Hi Sol,

Just wanted to wish you a happy Monday and let you know that we continue to keep you and Kai in our thoughts and prayers daily. Your blog was so touching and I'm sure that everyone who read it experienced most of the emotions that you were feeling at that moment. You are so strong~~ so just continue doing whatever it is that you are doing to get through each day and you will be amazed when you look back 6 months from now that you REALLY made it..! It is not easy being a single parent, but you and Kai have each other and that is the most important thing in life right now. Take each new day as it comes and you will figure it out ~~ one day at a time.

Love and hugs to you both,

Dear Sol,
Thank you for sharing what is in your heart as you get through one day at a time...it is hard to believe that it has already been over a month since Monica went to be with the Lord. I think about her, and you and Kai, so often. Sometimes I find myself thinking, "Oh, I should call Monica about that," before I remember the reality of her passing. Sometimes I lie awake at night thinking about her as quiet tears seep out the corners of my eyes. At her memorial, I was encouraged by your pastor's comment that "It's OK to be mad." I have talked with God about that, too! On the other hand, with her now in heaven, I also find myself wondering what she's doing at a particular moment. Heaven has become more tangible to me. I think about how wonderful it will be to see her again, to give her a great big hug and catch up on all the years apart...These feelings and thoughts are all so strong for me, as "just" her friend, and I can barely imagine the depth of pain and loss you are experiencing as her most intimate partner in life. Along with so many others who have expressed their concern for you, I wish there was some way we could ease your pain and help you to be happy again. I also understand that that is God's job, and I trust him to do it. For now, as your other wise friends have said, keep breathing, focus on Kai, and your important role at your job, and remember that the two of you are daily lifted up in prayer and love by a multitude of people. One day at a time...
Love, peace and healing,

Dear Sol,

It seems after I read your posting, I need a day to gather my thoughts in order to respond. I find myself absorbed in your grief. I know Monica's presence was huge! I pray for you and ask God to embrace you with his loving arms. Thinking of you and Kai.

Love, Gloria

Dear Sol,

I read your updates and my heart goes out to you. I know that losing a spouse is so different from losing a child but I have a lot of the same feelings that you do. I know when the new year was coming, I felt guilty about heading into the new year (as if I had a choice) without Andrew. I felt like I was leaving him behind in 2008. On Wednesday, it will be 7 months since he died...over half a year. It's unbelievable that so much time has passed and I am still here, still living without my son. God gives us just enough for the day. I would get butterflies in my stomach when I would think of being without Andrew for the rest of my life but if I thought of it in daily increments, it felt easier. If not for my other son, Matthew, I don't know that I would get up in the morning. For you, it's Kai. He needs you. He is your reason to wake up in the morning. I can't imagine how hard it is to be a single parent now, but know that we are praying for you both. You are in our thoughts often. I wish there was something I could do to make it all better but I guess I'll have to leave that up to God. I know that the only real better is the day that Jesus comes back and takes us all home. Then we can be whole families again. :)
Love You both.

    Our hearts are saddened by Monica’s passing. It’s difficult times like these I just don’t know what to say,
    other than Peggy and I will continue to pray for you and your family.
