Grief two years 4 months later.


In the early stages of grief we barely care about anything because the worst has happened. We walk in darkness. Eventually, if we believe, that empty hole around our heart is filled with the Presence of our beloved and we fill with Love again! But grief is forever (as is our love) and every so often we have a night where we walk in darkness and dream of abandonment and loss. You wake up shaken and full of doubt. That is when we need Psalm 23 the most. God is like a good shepherd who provides and cares for His sheep. Patricia Bow‘s words provide the solass I need, ” We ask nothing; we have all!” Yes we have need of nothing because our shepherd provides everything. We dwell in Love in the House of the Lord forever our cup runneth over!

About thebows99krug

Hi, I am Eric, a retired librarian. I was born in St. Michael's Hospital, Toronto and raised in the downtown area north of the Art Gallery, south of the University of Toronto. I went to Orde Street Public School, Harbord C.I., University College at the UofT and the UofT's Faculty of Library and Information Science. I meet my wife Patricia at FLIS; our first date was on November 15, 1968. We were engaged February 14, 1969 and married on June 21, 1969. Our family includes son, James; daughter-in-law, Erin; (both writers), grand-daughters, Vivian and Eleanor; and Sonic, a very friendly ginger tabby. My beloved wife died January 7, 2017 and our 19 year old cat Pooka died January 8, 2017. I would like to hear from any other class of '63 alumni of Harbord C.I. and class of '67 alumni of UofT's University College.
