Having just lost my own father last year I easily feel their pain!
Two other Catholic homeschooling moms and myself are heading to their house this afternoon to clean the house and put food in their fridge/freezer for when they return this weekend. We can't be in PA to support them so we are feeling this will be a nice gesture here at home.
I am truly blessed to have a great network of friends. Although the 4 of us don't get to spend a lot of time together due to our separate busy schedules and the distance of where we live, it is reassuring to know we are always there for each other in the long run.
