1. Too bad courage and resilience is a learned behavior rather than an inherited behavior. Gene could leave quite a legacy to his decedents through his “genes”! However, I sense he is doing the same through his example. I have always admired his positive outlook to the future.

  2. Oh Lori, I love this!!! And, I love the fact that I see joy in you every time I see you!
    I will add a new request to my prayers for you, that your grandchildren will know you
    Thank you again for sharing your joy, your courage, and your faith with us! You are my Hero, truly

    1. This means so much to me, Kim. You know how much I admire you and the Emmy that you are. Thank you.

  3. Lori this is great. How often do we say “ oh I’m afraid to do that or afraid to let my children. But as one of my friend said one time “ Don’t let anything steal your joy !!! I always remember that statement and pass it on Hope you have had a “JOYFUL” day!!

  4. Lori-
    I’ve been slowly catching up on your blogs…they have been wonderful. Many memories you have brought back.
    Many things in life can come in and try to take our Joy, but thankfully we rise above.
    Keep writing. I’ll keep praying for your health, along with your dear parents.

  5. Lori,
    I loved getting to know your Dad & your message about Fear stealing our Joy is right on! Keep sharing. You definitely have a gift!

    1. Thank you, Donna. Fear is a liar but sometimes I still believe him, unfortunately. It’s a daily battle to hear God’s voice clearer than the fear. Appreciate you reading along!

  6. This is such a beautiful article, thank you for sharing this story and offering such truth! “Only God’s perfect love casts out fear. Nothing else removes it: not knowledge, not control, not comfort, not health.” Had to be one of my favourite lines!
