No Words

By Barbara Falconer Newhall

I’ve got no words today. I’m out of town visiting a sick — very sick — aunt. And I’m pretty sad. The hospice nurse is not optimistic.

My mother and father are gone. Jon’s mother and father are gone. My aunt is the last of the aunts and uncles on both sides of the family.

Soon, Jon, my brothers and I will be the elders.

More to come when I get home.



  1. You could have opened my eyes today on this bless you

  2. Hi Barbara. Sad news. I hope everything goes well. Will watch for your next post. Interestingly, the “Christian Mingle” ad appeared with your blog. Trying to figure out if that’s coincidental or by design. The mysteries of computers!

      Wow! I was just commenting on the Christian Mingle “Find God’s Match for You” motto the other day. Like there is a predestined, perfect match for you out there somewhere.

  3. So sorry to hear about your Aunt. I thought elders were supposed to be wise, until Ken and I became the elders.
