    First of all, I am very sorry for your loss - my prayers are with you and your family - especially your brother.

    I'm glad everything went well with the funeral. Although I must say, 8 hours driving one way......just the thought makes my head spin. I cannot tolerate road trips! I'm glad for you that you made it through everything ok.

    Happy New Year!

    Your body holds up to get you through the crisis. Then, when you begin to relax, your body begins to react to the stress you have gone through.

    Your Right about that! I have often wondered about that Fact!,,,,,I always wondered why i held up during the initial crisis going on and then when i got home or where ever it feels like i was run over by a Mack Truck,,,,,,I know i'm not alone!

    My deepest condolences to you and your brother. What a tragedy, so young and 6 kids!

    I'm so glad you were able to make the trip, and I'm sure your brother will appreciate it always.

    Now begin taking very extra good care of YOU, ok? This will take a toll on you, we all know.

    We'll be thinking of you...

    So very sorry about your SIL. Yes, much too young, and I am sorry for the kids and your brother. It is so wonderful that they were able to get up and talk about her life, how brave!

    I hope you are getting some much needed rest. I will say a prayer for you and your family. Hugs, Kim

    Thanks for all your support!,,,,,,They Live in a very rugged part of Idaho,,,along the Salman River,,,so we had to travel over a huge snow covered mountian pass,,,WEEEE!,,

    It was a Beautiful Drive Though! The Trees on the top of the pass were laden with alot of snow,,,,so beautiful!,,,,,,,

    The Road over the Pass is a 4 laner and is very well Manintained by snow plows,,,,,,the only thing though is that the Wind can be very Nasty up there!

    But yes Her Childern are all Grown and have kids of their own,,,,,Get this,,,,there are 14 Grandkids between the 6 childern!,,,,,They all are very bright and Beautiful,,,,,

    my 3 Nephews are not married yet but will i'm sure eventualy!,,,,,,,,,Both of My Brothers are very important to me! I hadn't seen my Nephews for along time,,,,,so it was Good!

    I'm so very Thankful for all of your prayers and Support!,,,,,,,Hugs! Sis
