Shock...

as I bloghopped a while earlier I found mention on a friend's blog that the husband of Becky passed away on Monday. Becky found her way here via Lori, her sister. Just last week they were arranging for people to attend a tribute band concert at Sandstone; the one I referred to in my post below. The photos are still up on Lori's site...

He was 52; my age.

I know we should never take anything for granted in this life; sometimes it's so easy to get caught up in the "the whirl" of our lives that we don't take that moment to enjoy it; to savor it. We race and run and measure time in nanoseconds and begrudge ourselves slack because we should be accomplishing something.

Then, in a blink, it's gone...

May Becky and Lori and all those affected somehow find joy in remembering the kind and wonderful things Randy made happen!

I know exactly what you are talking about yet I (of all people) often forget and join the masses.

I am so sad to hear news like this. My thoughts are with them and their family.
