Just noticed this post never was published. I'm posting anyway even though this good man is now in the arms of the Father. May peace and love continue to surround his family.
Praying for a sister-by-love and her family this morning as they keep vigil with their brother, father, granddad, uncle, husband, and good man. I remember when my family came together 10 years ago to sing and release my Dad into God's arms. My Dad always did his best to make things good for my family so it was difficult to believe that goodness wasn't leaving with him. We have found over the years how to continue that goodness--each of his kids in our own way--as we care for our families and for our Mom.
Most days more persistence than perfection. He and Mom taught us not to give up and that the Heavenly Father is always here. I know my sister-in-love knows this sustaining love and I pray her family will feel surrounded by this love as they keep vigil.
Lucy is 27 and still a kid at heart.
Take time to tell those you love that you love. them. Don't wait. Seize the day.
Peace from the beach.
Incredible sky last night.
