Last week was a very hard week for our family. Our granddaughter unexpectedly passed away. Many times during the last week, the sadness and pain seemed unbearable. But out of this tragedy also comes good things. We’ve received many, many expressions of sympathy and love – so much so that we’ve been a bit overwhelmed by it all. Those expressions really do help – perhaps more than I ever anticipated. Simply letting someone know that you care matters. It doesn’t take much — for every kind word matters. Our family was certainly comforted by it all.
Yes, we will continue to be sad at times as we work through our grief because we will greatly miss our granddaughter. Life has changed. But we will also move forward and experience the joys in life again – as she would want us to do. Already we have seen family relationships become stronger and friendships renewed. I am fully convinced that those things will only get better as time goes on.
