Stormy Weather

Today is visitation, tomorrow the funeral. Two feet of snow remain on the ground, and another foot or more is on its way. What is a difficult situation is now also a challenging one, and many people who want to come cannot be here because it's just too risky. If you are one of them, we know your heart is with us. We can honor Jon's life later, in other ways.

For now, be safe. That means more to us than having you by our side today and tomorrow.

My love and sincere appreciation to all who have sent messages. Keep us in your prayers and thoughts.

I hope you and all your family stay safe and warm. You'll be in my thoughts and prayers today and tomorrow, and for a long long long time ahead. Hang on.

I, for one, am glad and grateful that you are warm and out of the snow. I'm also grateful that you are still writing. I've still been searching for the words to tell you what I'm thinking, especially after your last post. But words, of course, are never enough. Please know that I'm thinking of you all end sending strength your way.

Do know that you are in my thoughts and prayers and have been since I read your post about Jon's death.

May the Lord give you and your family the strenth that you need to get through tonight, tomorrow and the rest of time. Know that you are loved and we sincerely wish that you weren't having to go through this.

You and your family will be in my thoughts tomorrow.

Susanna, you have some hard days ahead but there will be laughter and sharing and memories to tell, in these next two days. You have a world wide "family" out here, sending you prayers of courage and strength. Your mettle will carry you through.

My deepest sympathies to you and your whole family. I have no idea of the scope of a loss like this, but know it is great. I am so sorry.

I do hope you continue on here as you are a part of so many extended families through your posts here.

You have my prayers.
