At The Library

This is a donated statue that stands in front of one of the branches of the Brevard County Public Library in Melbourne, Florida. I like to go to this particular branch because of it's large selection of books when compared to some of the smaller branches.

I've always liked this statue, dedicated to the donator's grandchildren, and children everywhere.

I'm doing better today. Just a sore back from the procedure and some bad memories. Two of my fellow engineers where I work lost a daughter and a brother this week. It makes me realize that a medical procedure that doesn't go very well and causing me pain is much easier to deal with than the death of immediate family members.

My heart and prayers go out to Gary T. and his wife who lost their 21 year old daughter a few days ago in a car accident in Orlando. My heart and prayers go out to Phil C. whose brother passed away this week from pancreatic cancer at the age of 44.

So sorry to hear you've been going through a tough procedure. I'm sure every day will be a bit better.

It's so sad when tragedies hit. It makes one wonder if God really is in control. But he is.

My sympathy and prayers for your friends.
