« Autumn | Main | So Grateful »

November 13, 2010



Ann, my heart is full for you today. You said everything so honestly and beautifully and with such love.


I will hold you in my prayers as well. Be gentle with yourself. And, yes, I hear the hope through and in this, as you speak so tenderly about suffering.


Grief, it is always just beneath the surface no matter how many years have passed. Sometimes we forget that it is there until it bubbles right back up raw and real. I am so happy that you are writing and sharing here. I too believe that we will all see our loved ones again. I take such solace in that belief. Sending you positive energy and love and thanks for the words of hope.

Your daughter was lovely.



Surrounding you with prayer.

I didn't even attempt to watch Marie Osmond on Oprah. Eight months after my sin jumped to his death - what was I doing? Wow. I was in seminary, taking three classes, and crying myself to sleep every night like a wild animal in pain. Now it has been almost 27 months. And for you, 27 years. One of my friends said, "Every day we think we can't survive another one without them, and then one day we look up and it's been years."

Such a hard way to live.

Your beautiful, beautiful girl.
