Waiting No More

My father died on Good Friday morning.His funeral yesterday was a wonderful celebration of a long life well lived. I was intensely proud to be one of Bill Martin's daughters. He touched many lives in one way or another and we three Martin girls aren't the only ones missing him today.

    1. Thank you, Donna. Letting go of one's last parent hurts, I've discovered, even when it is a blessed relief of suffering. Your prayers are much appreciated.
