I'll be away for a wee bit....

I am taking a break for bit. Our family is grieving the loss of my sweet grandfather who lost his battle with prostate cancer yesterday. We had the gift of being able to say goodbye before he passed and I know he is not suffering anymore. We will be having family coming from out of state and I will be spending time with family. Pardon my absence during this time. I hope you all have a wonderful and safe Halloween. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. Take care~jackie

Oh, Jackie. What could I possibly say about such a loss. Words do not seems to signify the depth in these times.
I am so very sorry for you and your family. May time ease your pain and all those great memories help to outweigh the loss someday.

Here for you if you need anything~
