Posted on behalf of Mari

Peace and Love


  1. I am so very sorry, Mari. My heart aches for you as you learn to take your first few breaths without Gag's physical presence next to you. Just as a new baby screams its way into this world after taking its first breath, I know there are parts of this new world that are making you scream out for the shock of it, the brutality of being forced into a world filled with unknowns. But I have to honestly say that I am grateful that Gag is without pain, no longer bravely fighting to give you and the boys more moments, no longer facing uncontrolled pain along with the anguish of knowing that he was leaving you behind.

    May God comfort your soul and protect your heart as you find your way in this new world. May He cover you with His love and guidance, and may He shower you with strength as you learn to first crawl, then walk, and one day run toward peace and joy, renewed by the love that lives inside your heart and mind.

    May God bless you and keep you.

  2. I'm so sorry to read this - I saw your blog had a new item in my google reader, and felt with a heavy heart that it must be this sad news.

    He is at peace now, and his pain and suffering is over. It will be very tough for you and your boys, but you will find peace again. For now, be kind to yourself and take it one day at a time.

    God's blessings on you and your family, you're in my prayers.

  3. May God's love hold you, comfort you and guide you through this time. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Sue G said it perfectly.

  4. OMG...Marin jan, I just sent you an email a few minutes ago... sooo sorry

  5. Like Spud, I saw the new post and with a heavy heart, just knew. There are no words that can possibly fill the void you must feel at this moment, but know that Gag was loved by many all over the world. I'm sure this made his transition much easier. He is an angel now and will be with you and the boys in a new form.

    This is a fraglie time, Mari. Be gentle with yourself.

    With much love and compassion, Liz xoxo

  6. What has been said by all the others holds true for me. I hold you and your family in my thoughts and meditations. May Heavens rejoicing in their newest of angels offer some comfort for your heart.

    Peace my cyberfriend. May you find peace in your family in your coming days.


  7. OH MY GOD, I am so sorry, i know it is very very hard and havy for you. The only way you can get some peace is by thinking that he is not in pain and you did everything and anything that you could of done for him. Think about your two boys that they need you more then anything now. We will alway remember him as a very good father, freind, and humen beeing.

    May GOD give you and your family peace. Always on my mind and heart preying for you and your family
