Time for grieving

As I hinted yesterday, this has been a hard period for me and my boyfriend and there is some additional hardness in store for us. His father died last night after a fight with cancer so this is going to be a time for grieving for all of us.

Joža wasn’t my father but I knew him for 8 long years and my boyfriend’s family has become an additional family to me.

He was one of the nicest people I know – forgiving of everyone, with a kind word for everyone, a silent pillar of strength with a lot of knowledge (some of which included making great wine and spirits).

We will miss you!

    Oh sweet girl , my thoughts go out to you and your boyfriend . No one wants those they love to pass , but if he was suffering , even now I believe he is at peace and watching over you .The perfumes you wear now float away for him to smell on high…may you find peace and comfort from those around you !
