These past eight weeks have forced me to face the reality that I had to bid farewell not only once but twice.
My two closest friends and brothers’ loss has been tough to grasp.
It’s hard for me to accept they are no longer here, yet, it brings comfort knowing our Heavenly Father will embrace their spirits with an infinite amount of love and peace more significant than what I could give them on Earth Earth.
My brothers, Bob and Don, were irreplaceable figures in my life. With their passing, a deep void remains that will never be filled.
But I take solace in knowing they are now reunited on the football field of heaven, where they will always be commemorated as members of its stellar team.
It’s comforting knowing that their companionship will continue through memories even though it is heartbreaking having to say goodbye twice so quickly.
