On November 22nd, Friday at 1:30 PM I received a telephone call from my sister-in-law. Naturally I knew something was wrong for this sister-in-law never calls my house. Crying hysterically she told me our nephew, my husbands son was killed in an automobile accident.
He went across the center line on a two lane road and hit a truck head on. It killed him instantly. The truck tried to get out of him way and overturned. My nephew hit him anyway! He was hurt and thank goodness there wasn't anyone else involved in the accident.
His service was held on Thanksgiving day in Canada. This is where he lived with his father and mother. He was the oldest of two children, he was 26 years old and just finished college where he finished with honors and received his masters degree.
Should a smart and personal person he had his whole life ahead of him but God had other plans. It's sad for the family will miss him terribly and it will take a long time for them to get on with their normal routines.
I knew him since he was six years old, a regular monster of a little boy, like all little boys can be. He was a good child, but had the mischievous ways like most boys, picked on his little sister, like most boys do! But later in life became her protector whenever she was in trouble or needed help.
He will be missed, but he will not be forgotten.
I'd like to wish everyone a wonderful Holiday Season and to be safe!

We had a book signing at the Double Tree Hotel in Deerfield Beach.Yesterday’s book signing went just great. Sheila Ray Charles was our guest at the book signing and her voice was amazing. There were four other authors besides me and the turnout for the book signing was very impressive.
Ms. Charles was there with her husband and she was available to sign her book and she also had two CDs for sale. She was very open about her childhood and heard adult lifestyle before she became married and was saved by the Lord. I think many people were very surprised at the type of life she had led the time she was a teenager until now. She sang two songs and the power behind her voice resonated throughout the room.
I have to apologize for not keeping my blog up to date but have been so very busy at work it has been impossible for me to get to it. I had planned on writing last night to let everyone know about our book signing but ended up falling asleep on the couch so therefore I am writing today. Is hard to believe that Thanksgiving is just around the corner and that we have Christmas I don’t understand where the time goes. I’m sure everyone out there feels the same way as I do. Before you know it it’ll be summer time again held be looking back saying how my goodness where did the time go.
I had to miss our mystery club luncheon yesterday because the book signing and hope that I will have to miss Decembers luncheon. Looking forward to next weekend when readers favorite will be having their dinner to honor the winners of the 2013 book contest. Which I might, add I came in third with five stars on Black Orchid. I’m looking forward to meeting other authors and celebrities that will be attending.
I’m currently working on my other book which I would like to get out in January named “End of the Trail.”
Well, that’s all for now folks will try and write more tomorrow everyone have a good evening and stay safe.
