Now reality begins its way into the souls of those left behind by Allan's death. There is so much gratitude for the Dad and husband, yet now the harshness of his absence begins to seep in. I know all too well the feelings of not being able to pick up the phone and call one's Dad, or mother, and it weaves in and out of the consciousness, wreaking havoc for a really long time before it becomes softer. Knowing my beloved daughters are on this journey is doubly hard, and there is no way to relieve their pain. Life is moving on, jobs and everyday lives are restarted, as stoic faces lead one along by rote. They'll build strength and new appreciation as time carries them forward, yet the pain will show in many ways. My hope is they are lead to deep compassion, clarity, and understanding of themselves and others, and may they most of all see the imperative to care deeply for themselves first by nourishing their souls with good thoughts, healthy living and observing nature, the source of all healing.
A very sincere thank you for the caring and love extended to us during this time.
My health is returning and I am back to work full-time feeling stronger everyday.
Love and peace to all!!
