uncle doug passed away two weeks ago yesterday, surrounded by his family. my heart just breaks for his wife, daughters and grandchildren, who are now suffering the loss of this kind and loving man. a lot of people loved him. it was easy for everyone to see, weaving through the crowd of friends, colleagues and family at his memorial and hearing their stories of what he meant to them.

your kind words and prayers have been so considerate. it's been a help during these confusing couple of weeks.

  4. Im so sorry to hear that elly. Yesterday we buried my brother and I know that despite the pain of it, it was so nice hearing everyone say the same wonderful things about him that we felt. I never understood before, because I've never lost before, that the words of others, their kind gestures, they make such a huge difference.
