Sad Day

I'm a little empty tonight. We lost a nephew; a son of Jilda's sister Pat. I have a picture of him and his two sisters when he was about five years old.
They were sitting on the hood of their dad's red Chrysler Imperial. It was an early 60s model and as long as a barge. All three kids were grinning at the camera.
His health had waned the last few years, but he was just in his 40s and he died way too young.

I'm on a roll so tonight I'm posting another picture that doesn't have much to do with the blog post. It was taken near Pebble Beach, California.

  6. I just left a comment for Jilda. I am so, so, so very sorry. There is never a good reason for losing someone so young and nothing to say that will really ease the pain. God bless the family- xo Diana
