Thank you all for your well wishes.
It has been difficult for both of us. Strangely it seems that different aspects of it affect each of us in different ways. Where I am weak, she seems to be strong and vise versa. This has helped us a great deal.
All our family and close friends have been very supportive, and we have had a humbling outpouring of sympathy, well wishes, prayers, thoughts and offers of service from many people. More than we would have ever anticipated. This has also been a great comfort.
You may see some light posting from me for a couple of weeks. But I still am coming in and reading what you have to say. Having a sense of normality is a great comfort as well - and you wonderful folks at HAZ help to lift the burden as I read about other goings on.
The world, fortunately, did not end. It is still a beautiful place, and there are still wonderful people and blessings aplenty in our lives. We are simply missing one person to enjoy it all with. However, our belief is that we will be with her again, and our joy will be full.
Again - thank you all. Words cannot describe adequately my gratitude.
