My sweet friend Tammy lost her husband Blaine last week. Though he'd had a scare 2 years before with a heart condition, his death came as a shock.
I'm so proud of her. She is holding up amazingly well, and her faith in the Lord and the Plan of Salvation is keeping her afloat in this difficult time. I'd love to be able to go down for the funeral, but I can't swing it right now. I hope she knows how much I love her and want to comfort her.
Thank goodness she has her dear boys. They are such a blessing to her. This is the letter that she wrote to them, and posted on her blog, a few days after she lost her husband and their dad.
Life is sometimes so tragic, and yet so sweet. I guess that's the true meaning of bittersweet.
