Tough Thanksgiving For QVC’s Wheeler, Us And Our’s

We can sympathize with QVC host Dan Wheeler, who just returned to the home shopping network after losing his beloved wife Beth to cancer.

It is going to be a tough Thanksgiving for him, as he eloquently wrote in a blog, as it is for us and our family.

Dan Wheeler returns to QVC.

Dan Wheeler returns to QVC.

This is our first Thanksgiving without our father. Our uncle passed away a few weeks ago, and my aunt and cousins won’t have him at the table today. Our childhood friend lost her 67-year-old husband to a heart attack, leaving her alone to raise their 11-year-old son.

Dan took an upbeat approach to writing about Beth, expressing thanks that he enjoyed 37 years with her. We had our dad a lot longer than other people. We give thanks for that.

Our dad wasn’t a religious man, but every Thanksgiving he would lead us in an off-the-cuff prayer before we ate. Every year, it was almost the same.

He’d give thanks for our food, for everyone around the table, for our troops overseas, for our country, adding that we also remembered those who were no longer with us.

This year, we wonder who will say the prayer.
