Remembering a very special man!

I usually am a big kid and really love Christmas, but this year the joy is gone. My brother passed
away unexpectantly from a blood clot this past Sat. My father was married before  and
 had two children. As children we didn't get to see each other very often.I feel like
we we're all cheated.
 I will always remember the summer that David and Becky got to come to our house for a week, Did we ever have fun, We all still laugh about that.
I remember David's special laugh, that he never outgrow. He liked to do little pranks like putting a bunch of salt on Becky's eggs when she turned her head. I just remember the fun we had.
 As adults we would occassionally get together, but not enough. This is a lesson for me, never put off
getting together with the ones you love, because you  never know when you will get the chance again.
I remember the other year David had me and my sisters for a cookout/birthday celebration for my younger sisters. You could see the pride and joy on his face when we were all at his house laughing and having a good time. He was so happy to have us all there.I will cherish that time forever.
 He was an avid hunter, he loved spending time outdoors in the woods.
He leaves behind two children and five grandchildren.His mother, brother, five sisters and my dad.
Remember us all on Friday when his Memorial Service is held. Say a little prayer for us all.
  My heart is saddened and Christmas will never be the same,  I love you David and will
miss you so much. RIP my brother.

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
