"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

It broke my heart all over again...

I was talking to my mother-in-law and they are just leaving the hospital. She said she couldn't bear to leave while "my pop was still there." She always called him pop and she sounded so lost.

Oh, Kristen, just catching up here. I'm so sorry! My thoughts are with you all.

Kristen, you are such a rock. I'm sure you will be a comfort to your mother in law. Lots of loving from your boys will help, too. Big hugs!

I can't imagine how hard it must be for her. Tell her folks out here are sending love.

It is hard, no doubt. There are no "right" words to say. Just lots of hugs and support. I can't say it enough, so I'll just say it again and again...mostly because it was the best advice ever given to me when my mom passed..be good to you!
-Thinking about ALL of you, D
