Post Script

I know this blog is a farm blog, but first and foremost it is a story of our days in our land of milk and honey. I am not intending the posts to be all inclusive as a thank you forum, for then I wouldn't be able to be free to throw out my thoughts as I process. I guess it is kind of scary to be transparent, but writing helps me keep moving and I appreciate so many of you for walking with me.

Never did I imagine that this forum would connect me to so many dear friends. You are so precious to me. Thank you for sharing our hurt and our laughter. Your prayers are helping to bear our burden and I am experiencing a peace that passes understanding right now.

I know I will never be able to adequately express my gratitude to this beloved community, our home. Home.

But I do hope you have an inkling that we are deeply, deeply thankful to all of you. You are precious to us.

And even in the middle of the horrible season, we are home and that is a relief.

Hi Ginger, you don't know me and probably never will. My family and I attended your church today while visiting my wife's aunt over the weekend. The news of your beloved husband's passing weighed heavy on your Pastor and the Body today during worship. My wife and I were simply blown away by the outpouring of love and mercy from your church family. In short, although we never met your husband Phil, we were deeply touched and burdened by your suffering. I was especially impacted by the stories told by the Pastor about Phil and your family. On the long ride back to Maryland today, our family talked quite a bit about what was important, and what was not, in this life. Needless to say, here I am at midnight Googling information about your family and feeling very saddened by this terrible loss. My family, and our church family, will lift you all up this week in prayer. May God pour out His abundent Grace upon you all.

Sincerely, John Gaffe' and family
