I'm Home

Well I made it out of the hospital late on Thursday, but a tragedy has taken me down the path of depression.

My next door neighbor was shot & killed, by his older brother, on July 3rd.  This man & his wife have been so good to me, especially when I was a single mom struggling to make a go of it.  His kindess and compassion came through in every conversation I ever had with him.  He was a man of God and a man of goodness.  This has shaken me to my core and is making me re-evaluate the way I live each day of my life.

Please keep his beloved wife Joan and their whole family in your prayers.  I'll be back to posting more regularly when I clear some of the shock and pain out of my system.  I know he is with our Heavenly Father, but his loss will be felt every single day by me and those that knew him.
Thank you in advance for your prayers.
