I am completely verklempt at the outpouring of support from all of you. I knew there would be comments and concern and caring. I knew you would all respond to my news with kindness. But I had no idea how much better it would make me feel. I have this image of the world in my head with glowing beams of light coming from the places where you all live to the place where I am. And that place where I am? It’s glowing with the brightest light I’ve ever seen due to all of you. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart for every comment, every word of encouragement and understanding, every expression of concern and love. It truly means more to me than you could ever realize.
The wake is tonight from 5 until 8. The funeral is tomorrow morning at 10. My dad had everything planned, all I really had to do was okay it all, which made things quite simple and easy for the entire family. Maybe I’m being naive and underestimating my emotions at this point but I feel okay.
Nevertheless, keep sending those beams of light, would ya? I have a strong suspicion they are what’s carrying me along.
