Our day started off like most others. Sherry & I had a great nights sleep and woke up nice and early like every morning so far. We love the going to bed early and getting up early regime. Not really into the big party scene. Enjoy a few beverages at night, but do not miss the hangovers - woohoo!! Grabbed a coffee, then a bite to eat and headed up to the golf course. Yeah, we're going for a 9-hole round. Grace & Chris were sick all night long so couldn't join us. We instead went with Ray and Jeg Jeg. When we arrived our tee off time was delayed for 30 minutes cause they had no caddies (which were mandatory). After the 30 minutes, then indicated another hour before we'd be able to hit the course so we said the heck with it. Decided to rent a trike and toured the Island. Went up to the highest peak and took some great pic's
When we got back to the room, we headed out to the beach and Colette found us. She shared some absolutely horrific news from home. We were just devastated and heartbroken to hear about our close friend and companion Karen Tomasta having passed away in a vehicle accident. Talk about shock, awe, dispair and disbelief. We had several good cries and will continue to as she was the world to us all and our friend for decades. Karen, we already miss you and just can't believe it. Why does this happen to the most generous, amazing, kind, wonderful, beautiful people? It's not fair!
I think tonight's New YEar's celebration will be short lived and not very happy. We will honour her with our hearts and souls. We love you Karen. Our hearts pour out to your kids. Still can't believe it...
To my brother....happy birthday to you. I hope you enjoy your 50th knowing this will reach you one day late. Love you and have fun!!
