Furthermore, Tim wrote emotionally “Yesterday Aileen and I cried and cried until we could cry no more until there were no tears left to cry. Then, later in the evening, we looked at each other in the eye and said, “We can do this.” We don’t want to do this, but we can do this—this sorrow, this grief, this devastation—because we know we don’t have to do it in our own strength. We can do it like Christians, like a son and daughter of the Father who knows what it is to lose a Son.”
