I am so sorry for your loss.
When day comes we step out of the shade,
aflame and unafraid
The new dawn blooms as we free it
For there is always light,
if only we're brave enough to see it
If only we're brave enough to be it

My earthly self wonders how you recover from this. Such an unimaginable loss. I'm sorry for you and yours.

Thank you for your sympathetic and kind words. We had the funeral and burial in Nephi, Utah on Saturday.  My son and his wife are back at their home in Texas. I imagine it was heartbreaking to leave their babies here. They'll be back in a few years. Hopefully to stay.

It was surreal to go back into work on Monday and greet all of school children as they came into the building. That's my normal routine, and it's always been a fantastic way to start the day. This time, they all seemed so...remote, and my "Good Morning" greetings sounded robotic. It often seems that I'm watching myself from a third-person point of view. Things don't seem fully real, as if this past month was a tragic chapter in a novel. I know this will get better. It was similar when my dad died. Time heals. I just don't want it to go too fast.

Still thinking of you & your family, Roper, hoping the Holy Ghost will surround all of you with comfort. 🙏

We had the funeral and burial in Nephi, Utah on Saturday.  My son and his wife are back at their home in Texas. I imagine it was heartbreaking to leave their babies here.

And yet, our testimony of the eternal family as a manifestation of God’s love for all His children tells us that when we bury our loved ones, we are not “leaving them,” but letting them go back to be with Heavenly Father until we meet again. Maybe it is like taking them to stay with family for awhile, & then we'll be back with them again at some future time. And that ties in with what Jen said:

My earthly self wonders how you recover from this. Such an unimaginable loss. I'm sorry for you and yours.

Our earthly self would have no way to grasp all this, but our eternal perspective makes it bearable because we know the separation is for time but not eternity. My earthly self would wonder how people without that eternal perspective recover from this.

(Edited to refine my thoughts a bit).
