Back to Alaska

My beloved brother-in-law, George, lost his middle brother Kody in a tragic boating accident Wednesday, June 10th. Crystal and I were ticketed to leave Alaska that day and we headed back to their home in Escondido, CA. On Thursday George's mother, Darla, flew down from Alaska and on Friday we all boarded a plane and headed north.

It's heartbreaking.

Thankfully I am able to be with them, help out with the kids and handle a few of the logistics. Mainly it's just good to be around and lend a helping hand when needed.

I don't have regular internet access, so this is just a quick update. We'll head back to San Diego/Escondido next week -between Friday and Monday. In the mean time we're managing. Many, many thanks to the Colliander family and George's family for there amazing hospitality and love.

Please keep George, Crystal and the kids, George's parents Kelly and Darla, his youngest brother, Shawn, and Kody's long time girlfriend, Sara, in your prayers.
