Thank you so much for all the kind words, condolences, prayers and thoughts on my behalf. I have felt so supported and loved!
A few things to let you know about in regards to upcoming events:
- I've had to cancel the book signing at the Rainbow Blvd. Barnes and Noble in Las Vegas tomorrow.
- But I WILL be at the Mysterious Galaxy Book Store in San Diego on Saturday morning, 11:00 am, for their birthday bash.
- NEW EVENT: I will also be in Oregon coming up on June 2nd for the YA Book Festival in The Dalles, Oregon, at Klindt's Bookstore. Hope to see you there.
My dad's send-off yesterday was simple and sweet, just like he is. We are extremely grateful for the bonus four and a half years we got with him since his diagnosis. They were good years, and he was healthy for most of them.
Now if we could just figure out how to navigate a world he's not a part of. :)
Love to you all.
If you ever need to talk or a shoulder to cry on or someone to go lunch with or ANYTHING, I'm here for you, okay? One quote that Megan had printed o a picture of her and Josh at his funeral was something close to this: "The best way to have a piece of Heaven in your home is to have someone you love be in Heaven." It's a small comfort to have right now, but I know your sweet dad is going to be as close to you all as he can be, as often as possible.ReplyDelete
You'll figure it out XD and we'll all be waiting here and helping you along the way as best as us readers can :)ReplyDelete
At least he left you with an excellent compass.ReplyDelete
Hugs to you and your family. Ahhhh your going to be in Oregon. I already have a signed copy of Everneath maybe I'll bring it and have you put my name it.ReplyDelete
Good luck to you and your family. I can only imagine what you're going through.ReplyDelete
Oh, and SQUEAL! You'll be in Oregon? Yay! As soon as you know times I'd love to have more details!
He's still a part of this world, you just can't see him. I know--I KNOW--he's walking with you, watching over you, and helping orchestrate thing in your life from the other side.ReplyDelete
I'm happy for you for the extra 4.5. God bless you, Brodi. My heart is with you.
I'm so excited!!! I've had plans for about a month now to see you on Saturday! :DReplyDelete
So sorry to hear about your dad. Many prayers for you and your family.ReplyDelete
Brodi - the service was beautiful, happy and so celebratory. I dittoed your Dad's friend, you and Erin were amazing. Your talk was perfect, truly. I'm so grateful to have known your Dad. And what a blessing that he was able to be at your launch party, zoomed in on your face the entire time. ;) No doubt he will still be aware of your success, still a part of your wonderful life. Keeping you in my prayers. xoReplyDelete
He's still in this world. Every quiet moment, gentle breeze and ray of sunshine, that's him showing you he's still supporting you in everything you do. You ladies sure did an outstanding job and I am glad we could make it. I think family is everything, even though we aren't always around... (I'm working on that one, hopefully this summer's reunion??) Love you and continue to pray!ReplyDelete
The celebration of his life was awesome. You and Erin were amazing. Hugs for you and our family! If you ever need to talk, a shoulder to cry on, a big hug, to go to brunch, anything let me know. I know ;your Dad will always be with you! I am here for you anytime! Have a wonderful time in San Deigo. Be safe! Lots of Love!ReplyDelete
Navigating the world will be cake, honestly. You all have a very special soul with you every moment, every step of the way. Not everyone is so lucky. My love to you and your family.ReplyDelete
Brodi, I'm so sorry to hear about your dad. I'll keep you in my prayers. Hugs.ReplyDelete

There's a YA book festival in The Dalles? What the what? I grew up in that area (well, 30 miles west of there, where it's much greener and prettier) and nothing that cool EVER happened in TD. Man, I might have to make a special trip home on June 2nd ...ReplyDelete
