So often I cannot wait until the sun goes down
so that I can once again grab my pillow and be enveloped in
conversation, laughter and hugs with Stafford. Sometimes I have to play
head games with myself and "pretend" he is "across the pond"
involved in a performance where there are no phones or internet and I
can only wait for him to return and call me again. I have good days where I
feel him nearby and then there are days of deep blue mixed with other
colors of longing. I continually pray for the strength to adjust to the
void of his brightness. Believe me, I am grateful to have had him for
36 years and to have so many wonderful memories of his antics, energy,
creativity and a zillion glimpses of his generosity, caring and empathy.
He will eternally be loved, remembered and missed.
In addition to Stafford's gifts to the world, Stuart and Kara gave the world a set of twins, Graeme Stafford Clark-Price and Isobel Sara Clark-Price, born 10/23/2013. There are no words sufficient to express the joy of being a grandmother again!
