    Friends and fellow degenerates... thank you for all the kind notes and txt's I've received over the past several months... I've missed you guys! My dad passed away on 5/24 after a long battle with cancer. I'm OK, my mom is having a very hard time, as you can imagine. They were married for 49 years.

    Because I have to keep living life, my dad would insist on that... I am and I'm doing things BIG.

    I'll be in town 6/26-6/30 if anyone is available for a drink and a hand or two...

    XO,

    -MrsFuri

    Mrs. Furi,

    I didn't know about your father's illness but I thought something might be up as we have missed you and I think of you often! Among other things, we have missed your really good posts about Vegas, fashion and packing!

    Though we never met I hope you know that lots of VMBers and I are sending prayers and positive thoughts your way. :love:

    Your Dad was blessed to have you at his side, sending warmest regards to you and your family. Looking forward to seeing you post again - this board has been sadly lacking in fashionista posts in your absence. Hope you have a great trip at the end of the month and if you are up to it, would love some posts and pics. Welcome back Mrs Furi!!!!

    I am so sorry. Losing a parent is losing a part of your heart. The pain really never goes away but in time you learn to laugh and smile remembering the great times.
    Enjoy your trip. I'm sure he will be with you.
