Prayers Needed

After many delays, the Cat House on Wheels finally left the driveway on Thursday morning headed for Florida, or so we thought.

When we left, Jim said I am driving until the temperature goes above freezing. I didn’t think he meant literally. But he did! Finally at midnight last night we pulled into a campground in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Before heading out this morning Jim checked his voicemail. There were messages from his sister and his niece. Our brother in law, John, passed away at 1:30 this morning.

So now we have changed directions and are headed to Jacksonville, North Carolina to be with sister, Pattie, and family.

The problem is Winter Storm Helena which is moving that way also.  We are trying to beat the storm but I think everyone else is also. Traffic is absolutely horrendous.

I am reaching out to you asking for prayers, for Pattie and family, for safe travels for us and for safety for everyone in the path of winter storm Helena.



Thank you Julie for this precious photo of your daughter with O’Malley.

    J B, FYI, I read the Obit in the JDN and your brother – Law will be only a couple of clicks over to the left of where my XO Is at Monfort Point. She is at D1 106 and I’ll be over there on the 13 th for the 3rd Anniversary of her leaving me. She mustered topside 1/13/14 after 52 years by my side. FYI. Land Line 326 – 5023. I know that your time will be a tight schedule but, just wanted you to have the POC if you ever need it.
