some sad family news**




you know life is a funny funny thing, you never know what you have until it is being taken away from you.....my brother's father-in-law passed away last night..doug was 60yrs old.....he was diagnosed with lung cancer stage 4 amonth ago..never knowing that when he went to the doctor for something else and discovering that it was cancer...doug is a standup guy that has a lust for life and his kids and his grandkids and is the kind of friend that would give you the shirt off your back and be there in a flash on his motorcycle at the drop of a hat..it is mysterious how god works and why he choses or how he choses those to enter heaven next......please keep my brother and his family in your thoughts the next few days....we may be losing a great man but heaven is gaining one hell of a man....

Oh, Kim...I am so sorry for you all. Hang on tight to the memory of all that this special man meant to you and your family. I know just how hard it is to loose one of the "really good guys" but in time, hopefully, you will not think so much of the loss and more of the ways he blessed your life. My prayers are with all of you.
Love,
Ellen

So, so sad. I am sorry to hear this, pet. I know death is part of life, but I still don't understand it all and the sorrow it brings to those left behind is very real.

My thoughts and prayers are with you.
