My friend...

I am so sad for the loss you face. Too soon are loved ones gone and too brief is our time here together. Your dad left his mark on us all through the strength of character he instilled in you. I think I only met him once, but I feel I have known him for years through you.

I have walked a path similar to the one you are on. I never faced such a decision as yours, though, as my mom went on to be with my dad before my brother and I could be called upon to make a choice. I am thankful for that. But I believe that difficult tasks often fall to those best suited to manage them and I am convinced that you will make the right choices during this time. I am not sure I would have had the strength to do the right thing in your situation. I see mercy in this for me and strength in you as you are cast in this role.

You are a good man and quite possibly the most intelligent person I have ever known. You and I have disagreed on some things over the years, but all good friends have. In this time of heartbreak and pain, be assured that those who know you are there for you and that you do not face this alone.

I love you and sincerely hope for blessings on your life. You have certainly blessed my life in MANY ways.
