Last week we lost a precious family member,
Loving thoughts and prayers go out to my Sister and the boys,
on the loss of their husband and father....this also to all their extended families.

Everybody loved him
how could you not,
he was an absolute inspiration
when staring death in the face
he remained one of the most
positive and funniest men
you'd ever meet.
He was hugely brave,
he embraced and loved life
in a way that few are able.
He gave from a generous heart.
A personal  and caring friend to all
who knew him.
No-one was exempt from his kindness
He taught us not only how best to live
but also how the best die
The world has lost and
what a loss it is.

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
  A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
  A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
  A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance......
  A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.      Ecclesiastes III

Thanks so much for stopping by....l hope this post hasn't made you too sad, but lets face it every one of us has experienced loss in their life, so l'm sure you can relate.
