Day 27--May 24, 2013

          This morning, Richard and I were awakened by an early morning call.   It was my sister telling me my neice, Crissy, (Christina Leigh Swangern Stone) had passed away. It was 41.  She leaves her husband, Joe, daughters Sarah Jo (16) Carlee (11) and son, Jesse (8). 
           I'm not sure how much blogging I will get to do over the next week, but we have turned back from our trip north.  We should be in Morgantown, West Virginia by Sunday evening. 
          The funeral will be on Tuesday, May 28.  That is the same day our mother passed away seven years ago.  We'll spend a couple of days after the funeral with my sister, and then head north again on Friday.
           Just wanted you to know in case I skip a few days of blogging.  Thank you for all the prayers sent to my sister and her family.  They are deeply appreciated and will still be needed for some time to come.

Until next time,


  1. Dolores, I am so sorry for your loss. This is so very sad. I will keep you and your family in my prayers, especially Joe, Sarah Jo, Carlee and Jesse. I'll also pray for Richard that he manages not to run into any problems with this long drive shadowed by such sadness.

  2. Dolores, my heart goes out to you and your family. May you have a safe journey. I know you will be a great comfort to your sister, your niece's husband and children. Give them your love at this time. Take care.

  3. Soo very, very sad to lose someone so young. My prayers and love are with you and your family.

  4. Please accept my heartfelt condolences. You and your family are in my prayers.
