NOW HE KNOWS WHAT HEAVEN IS LIKE....

My brother passed away this morning at 6:06 am....joining the family that I am sure were waiting for him at heaven's door.
I can't express my love for all of you for your care and concern and kind sentiments for my family. It means more than you could ever realize.
When I became a "blogger" it was something I wasn't so sure I would like.....I guess you can tell I love blogging, reading others blogs and finding new ones. The network of friendships I have made are beyond anything "non-bloggers" could ever understand - AND when a kind word or hug is needed, your "friends" certainly are there for you. I wish I could meet everyone of you in person.
It will be a long few days as arrangements get set in motion - my brother has left a wife of 39 years and two wonderful sons....again ...thank you for your love ...Life goes on....Judy

Now your brother can watch over his wife and children and greet them when it is their time. It is not about this lifetime but the next. God be with you and your family. You are right, life does go on and you will be fine. I too offer a "cyber hug".
