I dont really have a lot to say...just wanted to let you know that I am thinking of you and praying for strength for you and your boys as you go through what I am sure will be one of the most difficult days of your lives...
Me too Kim, thinking about you today. Told my husband today about Stan. He said, it felt like we knew you both. Nothing much to say other than holding you in our hearts. Peace be with you and those special boys of yours.
As I was working in my yard yesterday I just kept praying for God to comfort you and the boys. I hope that Stan's service has etched special memories in your minds and hearts. He must have been great guy to be so loved by his family.
Thanks for the prayers and thoughts...Oh, words cannot express enough how comforting and touching Stan's service and reception turned out yesterday. We had 300 friends/family show up for the service. We have a very small family so it was about 270 friends...amazing. It was a relief, but at the same time I was sad, but Stan died knowing how much love we are surrounded by and it really showed at the service and reception. My mom will be with us until July 2nd so that will be my real test when she drives away, but I also think I will need some space by then. We are planning two vacations and we just found out Andrew is going to Cal State Fullerton...yes! (Stan graduated from there so will mean a lot to Andrew)
I am tired and want to try to get some rest. Again, thanks my dear friends. I miss my Stan, but hold him so close to my heart and thoughts that I feel like he should be calling my name or walk in the door, but must remind myself he is no longer going to do that.
It is wonderful to see the love and devotion of the family and friends that Stan had in his life. What a wonderful testament to the life he lived. I am sure that fills you and the boys with great pride to have so may confirm what a wonderful man Stan was.
Having Andrew accepted to the same college that Stan went to is just a wonderful thing, and the timing couldn't be better to hear that news. I know Stan must be so proud of you and his sons.
I pray that God grants you much peace and comfort in the days and weeks ahead.
