I am deeply moved and honored by your personal poem, in response to mine. I am also saddened that you have lost TWO daughters!
Certainly, a father's grief is as great as a mother's, and I send hugs to you, no matter whether it was recent, or long ago, for the loss always remains - a hole in one's life. Sometimes that empty place flares up like a gaping wound, and other times heals for a while. Certainly, time helps, but, contrary to common belief, time does not heal all things.
Your comforting and kind words have meant so much to me! I sent everyone an e-mail, who responded to that poem, with heartfelt thanks, but to you, I send a special one - your kindness, empathy, and thoughtfulness has meant a GREAT deal to me. Far beyond explanation!
I have a darling loving husband who means the world to me, and all of the responses here have amazed him as well.
Again, thanks from the bottom of my heart.
