Dying young

I have not posted anything for a while now. We have had a terrible thing happen in our family. This past Tuesday, my little step brother was killed in a house fire. Everyone is still in a state of shock. His funeral was this past Saturday. He was only 28 years old and had a wife and 2 year old son. They were not at home when it happened. My step brother was there by himself. I thought about putting his picture on here but decided against it for many reasons. I could only find photos of him when he was a little boy. Also I wouldn't want his mother or my daddy to look at my blog and see it. They are both hurting so badly. My daddy has been his step-daddy since he was 2 years old and his sister, Deanna since she was 3.

Please keep us all in your prayers.

I'm so sorry for your loss. My family received an enormous shock yesterday as well. We learned that a loved one took his own life. He was so young too. In his early 20's. You can be going along so smoothly in your life and then life can abruptly smack you in the face and stun you. I hope you and your family can begin to heal soon. God Bless.
