Andrew's father died suddenly yesterday morning.

Yes, it was a huge shock. Yes, it sucks a lot. It's really hard on the whole family.

We were down in NJ visiting my dad when we first got the call from the Smiths, so we rushed to pack everything back up and start driving. My dad also drove up, and it was a big help to have him around yesterday and this morning, since he wasn't as closely involved, and could stay a lot more calm.

There will be a memorial service, probably next weekend or so. After that... no one knows what's next. We'll try to continue our lives as best as we can.

Then Job arose and tore his robe and shaved his head, and he fell to the ground and worshiped.
He said,
"Naked I came from my mother's womb,
And naked I shall return there
The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away.
Blessed be the name of the LORD."
- Job 1:20-21
