Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!

I just wanted to thank you all for your kind comments and good wishes. It really means a lot!

Winston passed away early this morning. It has been a long battle and I hope he is in a better place.



This picture says everything. Goodbye to a great grandpa!

I am so sorry for you and your family. RIP Winston, thankfully his suffering is over.
My husband was devastated when his Mom passed but he was also relieved for her because she was free from that terrible disease.
Hugs.

I am in tears for you & your family. My mother passed away 4 years ago after fighting MS for 23 years. As much as you know they are no longer suffering it's still hard to lose someone you love. I am convinced Winston passed on this morning so he will be able to join the party to celebrate my Mom's birthday which is also today. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Hi, Kristen. I have been out of touch with the blogosphere for a while, due to stupid work. I just heard the news from Eve.

I'm sorry for your loss. In his last days, he had a loving, caring family around him. I'm sure that meant a lot. May he rest in peace now.
