Hello Dad & Mom, how amazing, 50 years ago, on Christmas you 2 were married !!! I remember very clearly when Dad asked Marlin, Duane and myself if we would like to have a new mom.

All of us Million siblings have been blessed. Your commitment to one another, through various trying circumstances, is a wonderful example for folks to follow. Your work ethics, are hard for others to be compared with. You provided well for your children. Dad, growing up, I do not remember you being sick and not able to go into work. Mom, how proud I was to show off the clothes you made for us. You 2, always seem to find room for more visitors.  Meals at the Millions, better than any restaurant !!! You have gone out of your way to help or visit dear ones.

I pray God bless you, immensely. I hope for answers regarding health issues. I pray all your children, grandchildren and great grandchildren would appreciate the special couple you are !!! Thanks for caring !!! Thanks for giving !!! Thanks for loving !!!

For me, I asked of you a very hard thing. You 2 will never know what a comfort you  were for me on Shawn’s last day. I am grateful you had the courage to be with Melissa, Shawn and myself, as we waited.  

I hope your love continues to grow~it is encouraging for all those around you.

I love you 2 and thank God He allowed me to have you as parents !!!   Blessings on your 50th anniversary !!! Lovingly, K

Hello, From PorQ May 21, 2016

Hello everybody !!! My name is PorQ. On May 28th, it will be 3 years since I met the Millions.

Kathy had already worked on a post, but I decided I would like to share, some tid-bits. I may add some thoughts from the different posts Kathy has written. Maybe another prospective. I think folks need to realize that even though Kathy seems so sad, she really has done well, on her grief journey, even though she claims to be God’s biggest wimp.

 I will give a brief tell of our first meeting.  

After Shawn died, 10 days later, Kathy decided it was time to go back to work. It ended up being too much. She was driving her high schoolers to their school. She had just past the Costco light, and had gone over a bump~which is now repaved. There was Shawn, at least, Kathy was convinced it was Shawn; his walk, clothing, build. There were some other details that made Kathy certain it was Shawn. She could not get her passengers to school quick enough. When she arrived at the bus lot, she told her boss she couldn’t work, too many triggers.

 Kathy decided she needed to go home~to her Dad & Mom’s. She needed to figure out memorial service details. Her brother, Darin, was going to officiate.

 Since Shawn died, Kathy has struggled with decisions she had to make regarding his end.

When Kathy first heard me crying, it was shortly after my Mom had left me, on the back stoop, of the porch at the Million’s home.  There was blood on the stoop. I think my Mom was hurt bad and she had to decide what was best, for me.  Sometimes decisions have to be made that make us doubt ourselves. I hope, someday, that Kathy will come to know, she did not fail Shawn. I hope God will help her to simply trust Him. I hope she will learn that God can use her sadness to comfort others, like she did me.
