I HAVE LOST AN AUNT AND A FRIEND!

I want to thank everyone who has stopped by my blog and left a comment..Things have be hard around here for the last four days.

Three days ago, my aunt died. She did not want a service of any kind and in a month or so, Roy and I will take her ashes and those of Uncle Ju (her husband) to Louisiana to their final resting place.

She was 94 years old and she lived a long and full life and I do not grieve for her…she is happier now.

Many of you have heard we talk about my great friend, Sharon.

She called yesterday morn at 4:00am and her husband just suddenly died from a heart attack. Roy and I immediately went there.

I do grieve for her, she loved him so and will be lost for a while without him, but God will give her strength.

I will be away from the computer for about4-5 days, so I hope you will understand why I haven’t returned your visit.

Please pray for Sharon and her family, they were so close and things will not be the same with Ernie gone.

Then I get the news about Amy and I thank God is she not suffering, but pray for Debbie and family.

Thank you,

The only thing I can offer is a moment of silence. There are no words to ease the pain, only time.

Hello Barbara, I have had such a hard time visiting with so much company taking up so much time and I have wondered why I had not heard from you my friend.

I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your aunt and your fiend's husband. Then on top of that Amy has finally ended her suffering and is with our Lord. My prayers will be for all of you who are grieving at this time.

Blessings and love, Jeanne
