A Loss

Hello, friends. A quick note today to explain my unexpected absence and to let you know I may continue to be MIA for much of the next week or more. My family and I have suffered the tragic and sudden loss of one of our own and are currently grappling to come to terms with the depths of grief we are experiencing. He was 21 years old and had the kind of smile that could light up a room – he will be forever missed and his absence forever felt. It’s hard to explain in words just how close my extended family is and likewise it’s impossible to explain how his loss has shocked us all. Hopefully in the next few days this dark cloud hanging over us will start to lift and hopefully I’ll be back sooner rather than later. In the meantime, I’m going to be spending the next several days with the people who mean the most to me and without whom I’d be lost.

To those of you who caught wind that something was amiss – thank you for your love, your support and your prayers. It has meant the world to me and to my family and I cannot thank you enough.
