My brother-in-law Dallas' mom passed away last evening after a brave battle with pancreatic cancer. She will be missed.
We also lost a friend of the family, Bob Farmer, last week. We spent many hours with Bob and his family when we were kids. Bob and his wife Marj were very good friends of my parents. Their children, Joanne and Neil, were almost like siblings to me and my sister.
I don't know why but life often throws us a lot of losses at once. Sigh.
