At that same time that he passed, my sister and brother-in-law were planning their wedding.
How are you supposed to plan a wedding and a funeral at the same time?
Losing a loved one seems to suck all of the joy out of life, and it’s hard to put on a “happy” face when it seems like life will never be the same again.
Life was a painful blur for us all, with waves of grief overwhelming my family and me at the oddest and most inopportune times. Other times, it is just a worse numbness and “void” that you cannot directly access. Just a huge sense that you are deeply missing someone who should be there with you.
We somehow got through that season as we relied on God’s supernatural strength and comfort. And my sister and brother-in-law’s wedding was beautifully done. They even found some amazing ways to commemorate my Dad and other family members who were no longer with us into their special day.
