I'm so sorry Penny. Your Dad sounds like my Dad, what a lovely man he must have been.


So sorry. HUGS. Seeing your kitchen doesn't matter. You do and the memories you made together.


I'm sorry about your father. I'm glad you wrote this post--it was very special.


Penny what a lovely post. So glad you had a lifetime of journeys with your Dad, although I am sure you had many more planned, it is great to realize that like a compass to guide you through these journeys, he will be along with you always. As a Daddy's girl who lost her Dad to cancer 14 years ago, my heart breaks for you and sending lots of love and good vibes your way.


What a lovely post and thank you for sharng a little snippet of your time with your dad. They are a hard person to loose from your life (my dad passed away when I was only 9) but they forever have that special place in your heart. Cherish those memories. Sending love to you and your family at this time. Hugs, Sharon


Penny, I am so sorry for your loss. Memories of our fathers are so precious.

and I am the stars.

Wow! Stunning! Have been praying for you and thinking about you the past two weeks pretty nonstop. Thankful for the creativity, love and memories your Dad has given you! You are blessed! Thanks for making us mindful to not miss an opportunity to tell the ones we love how important and special they are!

Very sorry to hear about your Dad. My Dad has been gone for 11 years now and I still miss him every day. Like you, there are many memories of the journeys to many places as he did love to drive all over our state. Keep in your heart and he will always be with you!

Mary Ellen H.

Very sorry about your dad. Your wonderful memories will make you smile.


So sorry about your loss, Penny. It sounds like your dad was a great man. You're in my thoughts, hugs to you.

Carol Turznik

I'm so sorry to read about your father, Penny. There's nothing like a Daddy! Be happy that you have such marvelous memories. My father died when I was 6, so I don't remember much about him at all.


So sorry to hear about your dad...thinking of you!

Ranger Anna

Not a day goes by that I don't miss my Dad, and it's been 10 years. But he lives in me and I cherish my memories.
Peace and blessings in this hard time.


Oh Penny, I'm so sorry to hear about your father. Sending you big jumbo hugs!


Penny I'm so sorry for your loss. The story about you Dad made me smile and those memories are precious. That's a great attitude he had and I hope you always enjoy your journeys too.
The kitchen looks fabulous. The blind and rug are gorgeous and I'm loving the Coca Cola sign! x


Penny, you did it; you wrote it down. Keep it up! You have some of your dad in you that you didn't realize. You take the time to value the people you know and those you meet whether as patients or your blog friends. You value the time you have with them all. He lives on in you.


So sorry to hear about the loss of your Daddy. I love what you wrote about him and the time you spent with him.

Amanda Jean

I've been praying for you, Penny. This is a beautifully written post. Made me a little teary. Sending you a big hug.

Your kitchen looks lovely!


Penny, I am so sorry to hear about your dad and thanks for taking the time to let us know how you have been. Such a beautiful memory..!


What a great post Penny, really sad but then not sad in a way. Big fat virtual hugs from me to you. XXX
