Sadly, we did lose someone very close to us as well. Our good friend Don. The only reason this loss is easier to deal with I think, is because he suffered a long time with pain and infection. It still makes us feel sad. We are suddenly flooded with memories. Thankfully, I have many good ones of Don. Especially jumping in the pool EARLY MAY one year when it was only in the 50's - just so he could say he was the first one in the pool that year!
Oh - Did I mention he was 72 when he did that!??? He is missed by all of us. He was a second grandpa to Storm. He use to like to sit and watch Norm put the display up a few years in a row... now he has the best seat in the house;-)
