Just dropping by to say thank you for the comforting words, prayers and gifts you have sent. I am drawing strength from all of you as is my family. Tomorrow will be another hard day as we hold the service to say the formal good-bye to my wonderful son. He will always be in my heart but right now I just feel so raw. Next Sunday will be another rough day as it will be his birthday. The first of many firsts that we will struggle through. I ask you to please keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we continue need the strength they provide.
I want to take a moment to thank Lori Gondelman for taking care of things I just can’t at this time. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org for anything that can’t wait until I return.
I also want to thank the bloggers for keeping the book tours going.
I haven’t picked up a book since this happened but I hope to return next week with some reviews and other posts. Giveaways will be caught up then too. I thank you so much for your patience.
Sunday morning at 3:30 we were awoken by a knock on the door. The police were there to inform us our oldest son Kristopher took his own life. He leaves behind he beautiful daughter Natalie, 2 sisters, a brother, Jeff and I, a grandmother, aunts, uncles, cousins and many friends.
I will not be blogging for a few days and apologize for any commitments I may miss. I ask that you keep us in your prayers. There are no words that can express the devastation that I feel.
Many have already asked if there is anything you can do. The family as set up a memorial fund in his name to help with funeral expenses and for his daughter. If you feel moved to donate you can do so here.
I hope to be back soon.
