Thank You to each of you that prayed for my brother and his family. Prayers were definitely felt, but are still greatly needed. I was able to travel to Virginia for my sister-in-law's funeral. Tim and Naomi and Jeremy and Leigh also went. Mike stayed home with the 8 youngest so that they could be in the Musical at our church. I left on a Thursday Morning and came back on Saturday. It was a very quick trip, but it was so good to be able to be with family.
Debbie was such a sweet, caring, kind and loving person. Her presence will be greatly missed! My brother and his children are feeling that loss tremendously. Their youngest daughter is 16 and she was very close with her mom. My thoughts and prayers are with each of them. I have known Debbie since I was about 9. I had just turned 12 when Rick and Debbie got married. They use to drag me with them all over the place. They usually took me on vacation with them too! It is so difficult to say goodbye, but I look forward to the time that I get to see her again! Heaven will be so Sweet!
The one added bonus of traveling to Virginia was meeting my new great-niece Bethany Joy! Remember this post? Jon and Rachel also came up for the funeral so I was able to get my hands on her! She is the sweetest baby. She doesn't cry very much except when she is hungry. I couldn't get enough of her!
|Me and Bethany. Isn't she sweet?|
