Checking In

And that is about all I am doing today friends. We had a nice time at Grimmwood enjoying the scenery, family and friends. I had an opportunity to meet up with a Morris cousin and we compared our genealogy finds.  Kelly is such a sweet girl and has done lots of family research on our common lines, the Morris and Kincaid family.  We both get excited just talking about genealogy.

We had to come home a day early as Ben lost one of his best friends on Thursday.  Brandon was a young man we have known since the boys were in middle school at Cornerstone Christian School. Brandon was Ben's roommate before Ben got married and Brandon went on the mission field to Morocco.  We do not know the cause of his death as of yet. He did not feel well, laid down and just stopped breathing.  Please remember the Smith family in your prayers. Brandon was an only child and my heart aches for his parents.  We kept the Grimmlins so Ben and Katy could attend the funeral.

This year has certainly been a hard one for many families. I am praying the second half of 2020 is better than the first half.  I will be back on Wednesday with a cheerier post.

Prayers for the Smith family and for Ben. It's hard to lose loved ones when they are old and have had a good life but even more hard when we lose young people too soon. So sad. I'm glad you got away for the weekend and had some good friends and family time!
