Of course I am thinking of all the times my family and other of Caelin's friends spent summer days at the cabin and the open-hearted welcome we always received. So many lovely meals shared, the dominoes and cards, the continuous joking, the abundant garden and berries and, in the past few years, the live music--Jack and Bonnie have done everything to make us feel like part of the family. I won't soon forget the impromptu sing-a-long on the front porch last summer. I feel lucky to have known Jack and I will miss his great smile and wry humour. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

I am grateful for the many opportunities you and Jack provided for me to visit (with Caelin and company) at the lake. Our precious few days each summer (that I was able to make) were always delightful. For the past few visits, leaving the lake at the end of our visit was with an uncertainty of seeing jack again, as his health was declining. He was open to or willing, or just not interested in protesting against being hugged, and I was contacting him as if it wold be the last time. This summer was that time. I am grateful for knowing him, appreciating the hospitality, the humour, the definite ways he had in doing things (!), and for understanding more about the dynamic of father and son. Caelin (and Santana) have been a part of my life for a long time. Caelin introduced me to you and Jack probably around 1995. I am sending you loving thoughts during this time. May you be surrounded by loving family and friends.
I am regretful to hear of the loss of your dear loved one, Patrice so young and so beautiful. when something as tragic as death affect us, the tears flow automatically due to the pain we may feel inside. Within your grieving and recovery, may Gods’ mercy surround you. John 5:28,29 tells of a resurrection; ‘A better place.’
My deepest condolence for the loss of your mom, she sounds as though she was the spice in your lives. May Gods’ promises that mourning nor outcry nor pain being no more at Revelation 21:4, (A better place) be a comfort to you in your time of grief and recovery.
So very sorry for the loss of your dear loved one Mykel. Death is an enemy: due to the deep pain and sorrow it brings, it represents the loss of future dreams, relationships and experiences that have not yet been enjoyed. In the Bible at 1 Corinthians 15:26 it tells us death will be abolished and John 5:28, 29 speaks of a resurrection of life for our loved ones, there we will see these ones again and reunite, `a better place’. I pray this hope will comfort you in your time of grief and recovery, for your lovely baby boy.
