It’s Thankful Thursday hosted by Brian of Brian’s Home. He wants us to post what we’re thankful for.
I think it’s a good thing to do each week. Focus on the positive things in our lives.
Make sure you link up to the Blog Hop at Brian’s Home and get the code to put on your blog. Then visit all the participants.
I’m thankful that we got to visit with our friend John several times while he was in Hospice. John passed away Tuesday evening June 2nd. He was a wonderful friend for many years.
I’m thankful that hubby and I were able to help him pull off boating functions as he aged. They can be very labor intensive at times. At first he resisted and then he embraced our help.
I’m thankful that we spent many wonderful weekends at boating functions with him and his wife Lucy. Lucy passed away last year on July 5th.
I’m thankful we had both of them in our lives. John and Lucy you are missed.

So sorry to hear about the loss of your friend. Some people touch our lives in ways that stay with us forever.
We are too, but we’re ever so happy that we could visit him before he passed. 🙂
It’s so hard to lose wonderful friends. I am so sorry, Sandee.
It is indeed and we’re old and we’re going to lose many. Us at some point too. 🙂
I’m so sorry about your friends, that’s so very sad. I’m glad you got to spend more time with John before he passed recently, and that you have memories of that dear friendship with him and with Lucy over the years to cherish 🌹 xxxxxx
We are glad we got to see him too. They were both such wonderful friends. 🙂
We are so very sorry for your loss. Losing a friend is hard, but two in a year is really tough. Glad you got to see him one last time. Hugs to you.
Yes it is and they were very good friends. Hugs back. 🙂
My condolences to you and to all who loved John and Lucy. Our friends are a treasure and our hearts break to go on without them.
These two were a treasure too. I’m so glad they were part of our lives. 🙂
So sorry about the loss of your good friend. He was very lucky to have you and Zane as good friends. Hope you can have a good day.
We were lucky to have him and his wife too, You have a good day too. 🙂
John probably died of a broken heart.
He dies of cancer, but he missed Lucy every single day. 🙂
We’re sorry to hear about John but we’re glad you were there for him. Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.
We’re glad we were too. He knew that the virus was out there but he wanted to see us more. We went. 🙂
Lucy and John….were truly blessed to have such devoted friends…Just as you and Zane were blessed to have their friendship. I’m sorry for your loss of these two very special people…now together at last
We were just as blessed, Cecilia. Big hugs. 🙂
I’m thankful to having a Facebook now that I was able to take photos of my grandchildren of their special interests. Also I was able to show some of the students I taught especially Gary and Steve. Today they are police officers, Steve in Amherstburg and Gary in London, Ontario. I;m so proud of them One student is an officer in Sarnia and and student who became an RCMP in British Columbia. Fantastic students, fantastic men today.
I saw that yesterday. Thanks for inviting me. Being a police officer was hard enough back when we were doing the job. I can’t imagine being a cop now. 🙂
We love you John.
We sure do, honey. I love you my wonderful husband. 🙂
So glad you had time to help John ~ am sure it was a treasured friendship on both sides ~ Lots of healing energy hugs for you and hubby ~ never easy to lose our significant people ~
Lots of healing hugs to you from me and Zoe ^_^

So sorry for the loss of your boating friend. Sending thoughts of comfort your way. ⛵️
Thank you my friend. 🙂
Condolences on the passing of your friend Sandee. On a brighter note, I’m thankful that the factory I work for has remained in business during the Covid lockdown & I’ve kept my job. At the same time I can’t help feel for all those who lost jobs & businesses that were forced to close. Some have had a real tough time because of the virus.
It’s been awful all the jobs lost. Things are finally opening here. 🙂
I am so sorry for your loss, but he is with his sweetheart now.
We are having a family tragedy right now and that is the hardest part, the spouse that might be left behind.
Hugs to you my friend.
Oh no. I hate it when tragedy come home to roost. I hope things turn out okay. Prayers. Hugs back. 🙂
What a face! Hugs, my dear.
Yes indeed and it’s smiling at you, Darla. Hugs back. 🙂
