One year ago today, my brother-in-law passed away. Loren did not give his last breaths to pancreatic cancer; he gave them to his family as he left them to be with his Maker.
As I reflect on that time, sadness and sweetness fill my heart. It was unimaginable that Loren was having to leave us. He was such a light. Full of good cheer, a fantastic sense of humour, a solid faith and a generous spirit, Loren brightened the world for those of us who had the chance to love him. Even in dying, Loren continued to be that light. He taught me how to finish well.
I miss you, Loren. A lot. It warms my heart to see you in your beautiful daughters.
