Sad news guys, Sharon just passed on this past hour, may she rest in peace. I did not think she would last till Chhristmas when I saw her just over 2 weeks ago.

Now she is back with Jim and her pain and suffering is over.

So very sorry Durk. I hope she wasn't suffering too much. Like you said, now her pain is gone and she is back with Jim. May our Father hold them close forever. Lee

Sorry, Durk. My condolences. I just got a call before lunch and learned that a friend of mine died of a massive heart attack yesterday. I just saw him Sunday! His wife is taking it pretty hard. Why wouldn't she? I'm just thinking that it is especially difficult to lose a loved one so near to Christmas. It kinda ruins all the Christmas to come, don't you think? Sigh.

It was 19 years ago to this day that an eighteen year old niece of mine was killed in an car accident. Then 3 years ago last week Jim died, and now Sharon.

Kind of makes it hard for the grandkids, wondering why the parents are sad at this happiest time of the year.

Thanks guys, your condolences are much appreciated.

Miss Tina's Grandmother (still alive) gets reall sad Christmas day. Her husband passed that morning, albeit years ago now. Her mother and father passed this time of year too. Sure is tough to stay jolly with all those memories. Hang in there dear friend. Lee

Durk, Patti and I are so sorry for your loss of Sharon. She made her journey home to the good Lord and is now in good hands. One day, we will all make that journey and be reunited with our loved ones once again. We will keep you, your family, and of course Sharon, in our thoughts and Prayers.

Please keep us informed of the "on line" obituary when it becomes available.

Mike.

Sorry Durk,
I know life can be very tough at times, but in a case like Sharon's, it may be for the better. She is in a better place now.
Not that it makes anyone feel better(I know it did not make me feel any better) but Tuesday night, a couple stops after the school bus let my 16 year old son off, a driver didn't stop for the bus, red lights flashing and all.
He mowed down a beautiful little 11 year old girl, snuffed her out by stupidity, and didn't even stop.
They caught him about 40 miles up the road.
She was the daughter of our schools past security officer.
Just saying, life is so fragile. Never know when we will be gone.
Try to have a good Christmas Bud,
Kyle

Thanks Mike, Ryan and Kyle, much aooreciated.

Kyle, that is a shocking story, I cannot even imagine how ger friends and family must feel. These tragic incidents need not to happen at all.

With the holiday weekend and all I have no idea yet what the arrangements are for the funeral and visitation. I sort of think it will be Tuesday or Wednesday.

I just found out the details:

Durk, just hang in there buddy. My heart is sad for your family's loss. You and your family are and will always be in my daily prayers. Stay strong. Keep the good memories of your Brother and Sharon in your heart. And be comforted in knowing they are back together with our Father. Lee
