Benji, Ronny, Cindy, and Family,
I am very sorry to hear of Donny's passing. I thought a lot of him and Cathy both. Donny was a very smart, hardworking man. I think he could fix anything. When I worked at NCDSNB, I asked for his advice on landscaping or maintenance issues quite a few times. He always knew the answer. He will be truly missed.

Toni, and all of the Morris Family.
I'm so very sorry for another loss to your family. I know that no one truly knows what each of you is experiencing at this point, but I do have an idea. Between April 1998 and January 2000, my family lost my paternal grandmother, my Dad's oldest sister, My Dad, My Father-in-Law, and my maternal grandmother. It was at least five years before I could wrap my head around these losses. Then when I lost my dear husband, a few months later began another onslaught: one of my mother's brothers, a first cousin, and my Dad's older brother, in a three month span. So I feel I come as close as possible to understanding so much grief and heartbreak in such a short period of time. Everyone has to grieve in their own space and time ( DO NOT let anyone tell you differently or tell you to "get over it". That is SO terribly wrong and insensitive to say the least !!) My heart aches for each of you and I pray that each and every one of you will find comfort in the wonderful memories you have. It's been very important and beneficial to me and my girls that we share our memories and stories. It's what's gotten us through the even to this day, difficult times. I pray God's comforting arms will surround you all and that you continue to share those memories and pictures (also a great comfort).
Toni, I'm always here if you need me. You know where to find me.
Sending Love and Prayers to all,
