LOSS

It is the most wonderful time of the year until something sad happens. Tristen's father passed away earlier this week and my heart is aching for her.  I wish there was something I could do to take her pain away. 

With all the excitement of getting a place to live in Pittsburgh, packing up their belongings for the movers to come, leaving the day after Christmas and starting a new career as an Assistant Professor at the College of Pittsburgh I just can't bear the sadness in her heart today. 

Please keep Tristen and her family in your prayers. For those who do not know, Tristen is our sons fiance and has been a special member of our family for 8 years now.

I am so sorry to hear he passed away. It must be extra stressful for her right now: everything at once. Give her a hug from me!

Oh my goodness Debby, God bless your tender heart, and Tristen's too. How blessed she is to have your son to ease her pain, and to walk beside her through these difficult days. I know you will support her too, she is your daughter now.

You know that I'll keep you all in my prayers. May he open the doors to healing and peace.

That is so sad. Especially during the holidays. We just lost a family friend (an older fellow), and his funeral is tomorrow.

It's an especially hard time of year to lose someone. We had a terrible school bus wreck here last week and I can't imagine what the holidays from here on out will be like for the parents who lost kids.

Chatty Crone said...

I certainly will - I am so sorry - it is so hard no matter what age we are to lose our father. Hugs and prayers her way.

Oh no, my prayers are with her and her family.
