We’ve had a death in the family.
On Friday evening we learned that Chris’ cousin had died suddenly. He was only 51 years old.
Of all of Chris’ family, this cousin that passed away was one of the few people that I really got along with well. He was a good friend and we’ll miss him terribly.
The funeral is on Tuesday, but of course it’s out of town.
I expect that beginning later today Chris and I will be driving in and out of town for the next few days as we visit with relatives, go to the visitations and then the funeral on Tuesday. Chris’ brother has already driven up from Chicago.
Considering that I’ll be away from home a lot over the next few days I’ve decided to try to bring my laptop with me so I can get some of my blog postings done .. maybe while in the car as we drive back and forth. I guess it’s a good thing that I purchased an extra, and larger capacity, laptop battery back in November. Now all I need is more laptop memory and I’ll be all set.
I’m not sure when we’ll be heading out of town today … so if you’ve come here for Green Thumb Sunday I’ll try to get my post up, but if I don’t please understand that it might be delayed.
