Chelsee, Thank you for always being real and telling your story just like it is.  I want to encourage you that you will get through your grieving and you will be refreshed and you will have joy in your step and passion in your smile.  I lost my dad when I was 28 and I was in grad school.  I thought I was doing well only for it to hit me like a brick several months after he died.  I just lost my mom a couple of months ago, she was 98, and the grief was just as real in her loss as it was for my dad.  But even in the darkness God's faithfulness never left, even when I shook my fist and asked why and got no answer.  He's big enough for that. "He knows how we are formed, He remembers that we are dust." Psalm 103:14.  He will restore you and He will grant you fullness in your life.  Another verse says, "I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living." Psalm 27:13  And finally, Psalm 30:5 promises that "weeping may remain for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning."  I will pray that you find your morning, and in the morning light that you spirit again rejoices.  Much love,
Vicki Gabriel

Chelsee,

I have been praying for you all day...Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted!  You will have joy again..and will have it abundantly!  This is one of God's promises that we can stand firm on!  We some how have to endure the sadness and the grief before we can embrace the joy and the hope of the new day!  Grief is a trial, a  painful circumstance allowed by God to grow us stronger and draw us nearer to Him.  He desires us in our grief to get to a place where we are on our knees before Him, telling Him what we need, to allow others to pray for us, to help carry our burden of grief.  He desires to love us through our sorrow to show us the Joy of each new day, a day of Hope and Living!  Thank you for sharing your burden of grief with us, so we can support you in prayer!  You are wise, faithful and strong!  Lean on God, allow Him to draw you near, feel His mighty presence and be comforted, day by day, moment by moment,..your are His beloved and loved by so many!

Blessings,

Vicki

Your writing uplift me.  We cherish your notes.  We all miss those dear to us.  My Daddy has been gone 20+ years anad I think of him everyday, same with my mom.  I just remember the good times.  That keeps me going and my faith.  We all have been taught, each day is a GIFT and it is.

Let go and let God.

Blessing to you and your family.

Chelsee, I am so sorry that you are going through this. I always hear people say "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger" and I think to a point that is true and to a point it isn't. We all deal with grief in different ways and I know somehow someway you will move on and never forget your dad. We never forget the ones we love!!!! My mom lost her mom 6 years ago unexpectedly and there isn't a day that goes by that my mom doesn't think about her mom and miss her mom and that is so normal. I will continue to pray for you and your family!! God Bless!!!! :) :)

Chelsee,
Each day with your dad was a special gift.  He taught you so much about life, commitment and love.  He lives on through your presence. 
He is spending his own special time with Harper right now.  For some reason, we may never understand, it was more important for him to help Harper arrive on this earth safe and sound.  I am sure he will be making sure the delivery goes well.  He is also comforting your first baby and keeping him warm.  Your dad knew you, Melissa and your mom would be OK.  He did his job well.
His strength, love and expectations will keep you and your family protected.  I know this for a fact, as I call on my dad regularly.  I wish you could have meet him and I know your dad and mine are sharing a beer in Heaven and discussing the pros and cons of the Dallas Cowboys.  He will be there when you need him.  
Lean on John and the other people who are close to you.  Your dad is a part of you.   We will not make sense out of the past but we can embrace everyday of our future.  Live it to the fullest, hug your husband and your babies and hold them close.   Give thanks for each day we have and live it like your dad would.  No greater honor can we give to our parents than to be the girl they knew we would become.  
Love you,Nancy (Nana)

Thank you Chelsee, for sharing this beautiful moment.  I had to laugh with the crazy windchime cuz they always remind me of grandma neenie too.  I have become a bit of a bird watcher, and sure wish I had one of her bird books.  I think I left them all at the house after cleaning up, but they've disappeared. O Well!  Peace and joy is in letting go, and letting come, into the great mysteries and beauty of life.

I'm so glad you got to share this mystical experience with your dad and neenie.

love,

I'll be thinking about your entire family during this difficult time.  Although I have never met any of you I feel like I know you from all the wonderful things I have been told by Kelly and Kristy.  I will continue to pray for all of you as you go through the next couple days and the months ahead.  Keep your memories of your dad close at heart and he will be with you always. It is never easy to loose a loved one but take comfort in knowing that he is no longer suffering and is pain free. You now have a special guardian angel watching over you every minute, every hour, every day.


Sending you love and prayers from southern Maryland.

Chelsee,

Caroline and I were praying for your family this weekend.  I will pray for an incredible celebration of your dad's life at 2:00 tomorrow.  May you all feel God's presence and love tomorrow as you remember your daddy and know that he is watching over you until you meet again!

Will you please tell Melissa that I told Dr. Ross and a couple of the staff about your Daddy today when I was in her "old" office.  They send their love to both of you!

Chelsee,
Alex, Megan and I have all prayed for you and your family.  It is so hard to tell a beloved Daddy goodbye.  My own Dad passed away at 64 when Alex was just a baby.  Your faith and strength will get you through.  Many more prayers are coming your way this week and in the difficult weeks ahead.
We love you!The Kellys

Chelsea we have know y'all for many years. Not closely. But our hearts have crossed forever. You have touched my whole family more than you will ever know. You and your family such an inspiration for everyone especially me. Love y'all even though we weren't that close. You have touched us more than you will ever know. And that's what god wants us to do. Be disciples to others. And that's what you and your family have been. May god continue to work through y'all. I'm so humbled by y'all's faithfulness and strength. God bless. .

Thank you Chelsee, for sharing this beautiful moment.  I had to laugh with the crazy windchime cuz they always remind me of grandma neenie too.  I have become a bit of a bird watcher, and sure wish I had one of her bird books.  I think I left them all at the house after cleaning up, but they've disappeared. O Well!  Peace and joy is in letting go, and letting come, into the great mysteries and beauty of life.
