8 1/2 Years and Dante is dead. We think he died of something similar to his brother, Tristan. He was not able to go to the bathroom.
Death, no matter how dark it is always seems to bring a glimpse of reality. All things will end. Maybe it is this reality that we struggle with. We can hang on and hang on and hang on, but ultimately we will lose our grip and be forced to let go.
I guess, so goes the saying, "Let go and let God."
1 Thessalonians 4:16
Soon and very Soon! Soon and Very Soon!

And he said, “I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.” And Moses hid his face, for he was afraid to look at God. (Exodus 3:6)
I saw a dream that made me afraid. As I lay in bed the fancies and the visions of my head alarmed me. (Daniel 4:5)
And he said to them, “Why are you afraid, O you of little faith?” Then he rose and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm. (Matthew 8:26)
But I am afraid that as the serpent deceived Eve by his cunning, your thoughts will be led astray from a sincere and pure devotion to Christ. (2 Corinthians 11:3)
Why am I afraid? What is it that causes fear?
My youngest daughter is proud that she is braver than her sister, but she still fears.
"I don't want to die daddy, I don't want to die!"
Why am I afraid?
There is much to be afraid of...I suppose.
Thoughts in our heads...
Being led astray...
Losing one whom you loved...
Why am I afraid?
Psalm 27:1; John 6:20
