Thank You!



I want to say a big thank you to all of my readers and friends here at my blog! My family felt your prayers as we went through this past week of losing and mourning  my brother. We laid him to rest yesterday under a clear, blue Kansas sky! It was a beautiful service. The minister read my blog post and a piece my youngest brother wrote as well. Fred was loved!! He will be missed by all of us here on earth. He was a good man with a big heart!

And now life must go on. We will honor him by remembering the good times and what he meant to us.

  5. Not been here much this week as you know (thanks for your good wishes for my grandson) so I've only just seen this. Sorry to hear of your loss. It sounds as if you gave him a good send off and from your previous post I see you have lots of good memories to keep him alive in your heart.

  11. Oh dear heart....it's such a big leap in emotions from R.I.P. dear brother to Happy Birthday dear Paula, but each day deserves its own special attention. How beautiful that your blog post was shared at your brother's service. I'm glad others got to hear what we got to read. And I hope people have been returning the blessing by saying wonderful and beautiful happy birthday greetings to you.
