The Blog Ness Monster: Coming up for air from the murky depths of parenthood...
Chris H died at 3:15 this afternoon.
Dag lieve jongen. You will be sorely missed by all of us who had the pleasure of knowing you!
Oh, Betsy, I'm so, so sorry to hear this.Love to you and your family.
No man is an island,Entire of itself.Each is a piece of the continent,A part of the main.If a clod be washed away by the sea,Europe is the less.As well as if a promontory were.As well as if a manner of thine ownOr of thine friend's were.Each man's death diminishes me,For I am involved in mankind.--John DonneI'm sorry, Betsy. He sounds like a wonderful person.
Thanks guys!Laurie, that poem is beautiful! Funny, because I've always heard the "No man is an island" fragment but not the rest of the poem-- it's wonderful, thanks!
Oops, "manor," not "manner."Glad you liked it, there's more--just pasted part of the poem.
He does sound like a wonderful person; I am so sorry to hear this news.
Oh, I'm so sorry!!Love to all of you.
Such sad news. You're in my thoughts...
I'm sorry about your friend, Betsy
Thanks Astrid, Christina and Stacey! I really appreciate your comments!
My sympathies and thoughts are with you.
Hi Betsy,I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. I hope he went peacefully without too much pain after the long battle he's been fighting. I hope your family can find some consolation in the wonderful memories you share together of Chris!
