I have sad news to share on behalf of kraftiekortie.

Kortie's father passed away this afternoon in Chicago, following a two month illness and rehabilitative treatment.
He is flying to Chicago tonight New York time, to be with his brother and step-mother.

I didn't know where else to post this news, but I'm sure he would appreciate everyone's support.

Thanks everyone.
Isabella

I'm so sorry for Kraftie's loss. I wish him all the strength in the world in these extremely difficult times. To you as well Isabella because this must bring back memories of your father.

My sincere condolences.

Stay safe and please take good care of yourself. To Isabella as well.

Oh, no. And thank you for posting this, IsabellaLinton. His father seemed to be improving.

kraftiekortie is as caring about his WrongPlant.net friends, as he is about his family and relatives.

If he reads this while visiting, I hope he knows he should take as much time as he needs.

Thank you folks!

My father always said to not prevent yourself from having fun, no matter what.

He wouldn’t want you all to be sad on account of him.

He feels he’s going to a “better place.”

The death of parent is always a significant transition in our lives and I hope this one proceeds gently for you.

Well then at least try & have some fun in Chicago. I can't entirely deal with how huge it all is but that's a lot of cool city to see. I hope some part of this clarifies things for you.

If my funeral's not an absurdly ridiculous party I'll know I messed something up.
