A Time To Mourn

I will be taking some time away from blogging to mourn the unexpected passing of my Granddaughter's Daddy.

He was working out of the country, in Cameroon, Africa and died on his 35th birthday.

Please send good thoughts and prayers, if you are so inclined.  He will be truly missed.

God bless you John.  You will always be in our hearts.

I totally understand taking time from all regular activities when there are family get togethers and phone calls and grieving to get through. Does this mean John was your son-in-law? 35 years seems like a short time to live. How terribly sad for all of you. My heart goes out to you and your family.
