I have been surrounded by death and loss my entire life, but I have never personally been the recipient of sympathy cards, flowers, condolences, etc. in relation to the death of a loved one. In life we experience many firsts - some good, some bad, some sad. It is inevitable that someday you may have to sit down to write thank you notes for those who have sent love and support your way in the midst of tragedy. It was when I sat down to begin this process that I began to heal as well as realize who it was time to let go of in my circle of friends.
I want to express my heartfelt thanks to all of my extended family, friends, teammates, fellow bloggers and virtual co-workers during this time. Your kindness and support after my brother’s sudden passing has been a tremendous help for me and my family. I’m so very thankful for your sincere condolences via cards, emails, phone calls, voice/text messages and in person. I am forever grateful for your thoughtfulness.
He was a wonderful father & husband. His family was his life. He taught us all something very valuable with his open heart, his purity & his love. He left his impression on the people he touched & I hope I make him as proud as he made me.
I am thankful for you brother. Thank you for shining your light in the world. This is just good bye for now. I know I will see you again someday.
