You may have noticed that I have not been posting for the last couple of weeks. On January 23rd my Stepdad, John, died suddenly in his sleep. He was only 65. He did have a history of heart trouble but this was completely unexpected. He was a kind and loving man who was part of our lives for twenty seven years, and he will be greatly missed.
I was so happy to see this event being hosted at 1 More Chapter to raise money for the American Heart Association. I will be participating in John's honor and will be pledging $10 per book up to a total of $100.
Many thanks to Michele at A Reader's Respite, where I first read about this event. To me, it is so timely and appropriate. I am glad to be able to do something tangible at this sad time.
Did you know that heart disease is the number one killer of both men and women in the United States? I hope you will join me in support for this worthy cause.
