    I've kept you in my prayers since you told us about your wife. Sorry about your father. Hang in there, brother.

    Four lines hardly constitutes a rant, and even if it was, I don't think anyone would begrudge you. I lost many in a short period a few years back, and can appreciate how tough it is. Best thoughts, keep paddling.

    Will do, man. I can't imagine now tough things are for you right now. Stay strong.

    And you sure don't have to apologize. We've all lost somebody. If anything, your sharing your story with us reminds us to appreciate our own loved ones, both those gone and those still with us, and that can't be a bad thing.

    I consider the people on this forum to be friends, maybe even family. We're here for you. Life can seem terrible at times but know that you have the ability to get through those times and we'll be here to lend an ear when you need to talk.

    I'm so sorry sixgun. How terrible to lose either of them. You and your family will be in my prayers that God will help you find some peace in your life.

    You continue to be in our prayers. May the good Lord give you the strength to overcome this trial. Don't you dare worry about this "rant", you are entitled.

    A Psalm from David:

    How long, Lord ? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me? How long must I wrestle with my thoughts and day after day have sorrow in my heart? How long will my enemy triumph over me? Look on me and answer, Lord my God. Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death, and my enemy will say, “I have overcome him,” and my foes will rejoice when I fall. But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation. I will sing the Lord ’s praise, for he has been good to me. (Psalm 13:1-6 NIV)

    Sixgun, sorry for your loss. I've read somewhere that God doesn't burden a person with a struggle or an obstacle that he can't handle. In other words, we are supposed to be strong enough to handle anything that comes our way! So know that you have the strength to survive this current period. Plus, you have your Guardian Angels keeping an eye over you. You can get through this!

    An unimaginable burden. I hope you can somehow seek and find some manner of peace in The Lord. You and your family will be in my prayers. If there's anything I can do to help you in any way, please feel free to PM me.

    Sixgun,

    <religious talk on>
    ...
    <religious talk off>

    Actually, you probably you don't need that right now, not to mention forum rules. I *do* have stuff to say; PM me if/when you're interested.

    But for now, let me tell you that 1) I can't imagine the hurt you're going through; 2) I care; and 3) I will certainly be praying. And if you'll tolerate a little bit of religious talk, the one I'm praying to has been through pretty rough times himself, he understands, he cares, and he offers comfort.

    Sad for your losses...
