Wesley

"If death my friend and me divide,
thou dost not, Lord, my sorrow chide,
or frown my tears to see;
restrained from passionate excess,
thou bidst me mourn in calm distress
for them that rest in thee.

I feel a strong immortal hope,
which bears my mournful spirit up
beneath its mountain load;
redeemed from death, and grief, and pain,
I soon shall find my friend again
within the arms of God.

Pass a few fleeting moments more
and death the blessing shall restore
which death has snatched away;
for me thou wilt the summons send,
and give me back my parted friend
in that eternal day."


-Charles Wesley

Mark,

I am so sorry for your loss. I only recently found out about Millie's passing. She was a friend of mine from middle school. We met up again while at UCLA. I had no idea that the two of you wound up getting married. I am heart-broken over your immense tragedy. Tears filled my eyes and ran down my cheeks as I quietly read your blog entries. I would love to hear from you when you have a chance. Please email me (yacht_anagram@yahoo.com). I apologize for this post being a personal message, but I have no other way of contacting you. It's been so long, dear friend.

Mr. Mikasa,

I'm happy to learn that you and Lucas are moving into a new home and starting a new chapter of life.

I am finally starting the college application process! I'm a little scared, but also a little excited. Do you think you have the time to write a letter of recommendation?

I hope that you are making a smooth transition into your new home! Even if you are not able to write a recommendation letter, I would really like to catch up! My email is mr.leoliu@gmail.com.

Hope you are well, and hope to hear back!

Leo
