Sadness

I know that this blog is usually all about knitting, but this weekend has brought great sadness to our family. Saturday morning , my sister Karen lost her husband. His death was quite unexpected, and the entire family is in shock. He was only 48, soon to turn 49. I ask that you keep Karen, her children and Tim's parents and siblings in your thoughts and prayers as they go through this trying time and that they would find strength and peace in their time of grief. I was with her this weekend to offer my love and support, there is really nothing more anyone can do at a time like this.
Again, I ask that you would keep Karen and her family in your prayers.
