Today my heart is in Ohio, where MJ and his family have gathered to mourn the death of MJ's cousin Bill. Bill died unexpectedly last week of complications from diabetes. Most heartbreaking is that he leaves three young children behind.
I am home alone with the kids yesterday and today while MJ attends the viewing and funeral. I wish I could hug Bill's brothers and sister and children, tell them how much I enjoyed the times I spent with Bill, and let them know how much I'm thinking of and praying for them.
Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen
