Goodbye to two very VERY special people to me. My sister and I met Mr. P in 2005 in Columbus and began our special friendship/ business connection to Common Grounds. He was always happy. Always had some special thing he wanted us to try. Always quick to get what we needed if possible. ....
When we moved the shop to Nashville, we had the opportunity to meet Miss Joyce. And like Mr. P, she was always smiling. Loved talking with her about friends and family. Were so kind when my sister passed...
I knew they both had health issues. ( they weren't problems for them) They would tell you about them if asked, but quickly went on to happy subjects. Like their wonderful kids and grandkids....
I will miss them both very very much.
But oh how happy I am they are together with Jesus now. And can watch over their family all at once! They are in our hearts. We are so blessed to have been privileged to have them in our lives.
Until we meet again, my friends.
Say hello to my sister.
