Last October my oldest brother Rick lost his battle to cancer. Even though we all knew things were not going well, it was still hard to believe that he wouldn't pull through and beat this horrible disease. He was an amazing brother, wonderful father to his girls and a good friend too all who knew him.
Since then I've pulled away from blogging and the internet, only going on sporadically. I've missed all of you so much but I couldn't seem to get back into the habit of blogging. I'm still reading and have some reviews that I plan to write, so don't give up on me just yet. :)
Thanks to all of you who have sent emails over the months, checking up on me and letting me know that you are there for me. You have no idea how much that means!
Before I get too teary-eyed that I can't see the screen, I'll just leave you with a quote by the author Hunter S. Thompson. This was printed out and passed around at my brother's memorial service. My brother liked it and it sums up how he lived his life.
Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "Woo Hoo" what a ride!
