Dazed

The feelings after a loss like this…maybe “dazed” is the best description, or empty, confused, exhausted, afraid, like walking on a precipice in the fog.  The hardest thing I had to do today was let the mortuary people take Dan away from me.  I cry at the most unexpected moments.  When I am alone in “my” room (no longer “our” room), I let the gut wrenching tears flow.

A memorial service in honor of Dan will be held Sunday, 7 p.m., at Coastside Church, Pacifica, CA.  In about 2 weeks a service will be held in Ft. Worth, and later in Hobart, OK.  Dan requested that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to God’s Children.  You can donate online on our webpage  gods-children.org. The website also has a mailing address to which to send your donations.

God will carry us through this.  So many people are grieving over Dan’s passing.  We all celebrate that he is Home at last with God, but we miss him.  The only solution for this deep sorrow is to cling all the more to God. — Anne (no longer Anne and Dan)

    AN IRISH PRAYER
    –Author Unknown–

    “May God give you . . .
    For every storm, a rainbow,
    For every tear, a smile,
    For every care, a promise,
    And a blessing in each trial.

    “For every problem life sends,
    A faithful friend to share,
    For every sigh, a sweet song,
    And an answer for each prayer.”

    Love to you, and my prayers going up to the Father for you all,
    Sherrie H.
