Together we are making it through. Each day is filled with sweet memories and a sadness that consumes. As we reflect back on the difficulty of the last six weeks, various aspects stand out that helped make the dark journey a bit easier.

Walking Her Home

What a privilege it is to walk a loved one to the gates of Heaven and know it will be but a blink before we unite once again.
