It's been a while, but there is a reason



Oh how does one post such a thing? I have been in Ohio for the past two weeks. My brother lost his battle with melanoma. He was diagnosed on Thanksgiving last year. It has been a steady deterioration over the past 3 months. I was here visiting in July. I am so glad I came while he was still conscious. He leaves behind a wife and 12 year old son. The funeral is tomorrow.

I will be back to posting and quilting soon but really have nothing right now. Craig had a difficult time over the past month and the texting and phone calls were so prolific that I haven't had the presence of mind to quilt. I have missed the first two weeks of school so I have quite a bit waiting for me once I get home.

I am very sorry for your loss. Melanoma is a terrible disease that takes too many, too young.

My love and sympathy go out to you and your family, and most especially to your brother's son. A teenager needs a father so much. This is a terrible loss for all of you. Please don't neglect taking care of yourself while you are caring for everyone.
