"You know it's nothing new, bad news never had good timing..."- John Mayer
We are all in shock and struggling to process the turn of events. Two weeks ago we were preparing for this exact news, but after his swift recovery we let our guards down and are therefore even more heartbroken at the loss.
Today has been a frenzy of making arrangements. Changing flights. Booking car rentals. Making reservations for the dogs. Flying home in an emergency situation is an expat’s worst nightmare. I just want to be home and never has that felt more far away. As much as modern technology helps us stay connected, nothing can substitute for the comfort of a hug or just the peace of being in the presence of those who feel your pain.
I’ll be bringing my computer to the States as I visit for the next 3 weeks, and I will try to update as often as I can. For now, I’d really appreciate any prayers that you can spare for our grieving family, and for smooth travel as we all make our way to Missouri in the next few days. Thank you, friends.
