    I can still see the three us on the back porch of Mrs. Barton’s portable. A big heart shaped box in one lap and an oversized valentine in the other. You had the capacity to love then, and Carla received your gift for too few years.
    Thank you for the gift of your words. They are a powerful tool for your healing and God’s teaching.

    Dear Micheal,
    I do not know your exact pain, but I have my own. I agree that sometimes living is the hardest thing we can be asked to do. I do hope that in Linen you will see Carla and she will bring the color back to your life. Daddy’s are so very important to little girls and you are her world. Your writing speaks to my heart and I thank you for sharing.
    Much love, Frankie McGinnis

    Michael, I lost my husband after only 22 months of marriage. He was 23 and I was 22. I dreamed about him last night and he has been on my mind all day. I was so glad that I stumbled across your blog. I have often thought of keeping a journal because it would probably be very cathardic. I feel that now I am ready to pour my soul out on paper. I’m not as brave as you were. I’m not sure why I have waited so long, but I’m sure I want to do it now. Would you believe that my Johnnie has been dead for 40 years? Yes, you read it right. I have been married for 33 years, to a Michael. We have a 32 year old daughter and a 3 year old granddaughter. My life is good and God has blessed me more than I could ever ask. But, there’s not a day that goes by that I don’t feel that big hole still in my heart. I so hope that you will find someone whom you love and who loves you and Linen. I’m sure Carla would want that – just as I know Johnnie wanted me to go on to a good life.
