Robert said...Dear Catherine,

I have followed your father's blog with great interest for over a year now. I'm a Modern German PhD student at the University of Tennessee here in the United States. Your father's work has been wonderful to read and a true historical gem. I pray for both of you as well as the entire family that he will have a speedy recovery.

God Bless,
Robert Rennie

I am saddened to hear of your struggle though I am certain you are approaching this difficult time with strength and some humor. You've touched so many us with your blog which brought us not only a personal story of the war, but also a perspective we can apply to our own struggles. Please know that your audience cares and we wish you well.

Linda Gartz said...Dear Catherine,
I am so sorry to hear about your dad's health. I first heard of his blog in a writing group two years ago-- recommended to me because I am writing about my family history. I wrote your dad -- I think last December about creating his blog. He was so kind and generous with advice, although I believe he was helping his own father at the time. Please give him my kind regards and best wishes for a good outcome to this terrible diagnosis. These last two weeks, I've been posting about WWI and have been thinking about your dad -- wanting to tell him about the posts. www.familyarchaeologist.com. He may not be up for seeing it himself but I wanted him to know how grateful I am for his advice.

I have been thinking and praying about/for you as I had feared you were taking your dad's death very hard; now it is clear what has been happening. All who have learned to love your grandfather - and you - are holding best thoughts and will do anything we can for you.

Catherine, a special gratitude for sharing this with us - and Bill - during what has to be a tough time for you. Thank you for continuing the story...

With loving prayers,
