Will be away for this week and next

20 Sep

As you all know, my grandfather has been gravely ill.

I am sad to say that he passed away today at the age of 91. I’ll be traveling and dealing with family/arrangements for a while.

I won’t be able to blog. I think I have a couple posts auto-scheduled for the interim, but I won’t be around to answer questions, etc.

I will be back on October 3 with a  HUGE announcement that you won’t want to miss, so be sure to check back.

Take care,

    I am so sorry for your loss! Mom passed away from Alzheimer related complications on January 1, 2008. It is a heart wrenching process. She was 72. My heart goes out to you and your family. I will think of you on the 3rd and send good thoughts your way. My deepest sympathies, Christine

    My condoleances, 91 is a respectable age, but it can be a great loss never the less.
    I read your posts and reviews on FPN a lot.
    Take care!

      I just discovered your blog a few days ago and I really liked all your posts. It even inspired me to launch a new blog for my writing instruments. But I am really sorry that you are not writing for the last six months.

      Condolences to you, hope you could start writing again.

        Thank you so much. What a kind comment. I’ll get back to blogging as soon as time and circumstances permits. I promise.

    Sorry for your loss Dizzy. I too lost both my grandfathers (& my father in law & my grandma) all in less than one year (two yrs ago) so I can understand how you must feel. My prayers are w/ you & your family. I hope you are back to blogging soon. Love your ink reviews. WhistlingWriter
