Thank You All

Thank you so much to all those who commented on my last post.  Your comments really did help me, as did putting my feelings “out there”.  I am feeling ok about things and I know both my sister and I will be ok.

Today, my dad’s best friend passed away unexpectedly.  They have been friends since childhood and they are now in the late 60’s.  They have lived in the same town together for most of their lives and less than 5 minutes away.  They spend tons of time together and take great joy in their friendship.  My heart is now aching for my dad, as well as this man’s family and my own family.  We loved this great man very, very much.

Today I am thankful my best friend is only 6 hours away, and not in heaven yet.  I have much to be grateful for so I will focus on those things and be happy!


  1. oh wow, Emily. I am so very sorry! It really does put things in perspective, doesn't it? Today is the 1 year anniversary of my grandfather's death and it has been extremely hard. I've spent the past week doing nothing but thinking about death and living and heaven and moving forward. And now I'm crying again to think about how fresh everything must be for everyone who knew this man and what you must all be feeling right now. big hugs. I am so, so sorry.

  2. So sorry to hear about Ron. Hugs and prayers to your family and the Giffords. Love you!!
