Time For Healing
I have been away from this site for quite a while. Hurricane Irma destroyed our home on September 11, 2017. I thought we were going through a disaster then, but in December of the same year we lost my wife's dad in the most tragic, senseless way imaginable. A prank phone call sent the police to his home in the early hours of the morning. All of the details aren't clear, but before it was over he was lying on his front porch with multiple gunshot wounds from an AR-15. He did not survive.
So, after that, the destroyed house didn't seem nearly as important. It has been a long 20 months and we are still in the process of healing in many ways. Just this week we moved back onto our property and are living in a 36 foot RV. I'm not entirely sure what is going to happen next, but we are taking it one day at a time. Maybe I can get back to gardening soon. Lord knows I could use its therapeutic effects.

That's horrific news EG. Can't imagine the torment you have been going through. Hoping you make it through ok with support from others.
Thanks Frank. I've missed participating in the site's discussions, but my heart and mind have been somewhere else. We are getting through it slowly. Losing my wife's dad has been the hardest part. Dealing with the house situation has been more of an annoyance than anything. Lately I've had to cut through red tape with the county over what to do with it. Such a pain! Thanks again for the concern. It means a lot.
Praying for you and yours, EG...
My goodness and this is the first I've heard and I thought I was in bad shape but I only wish I could help.
