A thousand thank you’s is still not nearly enough
How can a wife show love and gratitude for the respect, appreciation and friendship her husband has received in his life and which has been conveyed even after his death, through good wishes, prayers, cards, emails and messages?
How can I crystallise what your kindness has done for me and for my family?
A writer uses words, but I’m bereft of words.
I have discovered somethings new about my husband in his passing: he held deep friendship with some he knew only in passing, and received tremendous respect from colleagues years beyond their working together. He was a good man and I was not the only one who knew it!
Yes, Alan was a fine and godly man. But he was also a friend to so very many people I may never have the pleasure to meet.
So I say this to those who valued Alan the way that I valued Alan: Thank you for sharing your love of him with me in this time of his departure. It will stay with me to share with his children and his children’s children.
Thank you. And you will always have a friend in me:)
Much, much love to all.
