Quiet Here.



Pure Florida will go quiet for a few days.


Life is a mix of bright and dark, joy and tragedy, and it is our turn on the dark tragic side.

This has been a week of deep sorrow and pain as we mourned the loss of a beautiful young niece who was killed in a car accident Sunday night.

It's time for us to formally gather together as a family, remember a sweet young girl, and comfort each other.

So, I'll let Pure Florida rest while we do that for each other and work through our shared pain.


Y'all be careful, tell the people you love that you love them, and remember each day ... each breath is a gift.


I'll be back when I'm done.

FC-
Our deepest sympathy to you, Liz and the kids. I'm really sorry to hear of your loss. Sometimes life just doesn't seem fair, but there's always a reason for what He chooses to do. Take care,
Love,
Lightnin
