ONE YEAR

Really don't know what to say to everyone. It used to be that the month of March was sort of exciting. We have the NCAA March Madness, spring is here, and it is my birthday month. Now, though, March is one of my least favorite months. It will be one year on Tuesday since Kelly went to be with the Lord. I know she is in a better place and is pain free, but I still miss her so much. My whole family does pretty good most of the time, but we all have our days where we just miss her.

This whole past year is one I wish I could forget. First there was Tanner, a young 17 year old boy, then Kelly, then Shay a 17 year old girl, and now Allen a 5 year old boy, that have all been called home by our Lord and Savior. All of these kids were friends at the Ronald McDonald house in Seattle and our now together in heaven.

Two of the dads of these kids were also good friends of mine and it is so hard for all of us to understand. I know God has his reasons, but it still makes it very hard to understand.

I wish I could really express myself on this blog as to how I feel. It has been extra hard to even go to work. I have alway enjoyed my job, but lately I would just as soon stay in bed as go to work. I don't know what else to say. Please pray for my family and me that God grants us the strength and perseverence to get through all of this. The 17th is not a day I look forward to coming.

God Bless,

Don

Don,

I am sorry that I am so late repsonding to your post. I checked your site tonight and saw you had a recent post.

I hope you all got through the day and found some comfort with one another.

I still struggle with the understanding aspect. I doubt I will ever be able to grasp that.

I haven't been able to gather my thoughts yet about last Tuesday.

I love you all and will continue to pray.
