home & in life.
Always willing to help anyone in any way he could.
He will be missed by so many..
Today is a day I will take for myself, to reflect, remember and mourn the loss of my favorite father in law...
May the heavens be blessed with his presence. He is someone that will be missed every day of my life..
Life is so fleeting, you just never know what the day will bring..
So it is important that those you love know it, without a doubt..
As I grow older it becomes more important every day, that those I know, know how much I care for them.
Living every day as if it were our last, makes us focus on the here and now, trying to focus and live in the moment is so vital.
So I say to you, those that read this blog, you are so very much appreciated and loved for the support & love you give to me..
Thank you from the bottom of my heart..
To the king of all kings..
Till we meet again...
I Love you Al....
I am SO VERY SORRY to hear about your loss.
My sincere condolences to you and Jeff!
I am positive Al would truly appreciate your loving and caring words of remembrance.
Okay...you don't know me but I found you from your book. I browsed it the bookstore today! Would have bought it but it will have to wait till payday.
I love your animal support...all those sweet babies! My Polymer Clay group online has just started a new ebay site where we make a themed creation every month and proceeds go to charity. I am going to submit your organization for one of the upcoming auctions. This month, we are doing polar bear rescue. My group is this: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Beginners_Polymer_Clay_Art_Guild/messages?o=1
Nice to meet you. I can see that you have a kind heart.
I just recently found your site (I am not even sure how) and you have really touched my heart. I am a fellow animal lover, although I cannot attest to any level of giving that you provide for your animals. We have a rotti who came from a rescue and seeing the pictures of your dogs brings back so many memories. Wanting to take them all home, but knowing we couldn't.
When I read through your archives it makes me think that you are truly an angel who has been placed on this earth to care for those who cannot care for themselves. Your heart must be so strong to deal with the pain you see. I am in awe of all you do for our four (and sometimes three) legged friends. God bless you.
