Golden Anniversary; Unthinkable Loss

Golden Anniversary; Unthinkable Loss

This story talks of all emotions. It talks of greatness of a grand father and his accomplishments, of a grandson who had the same never give up attitude of his grand father and of a dad who was a good support of his family.

It also talks of a tragedy; a loss of a life at such a young age. No matter what age, it is hard to lose a loved one; but when a child is taken, it is devestating.

I was awe struck by the father of the son' comment at the end. It just goes to show, when we are in the right place, we can find joy and peace. Our hearts are heavy with the loss, but we must also look around and see that joy is all around. We just have to be open to it. He's always there with us!

Have a beautiful and blessed weekend all. I hope to be fully recovered and back into everything real soon.
