Light through the darkness |

Light through the darkness

Max’s death was the thunderstorm that came without warning and obscured the sun in our lives. The ensuing darkness gave strength to our weaknesses and fostered company for our loneliness.

But nearly as soon as the tempest raged, we could begin to see the light cast from the candles you lit on the table of community. Through the din, we followed that glow to the banquet of prayers, thoughts and kind words you have lovingly prepared for us.

That feast, along with faith in God ever merciful, has nourished us and given strength that we are using to withstand the mist that falls intermittently now.

Although we are prepared for the healing process to take some time, we know that eventually the sun emerges from behind the clouds, and the rains that have fallen causes life to continue beautifully on.

Mere thanks are not sufficient to repay the support you have given us over the past days. As a family, we are small in number, but no less a part of this extraordinary community that takes care of its own in times of need. All of you are in our thoughts and prayers.

The Marolt family
