Hello all my LV friends.

I have been absent for far too long and a PM came to me thanking me for my readings. This brings me back here to give you some sad news.

Many of you know I came here when my mom was going blind to find audiobooks for her. She passed away peacefully Jan 25, 2015.

Also, my 22 year old son passed away in a car accident Feb 20th with his girlfriend.

His funeral was this weekend. Life is tough!

Hug those you love every chance you get!

We are here for you.

Esther, I am sorry for your heartache.

It was a pleasure sharing reading and listening with you, and I hope we will again.

Esther, I am very sorry. I have recently had a few close relatives pass away and I know how it feels. I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

Not much to say, I'm afraid. I feel with you.

(((hugs)))
Cheers,

Thinking of you and your family, Esther.

Thank you everyone.

Both my mom and son are recorded here at LV. I did a podcast with mom years ago. I don't have the energy to search for it now but I'm sure Kara or Cori can find it.

My son was part of another podcast with his friends shouting HURRAY!

Was proud to share my family with you.
