I don’t normally post on a Sunday, but this morning I wanted to thank you for your support after my post on Friday regarding Tom & Naomi’s fire. Every comment and/or donation was greatly appreciated. The ash has settled and Tom & Naomi are considering their options on how to proceed from here. I’ll be sure to keep you all posted as their plans progress.
Also, I wanted to let you know that Mr. Q’s grandpa Bud passed away early this morning. You might expect us to be a house in mourning, but that isn’t the case. Bud had an amazing long and full life. He was always telling stories about his experiences such as helping his dad run bootleg liquor down from Canada during prohibition. He also told many tales about serving in WWII as an interpreter. Having been around for over 100 years, Bud had seen a lot. Can you imagine having been born at a time when only 35% of homes had a telephone and then living to see that come full circle to cell phones that can be taken with you everywhere eliminating the need for a home phone?
Recently though Bud was basically just patiently waiting to join his wife who passed away two years ago. When someone asked him what he thought she would say when he joined her in heaven, his answer was ‘what took you so long?‘
So rather than being sad, we are celebrating the fact that Bud has gotten his wish to join his wife and that after two years apart they are finally back together again now and can both rest in peace.
