100 Days of Happiness (98/100)

Tonight — this is really difficult.


(My husband Peter and his father Piet on our wedding day.)

Tonight, my husband Peter’s father passed away.  Opa (his name is Piet) has been suffering with dementia for the past few years.  The last 6 months have been incredibly hard for Peter’s sisters (Karen and Ann) to bear as they visited him in the care center in Holland.

Tonight, my heart is lifted knowing that Peter and Erin visited Holland last Spring, and had a chance to see Opa one last time,

Go swiftly Opa.  Go with our love.  Oma is waiting for you in heaven.  Knowing this….eases the pain a little, and allows us to smile through the tears!

Doei….for now Opa…..Diane

About Diane

Ciao! My name is Diane. I'm a wife, a mom, a working professional, and a Weight Watcher from New Jersey. I started blogging in 2011, at 45 years old, when I was training for my first Half Marathon at Rutgers on April 22, 2012. Since then, I've lost 80 pounds, completed my Half Marathon goal and gone on to train for and run my very first Full Marathon. On Jan 13, 2013, I ran the Disney Marathon in Orlando, Fl! What an incredible day. As the saying goes -- "The person who starts the race is not the same person who finishes the race." I am forever changed! So now we move on to the next phase of this journey! Come along. We're in this together!! Ciao for now!
