A Bittersweet Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.  We have much to be thankful for even though our year has not gone exactly as we thought it would.

Steve lost his job earlier in the year and since the company went bankrupt, COBRA health insurance benefits became null and void.  Locating a job in this economy has been quite difficult.  So Steve and I put our heads together and started a manufacturers rep business, Efficient Technologies Group.  We received our first order yesterday.  Yippee!

Though we are not as financially stable as we once were, we have our family and health to be thankful for.  Our holiday became bittersweet upon receiving a call that our good friend, Jonelle, passed away this morning.

We have such fond memories of Jonelle. She and her husband were the first couple we had dinner with during our relocation to Georgia.

Jim 'N Nick's Bar-B-Q will not be the same without you, Jonelle.  We roared when we were together!  Our laughter was so loud, the men would tell us to "calm down".  We were embarrassing them.  Tee-hee!

We will miss you much, Jonelle. You had a long battle and fought a good fight. RIP, Sweetie, and our deepest sympathy to your husband, Rick, and families.  oxoxoxox
