5 months ago my youngest brother, Jeremy, was diagnosed with Blastic Mantle Cell Lymphoma. Tonight our family gathered together to surround Jeremy, hold him, tell him we love him, to say goodbye and to prepare ourselves to let him go. Heart wrenching day. Profound day. Day filled with tears, deep painful grieving, and moments of joy in remembering what an amazing impact Jeremy’s life has had. Anguish and beauty. And in the midst of it all, God’s sweet presence is clearly with us. We anticipate saying our final goodbyes tomorrow.
