“Maddi, the Maddi I know, has been struggling her whole life, but struggling the most since this past summer. Depression is real. She hid it well, not from us. I would sleep with her, just to know she would wake up in the morning. I couldn't save her . She is no longer sad. We will let everyone know the service information as soon as we do."
"Thank you Paul Tennant for the right words "
"Where does one go when the darkness surrounds you.
When a part of your world crumbles around you.
O Lord where art thou
When the strength inside you folds and your emotions spill freely.
A bright star in your sky is gone.
O God why
Was there a purpose. There must have been a reason. The pain and suffering just doesn't seem fair. The light that was given is so quickly taken away. How are we to go on.
We will go on. We will persevere. The light that was so plainly seen but now gone is in us all. The memory lives on in each of us that was touched and blessed to have had it in our lives.
We will go on TOGETHER. We will be there for one and other. We will remind each other of that light when the darkness sinks in. We will share the blessing of that light to those around us.
Dear Father here us now. Help us in this time. Strengthen us to strengthen one and other. Guide us through this valley. Until we meet again.
Always here, always here."
