A Loss In The Family

I received an e-mail from our friend Chris Muir this morning that his sister passed away yesterday. Please continue your prayers and good thoughts for Chris and his family, who will be struggling with this tragic loss. Day By Day will return, but in the meantime, he and his family need time to themselves.

I'm so sorry, Chris. I'm praying for you and your family.

I go to your cartoons first thing everyday. They always cheer me up, and they remind me of conversations my wife and I have sometimes.

I know you only through your work, but I hope you know there are a lot of people out here like me who support you and feel for you and your family. My mother died young (54), too, and it is a tough time for all.

You're in our thoughts.

For Chris and family,
So sorry to hear about your loss.
May the light of the Lord shine upon you,
and the wind always be at your back

Eternal Rest Grant Unto Catherine O Lord;
And let Perpetual Light Shine upon Her.
And May Your Grace Fill the Hearts of those Catherine has left behind that they may find solace knowing Catherine is receiving Her Reward.

My sincerest sympathies to Chris and his family. Chris has always been a gentleman who exhibited the grace and dignity we all wish that we could have. I am sure--difficult as it is--that he is summoning all of that grace and dignity to help his family get through a very difficult time.

Chris, I'm not a fan of your cartoons (I'm not that familiar with them), but I can relate to how terrible losing your sister must be and I am sorry for your loss.

I am sorry for hers too.

I pray that there is an afterlife and your sister is blessed in it.

I am very sorry for his loss.

My heartfelt prayers and sympathies go out to the Muir/Forsythe families. This is a deep grief, but I pray God will wrap His arms around all of you and give you the comfort you need.

I'm so sorry, Chris. I pray for you every day. Your sister is no longer in pain; she is safe and happy and complete. And beautiful!

Those of us left behind, those are whom are sad, and in pain, those are for whom we pray. We're the ones left behind, while those who go ahead are free. I'm so sorry for your loss.

Our prayers are with you, Chris, and your family. God is with each of us in both our joys and our sorrows, but especially our sorrows.

Best wishes and deepest condolences, Mr. Muir--and to your family, and your sister's family, if any.

She will be in my prayers.
