Thank You

Hi, everyone! Welcome back to Life on the {Scrap}Beach!

I wanted to thank you for all the kind words, prayers and warm thoughts you have sent to me and to my family. It has been a rough week, but knowing there were so many warm-hearted people around the world with their thoughts on us was very comforting.

My twenty year-old cousin Rachel was hit by a drunk driver while riding her bike across her college campus. The accident was a hit and run, although the police have the driver in custody now. Her parents and her ten brothers and sisters as well as the entire rest of the family were devastated by this shocking tragedy. It has been very, very hard for us all to process.

Again, thank you very, very much for everything! We all appreciate it so very much.




  1. I wanted to send my prayers to you and the entire family. I am glad you are back. you may not know me but I have just started blogging on blogspot and are trying to get great ideas and new friends. best wishes for the week.

    Glynda and the family

  6. Almost this same thing happened to my Uncle in 2006, it was in his hometown rather than at a college. My family knows the pain your family is in right now and the long journey ahead of you for (some) resolution. You all are in our thoughts and prayers. I pray you have a safe trip home, we miss you on ning and can't wait to have you back!

  7. Thank you all so much!

    Your family has been and will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers. Hold each other tight, and may you be safe on your journey back to Florida.
