Mortality~

On Thursday my family lost a loved one. An uncle. Kenneth Herald. His funeral is tomorrow, Monday. He was terminally ill with cancer and we knew it was only a matter of time. It’s been a sad time. I’ve tried to stay focused for the kids. They don't understand. His passing has been very difficult for my parents and my Mom especially. Kenneth was her eldest brother.

Today is my Dad’s birthday. He’s 64. We had a special lunch with him at his favorite steak house, Outback. It was rather a sober party, but the little ones kept the cheer up.

Until later~
