Bad News Today



 These collages of my dad as a boy were made for a birthday one year.
 Their engagement annoucement.  I made this collage for their 55th.
 He was in love with my mom the first day they met.
I thank you all for your prayers for my dad but he passed yesterday morning. He and my mom had been together for 59 years. We are all doing ok. I guess I am still in shock as it is hard to believe that he is gone. My dad was one of those incredible people who knew a little bit about every subject. He was always learning new things and had an incredible love of books. My dad Iz Ungar was a polymer chemist and even after he retired he worked until he was 79 travelling worldwide consulting. He had over 50 US Patents to his name and 100 international patents.

Thank you all for your words of comfort.  It is great to konw there are so many friends out there.

My deepest sympahies to you and your family and all who loved your father.I lost my father 6 years ago...my mother had died 5 yrs before that and they had been married for 65 yrs. He started "dying" when she went to heaven. Your father sounds like a wonderful man who will be deeply missed. I hope your memories help you through this difficult and painful time. Ann

Кора, примите мои соболезнования. Мой отец и отец моего мужа, они сейчас в больнице и ожидают операции. так совпала что они оба больны. Мы все семьей стараемся им помочь, и я даже не понимаю что будет если их не станет.... Я не могу понять Ваше горе ...... но хочу поддержать Вас в трудную минуту. У меня 10 лет назад погиб 20летний брат - и мы успокаивали себя мыслью что в том мире ему лучше и легче. Пусть и Вашему отцу будет там легко и хорошо. У нас в России говорят - пусть земля ему будет пухом... Крепитесь.

Oh, bless your heart! There are few things in life that will impact you the way this will, and I wish there were something I could say to make you feel better. I can tell you definitively that you should not worry that he will "go" away from you. I am very happy to tell you that he will always be with you, and it is such a comfort. It's been 12 years for me, and Daddy is still here!

Cora, my condolences go to you and your family. Your Dad sounds a lot like my late Father-in-Law. He too was always learning new things and even up until his death at age 87, he was teaching himself how to use a computer.
Your Dad may not be with you in person but he has moved to a special place in your heart where he will always be.
Big Gentle Hugs!
Cec

Warm greetings from Yvon
