     Soupers, it's a rough time for PD and her family. Sandy Ivy sent me a message about this tragedy; and I’m very shocked after reading it.

     PD and Royal, I just want to say that all your friends will pray to God so that you can handle the situation in the best way possible.

     Please accept my deepest condolence to you and your family in this loss.

    Ruben, when my sister told me about your blog,,, i could not help but peek in yesterday. I was in tears when I'd seen all the other blogs and the caring comments, many private soup mail.... I did not expect this comfort from you... thank you always... I wish i could say something funny right now,,, but I'll save it for next week or so... always~ Linda

    Thanks Ruben for posting the blog. I don't think irma has the time to stop by. I am sure this will comfort my family in the slightest way. I tried getting into my sis account 2 post a blog in her behalf, but couldn't. My sis will be away for a week or two. All we can do is offer our hearts and condolences. Nothing will ever bring the joy. Royal & Irma were expecting. Luv~Sidney LeeAnn
