I will be away for a little

rose2I won’t be blogging for the next week or so.  We have suffered what can only be termed as a tragic loss.  The oldest of my 3 brothers, Scott, just got married on Valentine’s Day.  Yesterday, his new wife, Debra passed away.  As you can imagine, we are all in a state of disbelief.  I know I am leaving a few things hanging here – the Pay it Forward and Comment Love giveaways, but I will take care of them when I get back home.  Prayers for my family, and most especially for my brother would be greatly appreciated.  And for me as well – this seems small in the face of everything, but I have never flown before and I will have to, so that I can be there with my family.

Thanks in advance for your words of condolence – I know that the wonderful group of friends who visit me here will be offering comfort, and I am grateful for that.  Do me a favor and go hug somebody you love and tell them how much they mean to you, ok?  See you in a week or so.
