    Thank you for your prayers. They are being answered. I grew up five miles from the Darlington Raceway and trained heavily on the Dan Ryan Expressway in Chicago. Michigan is relaxing to drive in!

    My ‘guilt’ is more that I built a life 800 miles away, and wasn’t there to intervene for them in ways they needed. Where I work now, there is no bereavement pay, but a different job recently that is a different situation. It is a venture that if it takes off will allow me to manage my time better, and I may be able to get more time off without affecting my income.

    That fact is more real to me. I will reach out to those around me more, hoping that others will reach out to my mom and sister.

    Prayers for your family. I'm sorry about your loss. Your Dad sounded like a great man. You are truly blessed to have a Dad like that.

    Alright, everybody, thank you for praying. I’ve said goodbye to my mother, we are cleaning the house that we were loaned, and hoping to catch a good sleep before the drive tomorrow. If you’re willing, please pray us in!

    Prayers continue for you and your family.

    Once you're home, take time to grieve.

    Arrived home safely. 16 hours instead of the 14 we expected. Flat tire, accidents that stopped traffic, construction, even a rockslide that caused a detour. But we are home, safe and sound. Thanks all for praying for me through this. Your prayers were heard and answered.
