“Thank You” Doesn’t Seem Like Enough.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 8:56 pm

It’s true: Merely saying “thank you” seems woefully inadequate, but it’s all I have to offer to those who left condolences, prayers and encouraging thoughts on the occasion of my mother-in-law’s passing. Mrs. Parkway, not a reader of blogs (including this one), was quite taken by the kind words written by so many of you. She thanks you too.

I have to offer a very special “thank you” to The Usual Suspects. They saw that we were well fed, they kept our spirits up with phone calls and visits, and they willingly gave up various Fourth of July festivities to spend the day with us at the funeral parlor. They’re, quite simply, the best.

There is still much to do, but the hard stuff is done, and everyone’s friendship made the hard stuff much less hard.

Again, thank you; thank you – every single one of you.


  1. What else are friends for?

  2. First of all: HUUUUUUUUUUUUGZ!!!!! Please, God, no more hiatuses, or family tragedies (knock wood)…EVER! Do you hear me?! It’s more than I can take. Really. It’s simply no fun without you.

    Leaving a one sentence nothing of a comment on your post made me feel wholly inadequate.

  3. Erica said it above. There just wasn’t any perfect thing to say, but believe us – we were thinking about you and the Mrs. the whole time, and sending the wishes our words couldn’t convey. Glad you’re back.
