Courtney would have been nineteen today, the 16th of February. Jessica would have been twenty-five on the 12th. Robin would have turned fourteen later this year. I have to admit, I am weak. In many ways I am still completely undone by their deaths in the time between 1993 and four and a half years later. I tend to feel that much of my life has passed me by, washed away by death and loss and grief.
Some things heal me. My wife's love. The faith of others. Things beyond words. Grace that is beyond my ability to explain.
But real, tangible and so much my heart and life, the love of my wife sustains me. Thank you.
