At Robby's services this young man stood at attention as the casket was carried into the chapel. He's from Jamaica but is now proudly a citizen and serving his country. We were lucky enough to spend some time with him and a lot of his buddies as they stayed at my younger daughter's home for a couple of days before returning to the base. I thought he should head to Hollywood when he leaves the service...he probably has different ideas, though.
Anyway, it's been a horrific few weeks, and I'm going to try to get back in the swing of things. While I'm far from being over the hurt and loss I'm going to use my "Echoes in the Night" for further posts about grief and the process of healing. My whole purpose for blogging starting out with the loss of my son-in-law, Doug. I don't want to use this blog for more grief.
I'll go back to the things that make life worth living and enjoying. None of us know when we will leave this earth and I'd like to make it as pleasant a ride as possible.
