Well it has been a while again. Lots of things both good and bad have gone on since last post.
I made it down to the St. Louis area and was able to say goodbye to my brother. He was a great man a man of god who dedicated his life to god and to inmates in prison to help them see the light and be saved and reformed to walk a path of life and light instead of being in the dark. I know he touched many people in his life and it was very evident from the comments and kind words that I heard while down there. I know there were many who could not approach me since I look so much like my brother. They could not believe that he was gone, I know I could not believe it at times either. Seeing him in the casket and being able to talk to him helped me bring closure to that part. I even went out to the crash site and looked at it to put it all together on how it happened.
It was almost a month later to the day that my father passed away. Leaving me as the only child left and my mother. Now I need to take care of her and all of the properties they and myself own. Not that many just three. But taking care of three houses is not always easy. I know that I can do it I was just hoping to not do it now. But life goes on and he was pretty much on the down hill slide due to colon cancer and Leukemia. I am glad that he is in a better place and free of pain.
December was more relaxing as we got ready fro the holiday season. I am happy that I was able to give the family a nice Christmas and that life is looking to be more relaxing now. Lots of stress is not out of my life. Now that brings us to the new year. We did the family tradition of pancakes at Ihop at midnight. I remember a few years ago when it was just five of us. Now it has grown to some good friends and more family. We showed up at Ihop with 18 people on the 31st of December 2015 to ring in the new year. It was great times. And a nice tradition that is growing yearly.
I hope that you all have a wonderful New Year and that 2016 is very good to you all.
