Grim News from The Woodpile Report

Oh dear. Woodpile Report reports today:

A personal note.

There’s no gentle way to say this, so I’ll not try. My wife is at the end stage of a terminal condition. As is always the case there’s some uncertainty. Weeks are possible, days are probable. Woodpile Report will go dark for a while when it happens.

    May the Lord bless her and keep her. Prayers for the both of you.

    As a caregiver whose wife is well past earlier prognoses of her demise and is yet hanging on, you had best believe that I will be filling the ether with prayers for the Remus clan. This is hard news to hear.

    My prayers also. Life has a lot of sorrow, doesn’t it?

    From what little that I understand, Remus’ wife’s illness isn’t new. The amazing thing is that he has kept up his weekly posting for as long as he has. I once wrote to a now long-abandoned blog, and as our host will attest, writing is work. It takes time and effort. Doing all that while you have an ailing loved-one is very difficult.

    For years now, the WP has been my Tuesday morning go to site for news that flies under the radar screen and for survivalist tips. I am sorry to hear this and am praying for Ol’ Remus and his wife.

    Remus begins each Woodpile Report with an appreciation of a masterpiece of painting and the artist who created it. His entire blog is itself a masterpiece, one of sanity and survivalism, written with insight, clarity, fearlessness and yet good humor. I don’t know his age but he reminds me of the World War II veterans who were my mentors in the 1950s and early ’60s: my Boy Scout troop leaders; my favorite high school teacher who had been a bombadier in the war, shot down and kept in a German POW camp, a tough and brilliant man who was also an artist and sang in his church choir; my own dad and mom, both WW II vets. Remus and his wife are in my prayers.

    The Lord be with you both.

  • Vanderleun February 25, 2020, 8:32 AM

    In mine too. Prayers at eventide and prayers in the new morning.

  • pfsm February 25, 2020, 8:51 AM

    In mine too. I lost my wife to cancer, gradually over a period of half a year. The Lord be with you both.

  • Neil February 27, 2020, 7:28 PM

    My prayers are with you and your wife. Thank you for one of the enjoyable things I look forward to each week. God bless you and yours.

    I sent him a personal email, as I have done from time to time. My second husband died January 23rd. I know the pain all too well.
