Dear TeaChatters,

Sadly, my father has just passed away, though I prefer to celebrate his long and good life more so that mourn his death. We have all had time to prepare for his passing, so I am doing OK.

I am sure tea will continue to be a part of the day as will checking on the forum, seeing what is up. Though I suspect I will be posting a little less over the next several days, and I might not be "normal," though when am I? :mrgreen:

So, please continue on ... enjoy your tea, share about your tea experiences here on TeaChat. This will bring some joy in a difficult time.

Your thoughts and prayers are greatly appreciated.

Chip

I'm sorry for your loss, Chip.
I'm sure we'll all try to keep the forum active in the upcoming days to give you some distraction.
You have my condolences. Be strong but remember that it's OK to be weak sometimes.
