Rest in peace…

1948 – 2010

My sweet, annoying, irritating, lovable, funny brother-in-law lost his battle with diabetes and kidney disease yesterday.  He will be sorely missed, but he is healed and whole now.  Those of us left behind will miss his laughter and abundant love of life.  My heart aches for my sister Nan as she begins a new journey into widowhood, a place us gals don’t want to think about, much less visit.

So I am on the road heading to Albany today.  Dick will follow tomorrow in the moho…if the roads are free of their snowy burden, with Missy for company.

Life is short, my friends.  Enjoy each day, and be kind to one another.  Hugs to everyone…
