Dirge in Marriage and Mirth in Funeral

Just as I was thinking that the week leading up to my wedding couldn't get any harder, I got an e-mail from my friend Mike's sister (some of you may remember him as Crazy Legs, who commented on this blog quite extensively). He killed himself on Monday.

I can't even begin to describe the day that I've had. The pain has been hitting in waves: sometimes, I'm continuing on with my life with a "stiff upper lip." Then sometimes the meaning of the day would hit me and I would become very small.

I've said it a lot today, but: please pray.

Hi Maryanne,
I share your sadness about Mike, and I've left my own thoughts on my blog.
Mourning for the ones we love when they die is the price of loving them. But this is still your special day. I hope knowing Christ and his consolation will help carry you through.
I know that your wedding will still be a special day, a blessing from God, and a joyous time. God be with you, your family, and Chris.
