A heavy heart

I originally had not planned on posting her about this because I thought i had gotten in touch with everyone that needed to know.  But my mother encouraged me to post it because 1) it was apparent I had missed people and 2) she pointed out that many of you are friends of my family.

Monday morning, one or more spineless wastes of DNA murdered my sister's husband while he changed his flat tire just off of the interstate.   Here is a newspaper article about it.

Richard had just retired and was actually taking an interest in cooking.  He wanted to impress my sister by making one of my mother's roasts with all the fixings.  My mom took Richard to Publix and they bought everything he needed.  She gave him the crash course and left him with instructions.  That is the back story on the part in the article about asking whether to set the oven on bake or broil.

The outpouring from family and friends has been greatly appreciated.

For people in Jacksonville, viewing is tonight 6-8pm at Hardage Giddens at Beach Blvd.  Services are tomorrow morning at 11am at Chets Creek Church on Hodges Blvd.

Please keep my sister, my nephew, and family in your thoughts and prayers.
