6 months TODAY

We thought about sending an email to our list, but then - y0u probably get too many anyway, and I have nothing new to say. I'd love to have more emails from you though.

Kara has enrolled at Dalhausie University in Halifax and we are planning to fly out on Thursday. Alayna went to Greece and is coming back early - Thursday afternoon - but not on time to see Kara off at the airport. Justin is working at Subway on Corydon Ave.

Martha shared on her blog of the agony and pain that is still a daily companion. I spoke to someone who said that the new normal might set in soon. That got me thinking - I'd rather lose 2 arms and 2 legs than a daughter. The pain of that loss would go with me for the rest of my life. How much more pain is in the loss of a daughter and friend.

After Halifax we go to Salt Lake City for Renee's friend Jacqui's wedding. Back in Winnipeg for a while and Toronto for some business, then to PA for October 10 - 12, 2008 for a SilentGrief conference.

At the same time I am trying to find an Executive Assistant that can help me set up the new R&D shop for Innovaat at St Adolphe, purchase property, I need to renovate/upgrade the property, finish the development of the Biomass Energy System, check up in Morris, and Steinbach once a week, write blogs.....

Thanks, Mark, for that box of books on grieving. They look like they could have a very positive impact. I just need to find out if my brain works well enough actually read a book from cover to cover.


  1. Hi Dueck's,

    I've been thinking about you lately. Just wanted to let you know that your family is in my prayers.

    Love, Kyle

  2. If tears could build a stairway, and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring her home again.

    Thanks for your love and prayers.

    maybe there are more of us out here who keep in touch with your grief journey thru this blog than you realize. I remember you, I pray for you, I read your words & try to learn about the grieving process. Whatever I can learn & pass along is credit to sufferers like you. We just buried a 17 yr old grad from our yth grp (drowning accident) & I remember you & Rog & Anita & wonder if there is a shortcut, surefire way to heal. For what it is worth, we do hear, care & pray. God is still God & HE is still faithful. really Connie H
