Thomas Paine Said It Best

"These are the times that try men's souls"

I am sitting in a local coffee shop with many others who find themselves in the same power and no hope for any for several more days. But that seems trivial at this time.

My best friend...Danny's mother, is going to bury her father on Friday. He died September 16th, 2008 in his sleep.

Amongst all this chaos, Bob peacefully 'walked out the door'. I will never make cream puffs for him again. He loved my cream puffs.

Rest in peace Bob Heber...I loved you like a father.

I'm so sorry for your best friend and her family... And for you.

I met the man you wrote of many years ago. Though I had not seen him for decades, I remember him as funny, a treat to be around, and greatly loved by friends and family. A truly gentle man, I can only imagine his family's pain. I am very sorry for their loss.

Sincere condolences, dear.

Hoping the storm damage is cleared soon.

I See You!
