As I have gotten older, losing people and death are more prominent in my life and I want to taka few minutes to honor a couple of people that I personally knew and mourn:
I learned the other day that a man that worked with me for years and then I lost track of him was murdered last Saturday by two young men in a club because of a bumping. SMH http://www.wbbjtv.com/news/local/Family-Members-React-To-Early-Morning-Murder-167449965.html
He was a good man and very sweet and leaves behind two small children. His wife is still a client and I sent her an e-mail sending my condolences.
My father, pictured below, died when I was ten. Accidently shot himself. I have always wondered how life would have been if he had lived - I must tell you this man is the only one that I thought truly loved me but he was not without flaw - my parents divorced when I was two and I remember some times that he was scheduled to pick me up that he failed to show. I was stubborn and refused to give up on him each time, sitting on the porch with my suitcase.......
My grandfather played the part of my father when he died, my grandfather died when I was 36. Pictured below in his prime :)
