Rest in peace, my dear, dear brother John.
Kat, all my love to you and your daughter, Alex.

I don't have answers, but have no questions either.
The doctors just didn't have enough magic.
My heart just aches and I reach out for the arms of God and my family to get through the pain.
I wish I could have gotten there to say goodbye.
Sometimes, things just aren't meant to be.

December 7, 1956-March 10. 2011

I'll miss you, you old biker dude.

A memorial service will be held in Missouri on April 10th, 2011.


  1. Oh Cee Cee, I am so, so sorry. Praying for you all!

  2. My sympathies. Losing a brother is losing a piece of yourself. He leaves an empty space that can't be filled.

  3. Sending you hugs from Oregon, Cee Cee. You and your family are in my thoughts.

  4. It's always hard to lose a family member or a friend. We don't always understand why but then maybe we shouldn't. I lost my infant daughter(1983) and I'm sill wondering why. I guess was the way it should be. I believe we all wonder if we will see our loved ones upon our passing. It brings hope.
    My deepest sympathies and prayers to you and your family Cee Cee.

  5. My heart breaks for you CeeCee. Sending you lots of love from NorCal.

  6. I am so, so sorry Cee Cee. Please know that you are in my heart and prayers. Hugs.

  7. Oh! CeeCee I'm so sorry! My heart breaks for you!


  8. Prayers offered and the circle will expand.

  9. So sorry for your loss. We missed being at church today, so I owe you a big hug. Hope to see you next week. Take care of yourself.

  10. Bernie and I are so sorry for your loss, Carla. You and your family remain in our thoughts and prayers. My little sister passed away on March 10, 1994. There are certainly many other ways I'd prefer to mark a date we have in common, but I could not help but mention it. (((hugs)))

  11. Thanks so much everyone!
    I've never been one to question 'why', as I know we'll never know.

    Penny, thank you and Bernie so much for the beautiful card and heartfelt thoughts. Did you make the card? It's wonderful.
