ABOUT THE LACK OF POSTING

My big sister Kate died yesterday, so my family and I are thinking about her and dealing with the things you deal with in these times. I’ll be back here as soon as I can. Meanwhile here’s a picture from the Sixties of my beautiful, funny, smart and sweet sister, the way I’ll always remember her.

So sad to here. In recent days I have been reflecting back to the 60's and how I remember a special girl who, I learned, recently passed away. Beautiful, funny, smart and sweet. My sincere heartfelt condolence and understanding.

First hand experience has taught me that
It is incredibly hard to lose a sister or brother.

Keep the faith Dave. Sometimes healing grief
takes a really long time. But it will come.
Love and prayers for you and your family.

Sad for your loss, Dave. As for blogs...they can wait while we sort out our feelings. We lose people as we age, then others miss us when we check out. Live long and prosper,Dave.
