My favorite Santa & a heavy heart tonight

I won't be posting tomorrow as I will be caring for my grand-daughter, Riley.  A friend of my son, at the age of 25, has passed away from cancer. Tomorrow is the funeral. Our hearts ache for Eric's family and his many friends.  God's speed, Eric.

hugs. Deb


  1. That is so sad Deb. So young, such a loss. My thoughts are with is family.

  2. My prayers for you, and for the grieving family. 25 is far too young. That's my daughter's age.

  3. I'm so sorry, Deb. 25 is so young and I will be praying for the family.

  4. I'm so sorry, am sending condolences to his family and friends. Loss when life is just getting started seems especially cruel and difficult to bear.

    Peace and universal Blessings to all.

  5. Your friends have my thoughts. 25 is far too young to leave. I so agree with Kea that life is so cruel. HUgs GJ x

  6. I'm so sorry to hear about John's friend, Eric; wishing his friends and family comfort during this sad time...I've enjoyed reading your posts from the last few days; all the Christmas decorations are wonderful and I especially enjoyed the Rae Rae/Joe update and the darling photo of John, Jess and Allie when they were kids...Take care Deb and get lots of hugs from sweet Riley today.

  7. It doesn't seem fair that a person so young should be taken.

    Sending you hugs and knowing that looking after your wee Riley will make the day a little bit easier to bare.
