His time on earth is done

Well, here we are again, kinda late at night and I am waiting for Scott to get home from work.

My good friend passed away Friday night. I found out at Emma's soccer game Saturday morning and thankfully a couple of the other moms took care of Harley while I sat in my chair, in the freezing cold, thanking god I was able to feel the freezing cold. It is very sad but he is no longer in pain. There won't be any services here in town. His wife is having him cremated and the services will be held in Carlsbad, NM. I truly wish I could make it down there. Maybe a few of us from work will find a way. I doubt it but we could try.

Since last September I have known 6 people that have passed on from this world. Most of them were too young to die and a couple were old and had lead a long, happy life. I think it is time for the dying to stop for a while. Myself and my friends just can't take it anymore. Six people in six months is too many.

I'm actually listening to PBS right now because they have a Randy Travis concert on, trying to raise more money for their station. I watch PBS maybe twice a year and tonight listening to Randy Travis is soothing.

Oh, Scott and I had a great night Friday. We didn't go out but we still stayed up late ;)

Sorry to hear about your friend. I hope this is the last bad news you get for awhile.

I'm very sorry to hear about your friend. It's hard loosing one person you know but six must be devastating.
You need a break from the bad news and deserve some good news.

Hi Shannon

I was so sad to read yours and Sams news. Its so hard when people die and especially when you feel its not their time to go.

We lost my husbands Granny in Feb and it was a shock because it was so quick.

I hope you find peace in the fact that your friend is no longer suffering.

Take care
