It's the Precious Things in Life

John and Thomas hanging out watching tv.  My uncle Gary, my dad's youngest sister's husband, passed away tonight at the young age of 56, the same age my mom was when she passed away in 2005.  He's one year younger than John, deaths of loved ones sure make you take a second look at what is the most precious in life, all else is just fluff or unnecessary stress.

Karen - sorry to hear about your loss and the sobering thoughts attending it.

My sympathy, Kimberly.
Your post reminds me of what Ecclesiates says: "better to be in the house of mourning..."
Yes, we must number our days.
May the grace of God be with you & your family.
