Just a year ago – when our lovely daughter in law – Ju – died – tributes began to pour in – wonderful messages – recalling so many beautiful memories – expressing thankfulness for the wonderful and kind person she was.
Today – I want to post a tribute – a special tribute to our son – who has walked through this past year with such strength and grace.
A Tribute – to Steve
He has not only carried his own grief – but supported his sons in their grief too – all the time holding on to his faith – even when there was so much he didn’t understand.
It has been both a pain – and a joy – to walk alongside him – to see his maturity – to witness both his vulnerability – and his strength – to watch as he processed what this all meant for the future of himself and his boys – and to see him take care and control – ‘ coming out of the fog of grief’ – as he voiced it – into an acceptance of what life now looked like.
I am proud today – proud of the man he is – as he bravely walks on alone – never forgetting – yet moving forward – unafraid of the future – secure in who he is – and secure in the God he loves and follows.
I pay tribute to our grandsons too – who have also shown strength – and grace – who talk often and with love of their mum – who are secure in their fathers love for them – and who are supported by so many – yet have walked this past year with their own grief – and loss – with a maturity beyond their years.
I am proud of you all – and dedicate this post to you – with love
