A Little Time Away

“Go for it now. The future is promised to no one.” ~ Wayne Dyer

My brother, Eric, unexpectedly died on Sunday. At 51 years old, he was taken too soon. His wife, Karen, and friends live in the Los Angeles area. I will be traveling there later this week.

Please keep my brother and his wife in your prayers. While we are still seeking answers, we do know this: we all love Eric and know his soul is at peace.

If there are fences to mend, people to call, love to be shared, be sure to do it today; do it right now.

I will see you back here next week.

  • Alex, my heartfelt condolences on your heartbreaking news. At times like this nothing else matters other than coming together with family and loved ones to grieve and console each other on the loss. I send you all prayers and love and may Eric rest in the loving peace of heaven.

  • Hi Alex,
    I only just “met” you when you commented on my guest post at Angela’s blog, but my heart skipped a beat when I read this. I am so sorry for your loss. I lost a brother suddenly a few years back as well, and I know it stings. Thanks for the reminder of how fleeting — and precious — life is.
