Terrible news

Autos of beauty
Since this car is labeled Michelin, I guess they can afford new tires all the way around, LOL!

For today (Wednesday):
Two weeks ago we buried my first cousin. He has three brothers remaining.  At the funeral I had a chance to spend a good bit of time with my cousin Eddie the youngest of the 4 Herron boys. It had been a long time since seeing him. We enjoyed about an hour of catching up.
Now here, just two weeks later he is in an induced coma with pneumonia in both lungs and has been just diagnosed with The Coronavirus.
I still think the National Danger has been hyped by the press. But the fact still remains; it is dangerous.

This is brief, we have not had any symptoms but pass the idea of the possibility, and it is scary.
I just wanted to keep you up to date on the latest. We are far from the panic mode, but will stick around the house until we feel we are okay.  We have been out and around, it would be impossible to name everyone we have been in contact with since the funeral. We have not had a temperature, that is good.
Take care, Life is still good.

So sorry you lost your cousin but glad you had the chance to catch up with his youngest brother. Family is so important. Now, knowing you're keeping your distance for now, know that you and sweet Sherry certainly have moved up to the top of my prayer list. As for the virus, we've turned it over to the Lord who will have the last word. All we can do is pray and stay safe. You too.
love you guys from our north home to your southeast home. Virtual hugs.

That is terrible news! Hopefully you won't be affected by the contact you had with him. I'll be praying for all at the funeral, that came into contact with him and for him and his and his family too. When it strikes close to home like that it brings it up close and personal. It is dangerous and not a laughing matter at all.

I'm so sorry to read this … you and Sherry must be stunned. Prayers lifted for all.

WOW Jack! That is terrible. I really hope he recovers quick and everyone he was around will be ok. I hope you and Sherry stay free and clear. There is no way to know how many people have been around people that have this fever. Even people themselves don't know they have it until its too late.

Best wishes

I'm so so sorry Jack. I pray he will come out of the coma and get well soon.After going through our family health scare in the past few weeks I can truly sympathize with you and the worry you're experiencing. It's easy to say this is a virus that is getting too much hype but when it's a loved one it hits home in a big way. Prayers and hugs to you and Sherry and please stay in until the danger has passed.
