As I writer and lover of language, I believe that words are powerful, but never in my life have words seemed so inadequate. I wish that I could better convey my emotions. Maybe it’s just too raw right now.
On February 2nd, my dear brother-in-law succumbed to his battle with Cystic Fibrosis and passed peacefully at 10:15 pm. He was 25. My husband and I were able to fly home to be with Ben and our family members in his final hours. The funeral will take place tomorrow.
I’ll be using this time to be with family and don’t plan on blogging much, if at all. You’ve been so kind as I’ve shared Ben’s ups and downs, so it was important to me to tell you the news of his death.
If you feel compelled to do something in Ben’s honor, I ask that you consider making a donation to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
