I Am Sad Today

I am sorry. Blogs shouldn't be sad. But, I have had a horrible shock yesterday. Our good friend Jim died suddenly of a heart attack. Jim was a professor at the University of Illinois. He came here for a month every summer....and made sure it was when he and his darling wife Leslie could help with the Victorian Tea and an opening night for a play at the Creede Theater. We were to go to dinner at their rental cabin tonight. He was fixing Italian food. I had picked up the pasta for him in Gunnison.. when I was at the grocery store yesterday.
Sorry...I just didn't expect this to happen...guess we never do. Jim we all loved you so!
If you have a hubby...hug him a little closer .....Janey

  3. So sorry to hear this. My thoughts are with his family. So sad. Sorry for your loss ~ it is everyone's worse nightmare. Take care. xx
