ROW80 December 15


I cannot write a check-in today.  My brother checked into hospice last Wednesday, and passed away this morning.  I apologize, and will catch up as I can.  Please send some thoughts and, if so inclined, prayers to his family.

Also, please visit and support the other ROWers during these last few days of Round 4.  You can find them here.




  1. Dear Elizabeth. Thank you for posting even so briefly. Know that many ROW80 colleagues will be thinking of you and this time of reflection and letting go. Best, Beth

    • Thank you for your thoughts, Beth. It has been rough, but my brother had a wonderful, if short, life. It helps somewhat to remember that.

  2. Prayers for you all ❤

    • Thank you,Skye, for the prayers. He and his wife raised amazing kids, and they are quite a legacy.

  3. I’m so sorry for your loss. You and yours are in my thoughts and prayers.

    • Thank you, John. I know the whole family appreciates your thoughts and prayers.

  4. I’m so sorry. Sending hugs and keeping all of you in our thoughts and prayers.

  5. I’m so sorry. You’re all in my prayers.

  6. So sorry. *hugs*

  7. Oh, my goodness, you certainly do not need to apologize! Family always comes first. I will be praying that the family finds peace at this difficult time – always made worse when loses happen around the holidays. Take care of yourself.

  8. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

  9. I’m so sorry for your loss, and see our small community is unanimous in assuring you there’s no need for apology.

  10. Take all the time you need. Thinking of you and your family. xx

  11. Elizabeth,

    I grieve with you. This is certainly not a time to worry about us. I will pop around to your sponsor people, until you are ready and able.

    Holding you and yours warmly in my thoughts, and sending you much love!.

  12. No apologies necessary, Elizabeth. I cannot even conceive of the kind of loss you are feeling right now. May all that his and your family be surrounded soon with a sense of peace… As Shan said, I can also stop over and visit your sponsor people.

    Much love and comfort come your way.

  13. So sorry, Elizabeth. May the God of All Comfort hold you and your family close.

  14. […] ROW80 December 15 […]
