A Dedication

This is another special song that is really carrying me along at the moment. It is Yesterdays by the group Switchfoot. They have a song for every part of my loss of Dad. One about never having hurt so bad and learning to crawl, to breathe again, and depend on God and one about how in 24 hours everything can change and this one. I love this one so much because it speaks to how difficult it is to let someone go, but how at the same time you know they are free. And they want you to keep living. I want to dedicate this post to my friend, Elizabeth, and her family at the passing of her Uncle Michael. He passed away yesterday after his own battle with pancreatic cancer. He fought for close to two years - amazing when you realize that 95% of pancreatic cancer patients die within a year of diagnosis. My dad lived 4 months, someone else I heard of lived 2 months, another lived just 8 weeks. My thoughts and prayers are with Elizabeth and her family. Michael leaves behind an 11 year old daughter. I urge anyone who reads this to please say a prayer for them.
