Checking in...and saying Hi....

Well I just wanted to let you all know that I have been away from RB the past few days, and will not be back online ’til at least Saturday sometime or Sunday (June 27 or 28th).

We’ve had a death in my Father-n-law’s side of the family. It was a very sudden death, as the Uncle who passed had not been sick. So it’s a hard thing for us. We were close to him. Especially ’Lil Kloe.

He passed on Tuesday about 4:40pm (central time). We know he is in Heaven living it up! The only way to get Kloe to be ok with it is to explain it that God needed an angel named “Shorty”, because that was his nickname, and so he had to have Uncle Shorty. She’s still sad, but glad that he’s in Heaven with Jesus…she said.

I will try to catch up on comments, etc when I return. You all have a wonderful rest of the week and weekend!


OH…and TODAY (the 25th of June) is my sis-n-law’s bday!!!

JUJUBEAN!!!! We love you!!!!

    Be careful. wish I were able to go. Thx for the B-day,wishes! :) You should frame one of the pics with Kloe and Uncle Shorty,from your last visit,and hang it in her room. Maybe that would make her feel better.

  • I wish you were with us too!! I thought about that last night. I also told her that I’d take a pic of them and put it with him in the casket just for her….made her feel better. :)

    Sorry to hear of such news. It’s a shame that a couple of us are going through losing a family member so closely together.

    I’ll say a prayer for you and yours.

    Take care.

  • Thanks so much! It honestly still doesn’t seem that it happened.
