    My friend Brenda is wonderful, we have been friends for several years, been through some rough patches but are still friends. Her husband, John , broke his ankle last week and was in the hospital, for some reason (I am not totally clear on this yet) they ended up doing a Triple Bypass a couple of days ago on John. I got on FaceBook last night and was catching up and read a post from the youngest daughter. I read it 3 times before it sunk in.

    John passed away suddenly yesterday! [​IMG] He had some health problems but this was so totally out of left field. I was able to talk to Brenda last night, right now, she is in shock as well. I just can't even fathom going through something like this. She has a long long road ahead of her. John will be taken back to Texas to be buried beside his parents.

    Please Keep Brenda, Katie & Shannon in your prayers. John held the family together and now they are going to have to deal with this and keep going.

    I am so sorry for their loss. I hope they have a strong faith. They will need it to get thru.

    Thanks everyone! I told them to call no matter what time if they needed anything. I live about 2 hours from them, but I would be there anytime.
