This is a photo of my big brother Mike. Yeah, I know you can’t see his face. I treasure it cause he’s fixing my car to keep me safe before he went to fight a war to save somebody else’s families on the other side of the world.  A war he never came home from.

  3. Oh dear. VW bugs always remind me of the early seventies. In many ways, a sad time.

    1. Thanks, Debbie. Doing okay, I guess, but lots of loss in my life lately. My husband passed away very suddenly in December and I’ve sold my house and moved in with older son. Also lost both dogs in the last two years. Trying to figure out how to move forward.

      1. Oh, Diane. I am sorry to hear that. Would you like to talk––I work with clients on these kinds of things all the time. It would be a privilege to support you, as you are working through what happened and what’s next. (This would be my gift to you, and totally fine if not.)

        Let me know. Either way I am sending you a big hug. I imagine you must have so many thoughts and feelings right now. ❤
        Blessings,
        Debbie
