I have missed a few days posting as my son-in-law unexpectedly passed away. Such a young man with hopes and dreams. My daughter and her two lovely daughters will surely miss him. I am awed at the many kind acts of service that have been rendered in her behalf and thank everyone for their kind expressions of love to her. It is at times like this that we have a blessed opportunity to serve one another and give of ourselves in a way not usually available to us. We will miss him and watch over his family with love.

We often hear of someone passing and want to help and just do not know what to do. I now know what we found to be good in our situtation. A neighbor just showed up with 5 cases of soda pop, water and ice in an ice chest. She then went home and baked two pans of brownies, with and without nuts. She came every day to bring ice and check on my daughter. Lovely sisters from her church came 3 times to clean the home and do bathrooms, fold laundry. Then the miracle showed up. One man who had know them for many years came with his truck and tools and spent all afternoon cleaning, pruning and trimming everything in the yard both front and back and the side yards of neighbors the ajoined hers. Breakfast showed up the first day as did lunch. Then lunch and dinners for a week. All selfless acts of love for her. We are truly blessed in times of sorrow.
