The Entry I Thought I Would Write, Then Didn't, Then Did Again, Then Just Wished I'd Not Have To.

Dad left us today around 11:30am. It was so very peaceful. Please expect a period of gushy reflection, followed by silence followed by I cannot imagine what.

Thank you.

I can only imagine how difficult the last few months have been for you and your family. I'm sure that on some level, it was a tremendous blessing to be there.

But it's still so sad to read this.

I know I haven't said this before, but y'all have been in my prayers and will continue to be there.

I am sorry for your loss. I wish words could feel more than empty at times like these.

"Hope" is the thing with feathers –
That perches in the soul –
And sings the tune without the words –
And never stops – at all –

And sweetest – in the Gale – is heard –
And sore must be the storm –
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm –

I've heard it in the chillest land –
And on the strangest Sea –
Yet, never, in Extremity,
It asked a crumb – of Me.

Dearest Sister Under the Skin,

I cannot express to you how much this news affects me. I am five months further don this road you are now on, having lost my own Dad at the end of January.

I prayed for you at church today, and I will pray for you and your family every day. I am thinking of you throughout each day. May you feel a measure of comfort flowing from all of us whom you and your dad have touched.

God Bless and give you peace.

I lost my father in January very suddenly. Their abscense is something you can never really recover from.

I have found solace in my brothers and sisters. I hope this sadness can somehow bring you closer to your family as well.
