Dear Friends, I will be out for a few days. My first reason was exciting and I have been anticipating it. That is because we will be attending home coming and alumni activities. We will see many long time friends and former students. Also Sunday will be a special day for church friends. So that’s all good, but busy.
Now the additional sad news. I received word that my brother, Clyde, 85, passed away. He had been to Amarillo hospital for check up. He was taken there by a friend, Andy, a long time acquaintance. Andy was driving him back home maybe three hours. Clyde was lying down in the back seat. When they got near Clyde’s house, Andy said he heard Clyde say “I see home,” then he was gone. He couldn’t have seen home when he was lying in the back seat, so those of us who are left to grieve for him take great comfort in believing he was seeing into his heavenly home. We cry but rejoice that he has reached his goal. He was a good man.
I started to say he was a good man, even though he was a Democrat, but I guess I won’t say that. 😀 Giving a tease to my Democratic blogging friends.
There was nothing Democrat about him except that he ran for sheriff one time, and there was no chance of winning if he wasn’t a Democrat.
When I get back I will be posting a series honoring veterans, by telling a story given to me by a Viet Nam Veteran. I believe you will enjoy it. It is Steve’s Story.
