We are greatly humbled with the outpouring of prayers, words of sympathy and encouragement extended to us at the death of our 45-year-old brother. Yesterday (Thursday) we assisted our sister-in-law in planning the service to celebrate John’s life.
As is the custom in the United States, on Friday evening the family will welcome friends and relatives to visit at the church for several hours where we will share our remembrances. Saturday morning we will celebrate John’s life at a church service. The next two days will be difficult and your continued prayers are appreciated.

August 30, 1975. The day of the disappearance. The day Somerset, New Hampshire, lost its innocence.
That summer, struggling author Harry Quebert fell in love with fifteen-year-old Nola Kellergan. Thirty-three years later, her body is dug up from his yard, along with a manuscript copy of the novel that made him a household name. Quebert is the only suspect.
Marcus Goldman – Quebert’s most gifted protégé – throws off his writer’s block to clear his mentor’s name. Solving the case and penning a new bestseller soon merge into one. As his book begins to take on a life of its own, the nation is gripped by the mystery of ‘The Girl Who Touched the Heart of America’.
But with Nola, in death as in life, nothing is ever as it seems.

But four years later, Norman Church’s widow is taking Bosch to court, accusing him of killing the wrong man. To make matters worse, Bosch has just received a note, eerily reminiscent of the ones the Dollmaker used to taunt him with, giving him a location where a body can be found.

Our hearts are broken
The two ladies who bring you this blog of cheap reads are sisters. Suddenly yesterday afternoon our 45-year-old brother John suffered a fatal massive heart attack. Our loss is great; our hearts are broken.
John worked for years at the local General Motors dealership, managing the parts department and body shop and most recently in sales.
He served in his state’s National Guard for 27 years; including deployments in Afghanistan and Kosovo. John had a wide circle of friends and knew just about everyone in his hometown.
His family lived with our 95-year-old father. John tended the cattle and all things around the farm so Dad could continue to live there.
John’s wife of just a few years is devastated as are his children and step-children. If you are a praying person, please pray for his widow Sherrilyn and his children Jessi, James, Sara and Abby. Please pray for Dad, too.
I’ve taken the comment moderation off so that you can post without my approval. I’m sorry if spam comes through. The site may be a bit shortened the next few days as our family gathers to cry, remember and grieve together.
