Silent Solstice

The darkness comes quickly, wrapping us in its quiet grief. My family has suffered sudden loss in the final days before holiday, a profound shift that is just starting to sink in.

He was a man who was always there, for his country and community and family, a voice that told us more than we knew, a believer who lifted up thousands of students by his words. The landscapes he painted brought peace to our dreams.

We are led through the shadows by his legacy. Forever accompanied by his faith that the light will return.

It is just up ahead.
