RIP…

I swear, y’all, 2011 is the year that will not quit…and not in a good way.

We received news that my younger sister’s ex/my niece’s father was killed fighting in Afghanistan. There are a couple of articles about him from local FL papers you can find here and here.


Ryan’s remains arriving back in the US…

I only met Ryan a few times, and I haven’t seen him in over 4 years, but when I think of them folding the flag from his coffin and handing it to my five-year-old niece, I just want to ball my eyes out.

Ryan, thank you for giving my sister such a beautiful, wonderful daughter. May you continue to watch over them from your place of rest.

Mournfully,

Me
