Tell 'em You Love 'em

You just never know when a life will come to a close.  I received a call at lunch yesterday that my cousin had passed away.  We grew up together.  Attended school together.  He was just two months younger than me.  Can you believe it?  33 years old and passed away.  

This was us (he's in the cowboy hat) at our 10 year class reunion back in 2005.  




So let those you love know it!  Cause we just never know what the future holds.  


I'm headed to the panhandle in the morning.  I'll be MIA for a few days but don't worry, I'll be back.  Prayers for the husband who will be home alone with the dogs.

Stay safe out there, and I hope your husband and the dogs won't fall apart without you!

I know I'm sorry to hear that doesn't really say much but at the same time sorry for the loss! Was it expected or was it something that just happened?

Sometimes this life and death thing is so hard to make sense out of. I've given up trying. I am sorry for the loss of your cousin. Grieve your loss and remember the good times. As long as we remember, they are always with us.

My prayers are with you at this time! The hubbies family lost a loved one at the age of 13 he had cancer and that was not an easy thing to have to go through! You take care and look to the skies and let him know that you will see him everyday!

Sometimes I think God needs them more than we do. Hard to believe when we need them so much.

I'm sure that the sadness here is in direct proportion to the happiness there.

May the Lord's peace reach you and all those who love him.
