Thankful Thursday – Glad to have known 2 great people!

My 4th of July started out with receiving some horrible news that my husband’s line brother had passed. This guy was the epitome of a great man! A husband, father, son, brother, fraternity brother and was someone I considered a friend. My heart goes out to his family. I could not begin to imagine what his wife was going through, his children, his friends. It was such a shock and still is and I just know the effect it is having on my husband and his line brothers, to see grown men emotional is so heart breaking. I know Reggie is in a better place. Thank you bro for being my voice of reason when I was 2 seconds away from Snapped, LOL! Rest in Heaven.

Then on Thursday, I received more disturbing news, I learned a young lady had passed on Tuesday. The sad thing is the public didn’t find out until Thursday, that’s when her name was released here.

I met Nancy initially at the our first Magic City Black Expo years ago, she was selling her art work and I immediately made a purchase and am now determined to get it hung in my home. We often ran into each other, realizing we had mutual friends. My friend wrote a beautiful article on this talented and passionate young lady! Rest in eternal peace!

And these two deaths were on top of a good friend losing his Mom as well. So, I’ve been taking inventory of my life, even asking family members is their life insurance in order. I have a Will on my list of things to do ASAP. I know this is the order of life, but it’s a lot and I’m trying. Please tell your loved ones and friends you love them! Please! Tomorrow is not promised!
