Our beloved Appa and Amma are gone.

         

The last month of a year happens to be dear to me and I look forward to it with (some!!) enthusiasm. I celebrate my birthday that month and also by coincidence, this blog was also born in December. My blog completed three years this past December and I was thinking about posting something special for my virtual baby's third birthday.
However, God had different plans and the year 2009 ended on a tragic note for our family.
My father in law passed away during the first week of December. My grieving mother in law, who could not bear the separation of her companion of 66 years, joined him. We lost the pillars of our family, in less than two weeks.
Every one who knew Amma and Appa adored and respected them. They were my other set of parents, God sent. Probably, I would never come across again such couple in my life. They were kind, generous, unselfish and large hearted who spent most of their life giving to others.
It is still shocking to us and hard to believe that they are gone.
We miss their presence, love & affection, guidance, words of wisdom .......

It is difficult to digest this but convince yourself nothing is permanent in this world. Pray for them dear.

Suma- I am so sorry for your loss. My condolences to your family.

It is inspiring to hear about people who live their lives in such an unselfish way.

OMG! Suma, that's so tragic. But you know what? I have seen this happen before. Couples who are together for so long can't bear to be apart. One husband I knew died and his wife who was quite younger to him had a heart attack few weeks later for no reason! In a way, it warms your heart to see that and also we miss them too.
Hugs to you. Remember the good times you had with them, I am sure they are together wherever they are! :)
Happy 3 years, looking forward to more here.Take care.

I am sorry to hear the news. My Condolences to you.

I have seen many couples who have lived together for so many years not being able to cope up with the loss of their dear friend and companion. No one can replace that special person for them.

This is one thing I very much fear of & kinda run away from..... But I know very well that I cannot escape this reality..... So I pray God to take me before all of them.... So I don't have to go through this.... But I know nothing happens as I want & wish to.....

And this is one moment where I fall short of words... I don't know exactly what to say.....But yes, I feel your pain & would pray God to give you & your family the courage, to overcome this....

Ash....
