Today I don’t have a series of happy photos to post, instead I reflect on the losses in my life including my older brother who just passed away yesterday on July 4th at the tender age of 55.
Yes… he had a lot more living to do and unfortunately he let his drinking addition get the best of him. I can go on about that, but you can imagine if you have ever dealt with this in your family. It is still so hard for me to process. I always hoped that someday I would have my brother back who I once knew as a child.
RIP Chris! I love you! ❤️
Since I carried my first child (16 years ago) GOD has carried these people away from my life and from this earth…

Pastor Bailey -2018
Cousin Kerri – 2020
Brother Chris – July 4, 2021
In my Earlier childhood years/ early adult I also lost my…
Friend John W
….and others I didn’t know so well.
I’m very sensitive to the negative, violent, tragic news around me as I’ve lived enough of it in real time since I was a young child.
Yes…some of these people died a tragic ending. They died too young. They were my close relatives or friends. Their life was cut short. Sadly, their creative potential died with them. I wish I knew them better or longer.
Words are hard to explain how I feel.
Robbed, cheated, short changed.
Life is not a guarantee.
Until my time has come…we will meet again.
I am numb!
