With such a heavy heart.......


My delight and thy delight Walking, like two angels white, (Robert Bridges (1844-1930), British poet

Today has been a difficult day for me as a Mother and a friend.

One of Otto's dear friends father passed away. I'm still in shock.

Otto was over Will's house playing with Will and their other best buddy Aaron last Wednesday....I sat and visited with Tina for a bit, while Emma Sage and Stephanie [Will's little sister] played. They were getting ready to head out on a family vacation on Thursday. Otto's cousin Michael, is bestfriends with Will's older brother, Walt. They live across the lane from Ricks' cousin, so besides the children being friends, we as adults have become friends from all the cookouts and smore-making over the last few years.

Walter Gonsiweski passed away in his sleep on the first night of their vacation. At this point, it looks like natural causes, but what exactly is natural for a 38 year old is beyond me.

I am going to be providing childcare for Stephanie in the fall.....so all of this is surreal to me at the moment. My head is dizzy just trying to comprehend this very sad loss,,,of a son, a father, a husband, a friend.....

and earlier this week, a dear online friend of mine, Shawn's Mother passed on in Peace after a couragous battle with cancer.

Between these two events and the funeral last week, if I'm not on blogging for a while, please understand that we've just 'Gone Fishin'....something that Walt loved to do more than anything, is to go fishing with his father and his sons.

We are going to do some fishin' this week in the memory of Walter J. Gonsiweski........Shawn's Mother Dorothy,,,,and Peter T. Brown

Rest in Peace............Rest in Peace.

With a heavy heart, I send my love to you and yours during this difficult time.

Life is precious, losses difficult.

I know that it isn't easy for anyone-especially not the families involved.

Sending you positive thoughts and prayers for everyone who has been touched by the farewell of their loved ones.

I'm so sorry to hear about another loss of someone very close to you. Your family, and most certainly Will's family will be in my thoughts and prayers...what a very difficult time this is for them.
