Happy Day with some sadness thrown in

Today is our oldest grandson's birthday, and he turns into a teen.  If I remember correctly, it was about this time of day, when he finally made his appearance.  We love him dearly, and if you check further down in my blog, you'll find that he received his birthday present, a homemade Lap Steel Guitar, a few weeks early, so he could enjoy it while on Spring Break.

This morning, our phone rang, and it was to give us word that my husband's nephew had lost his oldest daughter this morning.  It is never easy to lose a loved one, but everyone I've ever talked to, says losing a child, no matter their age, is one of the hardest things you'll ever deal with, in life.  To top it off, Kenny, the father, had a heart attack last week, and hasn't been out of the hospital that long.  And it has only been about 1 1/2 years since his wife passed away.

Please pray for the daughters of Mandy, her husban, for her sister, Tracy and her children, and for her father and grandfather, who will miss her so much.  Pray for the whole family, as they go through the grieving process.
She will be greatly missed.
