Matthew

My normally upbeat blog report is tempered by the loss of my son. He passed away November 10. I haven't really wanted to discuss it, and still don't, as it is so personal, and I do not have an open book policy on my life. Just suffice it to say that I am at peace with it and I know he is being tended to by our loving Father in Heaven. Still, I feel his loss deeply. He was 42 years old and left behind a wonderful wife and two great kids. I am with them now and will be here in Arizona until after Christmas. It is not necessary to comment on any of this, I have trouble talking about it. My next post will be back to the normal things. I need to get back to the normal things.

I am so sorry for your loss. I guess I talk about things TOO MUCH. We all handle things in our own way. I pray that you take care of yourself , you are obviously taking care of his family, and that is all you can do. It's something we ALLLLL have to do one day. We come into this world and go out of this world the same way. My father commited suicide, and that was something I've struggled with for years. Then, you see young people taken so young, there's no real understanding it all. However, we have to go on with our lives as best we can until it's our time. BIG HUG~ One thing when you start blogging though, you have folks who become friends and they care about you...
