"Daddy taught us how to die." -DarrenHappiness and laughter surrounded him throughout his life, even as his path darkened with unrelenting cancer that slowly took his life; however, his story would not be of defeat for even sickness could not change who he was. Kind and loved beyond measure, he brought a steadiness to a world that wavers in doubt, stress, and whys. These pages will witness God's presence in good times and times of deep need and longing. They will speak to those that love, are loved, hope for love, and especially to those living loveless about the gambit of everyday joy, sorrow, and hope through his and his family's ordinary lives.After a shared lifelong love affair with this caring husband, their final journey together ended with this author in despair. Questions flowed, not from lack of faith; they flowed from the fragility of a broken heart. She soon discovered that the old saying is true: "You better watch what you ask for." Bombarding heaven's gate with, "God, why do you give us such deep love when one day we have to say goodbye?" and "Where does that love go?" and "God, where are you in our despair?" and "God, what are we to do?" and many other questions, the answers sometimes arrived gently and quietly, as well as in incredible, even overwhelming ways. The blessings of decades of love, the parting and crushing grief with endless seeking of healing, and especially revelations from our Lord have been told in these pages through the life of a husband, father, and grandfather named Terry, who lives forever with God and in many hearts. Terry found "the Way" to real life. Yes, he showed us how to die, but most importantly, he showed us how to live!
