Sad news and thoughts

Posted by on August 8, 2012 at 3:10 PM

It is a sad day today here on our farm. We received word that a dairy farmer friend of ours lost his life in a tragic farming accident. They aren’t sure how it happened, but all we know is that he is gone. I reflect back on several times that we have gotten together with him and his wife. We went on a vacation to Ohio several years ago and made it a point to stop and go out for supper with them. This is the first time that we ever ate alligator. We attended many farm meeting that he was at. I was on an executive committee of one of our national farm organizations with him and we supported each other on dairy issues. This past weekend my husband and I went on a short overnight get away and we were within 60 miles or so of our friend’s farm. I mentioned to my husband that we weren’t that far away maybe we should pop over but it was late in the day and we had traveled three quarters of the way across Pennsylvania as it was so we decided maybe we could another time. Thinking back, I wish we would have taken the time to pop in. You never know when a life will be cut short. So if you take anything out of this little paragraph, never put off to another time something that you can do today. You never know how much time God has for you left on this earth.
