Ann Voskamp 6h · You may imagine how I’d rather this page in the story was a softer one, less — jarring: My dear Dad was killed this past week the same way our sister was — both killed under a farm tire in the same farmyard. There are stories we find ourselves living that we’d never choose, but this I know in my bones: God is the Word, & He is more than good, He is kind, & He ultimately only writes good stories. This page of the story is not good. And this chapter feels pitch dark & nauseating & we are sorta just staggering through. But this page isn’t the end of the story. This chapter isn’t the final chapter. And the dark doesn’t write the last line. The Word does, the Light does, Love Himself does. So: we Stay in His Story, stay in The Story, stay & trust that there is only one Word that can re-story & restore all our busted hearts with His. … From Dad’s obituary: On the farm that he loved, on April 29th, 2021, Bryan Morton, returned to the dust whence he came & which he deeply loved. Bryan’s love of windmills symbolized his passion for the harnessing of earth & sky, loved the working of the earth, the harvesting of its bounty, & believed farming was his art and poetry. He took his canvas to town & @brussels_four_winds_barn became his magnum opus that he built with his own two hands. A man of vision, a man of creativity, a man who was never at a loss for an unconventional idea, his unforgettable, worn hands were a testament to an incredible work ethic, a lifetime of ingenuity, and his deep, deep love and service for his family. He was dearly loved & will be dearly missed beyond imagining. … Dad, I promise you, with everything we’ve been given, we will live given, live into a good story that has cruciform love written into every line… The last line is always a good line, Dad — and you are always loved. -Ann
Oh Ann, I am so sorry. May you and your family be overwhelmed with God’s love and comfort. May He bring healing and peace to your broken hearts as He holds you all close to His. A sunset on earth is a sunrise in heaven.

So sorry for this loss. No good words to express the shock and the torn places. Praying as you weep and lean into the grief. Our God is near.
So very sorry, yet at the same time incredibly hope-filled, as I read this post. May you and your family continue to be filled with the comfort that comes from God, as He comforts like no other. Grateful to you for sharing this glimpse of your Dad with us. Be held in His arms and until you both meet again, be peace-filled.

So terribly tragic… sitting with the grief you, your family and all who loved him… entrusting each of you to the One who’s held you through so much other heartbreak.
I am so sorry….I know he was a great man. Thank you for sharing this most difficult news. My prayers are with you and your family. He has Won the Race.
I’m so, so sorry for this tragic loss, dear Ann. So much of life is incomprehensible….may God’s love and tender care for you and your family not only meet but surpass this great pain. Lifting you in prayer!

Ann, we are so sorry for your tremendous loss. Our prayer is that you and your family be “held” by the precious, gentle Hands of our Father God. He cares deeply and so do we! May your Dad’s story & legacy continue on in your lives. Isaiah 41:10.
I am so sorry for your grief. Praying you will feel God‘s peace through all of this. Also, I’ve never read a more beautifully written obituary. Your words have been a comfort to me in my own dark times. Praying that they somehow do the same for you.

Thank you for sharing a glimpse of your Dad with us, Ann. Praying that God will comfort and encourage your heart, as you have done for ours so many times
My sincerest condolences to you and your family. Sending up prayers for you and all who loved him. He will be missed, but as a priest once told me, “Remember, there WILL be a reunion!”
Ann, you are one of our dearest friends, though you may never meet most of us. Your words have eased our burdens, and comforted us, in ways you will never know. We we hold you up in prayer, you and your family, as the greatest Comforter does his work in you all. You are so very loved.
Debbie J. Shields

Beautiful Ann, such devastating heartache only the Lord’s hand can reach. Simply unimaginable and tragic for you walk this familiar path once more. May He carry you and your family and be everything. I see your Dad’s smile lives on in yours. In His kindness I pray you will find it again.

Our hearts break for you and your family. Your words and tribute are beautiful, and you will be in our prayers. We do not grieve without hope, for better is one day in His courts than thousands elsewhere. Love, tears, thoughts and prayers, our beautiful sister in Christ.
Oh sister, my heart just aches for you and your loves. Laying you down at the feet of the only One big enough for loss so great. Much love to you all.
I loved reading the story of when your dad brought tables that he built from trees on his farm into your little stone church. So much love in that story. Praying for you and your family.
I’m so sorry Ann. What a loss: He seems like such a treasure. I lost my dad unexpectedly 8 years ago and your books have helped me navigate the grief. I’m Not going to say I’ve done it perfectly…I’m so so sorry for your pain. Daddy’s are irreplaceable: Thank you God for yourself.
