The Old Navy Man


Richard Eaton
(The Old Navy Man) 
August 4, 1941 - November 29, 2013

After a long illness, Richard passed peacefully in our home on Friday morning.  As you all know, he was my hero for now and always.  Our children were all here and we are currently bent, but not broken....we have a lifetime of lovely memories.

I will be taking the month of December to rest and remember,  then look forward to 2014.  Please join me in January with hopes for a better and a happier New Year.  Thank you so much for 'being there' with  me since beginning this blog in 2008.


I just had to post this photo - one fine day, he came into the Nest with this little backyard bouquet and I snapped this photo of his precious hands...and this is the second one, after his Navy photo, that I knew I would post today.  This photo explains everything I would try to describe best about him and I think you 'get' it. Til January....big hugs, pat

My dearest Pat- this has been a long road that you have traveled with your Navy man-- you have taken such good care of him- always attentive-- always being there for him.

I'm so sorry for your loss, this is a heartache that won't ever heal- but I'm praying that you will come to find peace with his passing.

Please do take all the time you can to rest-- it's been days-- weeks-- months since you've had a true rest.

Sending you love and prayers-
Vicki

Hello,
I am sorry for your loss, and i hope you will have a wonderful 2014. I am convinced that the 'Veil' we speak of is truly a flimsy film, and your loved one and best friend is nearby watching over, as he always has. I pray for the Lord's choicest Blessings of comfort and love to be with you always.
