  1. Into every life some rain must fall...

    I am so happy to see you back, but saddened at the loss of your brother. I'm his exact age; a dear friend of mine, roughly the same age, just had a heart attack last week and was just an hour ago released from the hospital. Too young, way too young.

    But your family is amazing. You have every right to be one proud mama!

    From sunny beaches to shoveling snow - what a difference a few months makes!

    Hope to see around more!

    PS If you have time, drop in on our friend Nezzy. She could use some hugs right now.

  2. I'm so sorry about your brothers death.

  3. Beautiful family. So very sorry about having to say good bye to your brother. He was a handsome guy!!

  4. Sounds like you are busy. Sorry to hear about your brother - my heart goes out to you.

    I had the same question, "why would you move to PA from Hilton Head, SC??" I wondered myself but love it here now. Glad to hear you are sending out a sister missionary - I was one and loved it!!
