Losing a loved one

Hello, I'm sorry I have been absent. A few days after my last post, tragedy hit our family. My cousins husband was killed in a snowmobile accident. It has really been hard on all of us. Especially my cousin who is now a widow at the tender young age of 27 and her son is only 20 months old. This whole ordeal has made me really appreciate life and also see just how short it is. It has made me hug my own husband more and cuddle with my boys every chance I get. Dave was a wonderful man and husband. He had a laugh that warmed your heart and made you smile. Above is a picture of Dave with my BIL at the Kentucky Derby last year and the other is a pic of Dave with his son visiting a horse farm during Derby week. We loved him and he will be missed dearly. So please, go give your loved ones a big hug and kiss.

Kristi I wish I could come and give you a big hug. I know how heart wrenching this must be for you and your family. Dave was such a young man with a wonderful smile. Thank you for sharing his photo. I know you will be there for your cousin as you are such a caring and good person. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. RJ

Kristi, I'm new to blogging but enjoying it so much. I found your blog by reading another one.
I'm so sorry about the death in your family.
I scanned down your postings and enjoyed the pictures of your home. You mentioned Ballards. One of my favorite magazines. I am a charity shop addict. I did a post on that this week. Please drop by sometime.
