Title: Regarding my absence....
Post by: Red on July 11, 2016, 11:29:37 AM
Hey guys, been a while. As some of the FL crew were aware, my wife and I had to take in her mother, after she was diagnosed with small cell lung cancer. She moved in with us last June, with a 6 month diagnosis. We took care of her for 13 months, and sadly, she passed away on Friday. It was very trying, and demanding from both of us. It was like a full time job, on top of our regular full time jobs.

Anywho, this is why I haven't been around, I just haven't had time. Its been 7 months since I touched a tool for making knives, but over the next few weeks as things transition back to normal, I should be getting back into the game. My apologies to all those who have been waiting on various projects from me, please know that I will make good on all of them. We just need a little more time for things to settle down. I appreciate your patience, and look forward to jumping back into the community here ASAP!! :thumbsup:

That has to have been difficult. Losing family is always the hardest. But you and your wife did right by her mother. I know when it is my time to go I want to be surrounded by family.

Nevertheless it is good to hear from you.

Sorry for Alicia's and your loss.  You two take care of each other and the rest will take care of itself.  If you need anything just holler.

Sorry doesn't mean much I suppose, but I hope you and your wife find some good in this past year caring for her mom.
We all go through it and should never need to apologise for caring for our families.
Good luck,
Yeo
