And so….

It is with my heart broken, my soul numb, that I let all of those who have been my friends on WP to say these words…

My darling Pop (my penguin) left our earthly coil on the 19th of April, 2017 at 12:25pm, after a 15 hour fight to remain.

I stayed with him by his side, in his hospital room, for 6 days. Time to be, time to share.

His transition started 10pm on the 18th, his life ending after my brother, I and mum were in the room and my brother and I stood her up to give him a hug. The moment she put her head on his chest, he slightly opened his eyes, closed his mouth from the shallow breathing and relaxed. A few minutes later he joined the Angels and his youngest son.

No words describe the pain
For he was my rock
A connection without words
RIP you beautiful and much loved man
Until our paths cross once again

  1. My Dearest Friend, we will grieve with you. Your WP message came onto my phone at 11.11 pm…. the Spirits … number 11 and double. A great and wondrous sign my friend.

  2. Awwww Mumsy. Hugs so tight. He is in your head, your heart, you can visit with him any time, your love for him so powerful and he knew it. He truly knew it and this is what makes it so hard. He has such an amazing daughter. He knew this too. Ask him, you will hear his answer. πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–

  3. You wrote a beautiful note on his passing. I’m sure he would be pleased. I heard once that “You can give up the grieving, you don’t have to give up the loving.” I still love my Dad nearly 40 years later. My sympathy to you and your family.

  4. Oh Jenny! So sorry for your loss of Papa Penguin! I’ve grown to love him through you! He was so fortunate to have you as a daughter, and I am so glad you got to be with him in his last days and hours on this earth. In time, you will remember that with tears of joy and gladness, but for now allow yourself all the time you need to grieve. Hugs from Mars!

  5. Nothing I can say will help but twee as it may sound he is at peace no more struggle or pain. Time will help i promise. God rest your soul Pops πŸ’œπŸ’—πŸ’

  6. Oh Jen, very sorry to hear about the loss of your beloved pop. The special connection that you and he shared shone through your writing and persona. My thoughts are with you and your family x

  7. Oh Jen, I am so sorry. Tears welled up as I read your tender, sensitive words. I felt as if I were right there. You were lucky to have him and he to have you. A warm hug from me to you. And much love. ❀ ❀
