Back Home

Sorry for the lack of recent posts, due to a death in the family. My dad, Edward Abrahams, died a few  days short of his 97th birthday. He had lost absolutely nothing mentally to the very last minute of his life, and was still strong physically, too, except for the non-covid disease which struck him at the end. He had a highly successful life in every way and a zest for living that seemed to increase with age, and left a whole lot of grandchildren and great grandchildren whom he loved and who loved him. I miss him already.

    Spence/Peter: Thanks for letting us know and our deepest condolences for your loss. I have it on very good authority that there was a massive greeting party on the other side of the bridge for your father.

    OFA: We can report that Pearl ran to meet your father and escorted him as he crossed the remainder of the Bridge. The Bridge as a whole was determined to be on our best behavior in our greeting of him, but excitement took over. He may or may or have been tackled. He may or may not have found himself at the bottom of a puppy pile of dogs and kats who wanted to be the first to give him head bump. No one regrets anything. Thankfully, he is Restored to Prime —- practically factory new. The Veil will be Thin. He is not far.

    Ah, I had been so worried.
    I am sorry that to hear of the passing of your father. One is never more of a child than when a parent dies. I remember the couple of times you mentioned him on the blog and the photo/video of the two of you catching baseballs. What a life he had! Blessings to you and your family.

    My deepest and sincere condolences on your loss.

    Both of my parents are 91 and still sharp but not quite as active. I suspect I will be joining you in loss in the not too distant future. Not soon but impending.

    Edward!… I am so very sorry for your loss Peter. I am sorry your grandchildren will not grow up with him around. We here know how it feels to lose a father and our hearts go out to you…sob!…Our prayers are with you and your family and we know it will be tough for quite a while. But Edward Abrahams led a good life and raised awesome children. He definitely made the world a better place for all of us…weep!
