I am so sorrowful. We learned today that the husband of Evan’s 1st grade teacher died very unexpectedly on Friday. As far as we know, he was not ill. He was 50. It is stunning. It sinks in and it makes me still. I cannot imagine her loss. The sheer suddenness. It has to feel unreal. Shock. I can’t get my brain wrapped around it. It is hard to breathe. The teacher’s name is Anne. She is a sweet, soft-spoken and kind-hearted woman. She was VERY patient with Evan last year. I will pray for Patrick’s soul. May our Lord receive him into His loving arms. May Anne feel God’s arms wrap around her. I will pray for her peace. I will carry her sorrow in my heart, too.
