Dear Mom,

Mostly, I miss you and trying to figure out how I will live the rest of my life without you. But you were right, you said if i 'don't use this opportunity to break this whole spell now then i never will'. So the storm really was the golden opportunity. It was hard. I had to let go. But i did it! I broke the spell mom! "Sometimes God has to give us disasters in order to point us in the correct direction." I get it now! You were offering me an invitation to my future. So with each step forward, I envision releasing all of the hurt, guilt, and sorrow of my life, as it dissolves behind me. My future is now—and tho they have since moved on without me .. a warm little body entered my world, at 7 pounds 8 ounces .. a little baby boy, my grandson, Draco Thomas Ary .. your great-grandson (he got those outfits btw -thank you!) was born at 5:42pm on April 7th, 2019. Serena and Logan and i were able to visit him in the hospital and see him a couple hours after he arrived. In some ways, I've never felt so whole, or proud, or so free. Mom you were a wonderful loving mother and even more of an amazing loving grandma, no matter where you were! So no matter where I am, i too can be a wonderful amazing loving dad, grandpa and son, because I know you are still close and are cheering me on. My feelings of loss have morphed into something else altogether: a deep sense of gratitude. I recognize my life had to unfold exactly as it has for me to have clear eyes and full heart to welcome this fresh start, my new beginning in life! I choose to honor what you wanted for me, besides cultivating myself is the best antidote for my grief. You want the best for me and care about everything I'm going thru. You love me without condition. 'Did you ever know that you're my hero? And everything I would like to be'. I love you and i appreciate you more than i could ever express. You are the wind beneath my wings!

So fly high Mom, I've got it all right here in my heart. Love Always, Clint

This morning I was very depressed, from it being the first Easter not having my wife with me celebrating the most important day in our faith; Resurrection Sunday.

She loved you all immensely! She was always excited about spending time with family, especially holidays. But something else that she cared very deeply about is your salvation. Dianne and I prayed everyday for the salvation of our loved ones. And today, I heard a great sermon at church that helped bring joy back into my soul even through this rollercoaster ride with greif.

There are two ways of figuring out how to live life: Like God wants you to; read the bible join a church, hear the word preached and taught and be around those people to see how they live it out.. Or on your own. But you cannot do it on your own and just doing what you think is the right way to live. This is actually rejecting Christ as Lord. That would be like telling the local police that stealing is ok because you're hungry. (You can probably see where rejecting the local authorities might get you).

After we become saved, however, the whole rest of our life should be about becoming more like Christ. You can't just say I believe in God and then live life like you see fit. That is rejecting Christ. If that was the case, why would he still need to die on the cross? You don't have to be part of church to be saved, but I don't see how you wouldn't want to be with God's family if you are truly saved.

I would certainly answer any questions. I love you all and this really is the most important decision of your lives. I hope you understand. I certainly would not get thru what I am going thru without my savior and my church family!

I'm sorry if this seems unsentimental, but this is the truth and i believe it matters to her so much that it's right here on this page of her book.So please, just consider what I've said here. She wants to see all of you in heaven some day, same as me. And I'm saying all of this because I love you too, Doug
