My best friend, Kathy Buchanan, lost her husband suddenly 12 weeks ago in a tragic accident. They were scheduled to move the morning after he was killed to a new town for Sean’s new job, as they finished building their dream home. Instead, my precious friend, Kathy, had to go home from the accident scene to tell their five children (ages 6-15) that they no longer had a daddy... that they were no longer moving into their dream home... that their lives were changed forever. There are no words for the void Sean has left.... no words for the gut punch that grief is... no words for how horrific life feels right now For his two adopted boys from Burundi, this is the second time they have lost their father - first their birth father, and now Sean. It’s unimaginable. Kathy has lost her person... her confidante, the daddy to her kids, and is left to fumble forward. I would love for her to receive some letters of encouragement... reminders that she is strong even though she may not feel it or see it ... letters acknowledging the darkness of this time... anything that helps my friend be seen and encouraged. She is a warrior, but she is in deep grief and her biggest cheerleader has been taken away from her. I want her to know many are cheering her on . Thank you, G. I love you. Amy
