    To My Airbrush Family,

    Last Monday, May 21, I was waitnig at a left hand turn lane, when an out of control car slammed into my vehicle. My beautiful wife of 52 years was killed, my rescue dog was thrown from the car and has not been found yet. I, myself, was taken to intensive care with broken ribs on both sides, a lacerated liver and a concussion.

    Now that I am home, I just needed to tell my airbrush family, so I can share in the love you guys provide.

    Thanks for being there

    @Big John 1945 I am sorry and very sad to hear this news. I don't like driving anymore because there are a lot of idiots on the road anymore. You have my thoughts and prayers for your recovery but the loss will never be forgotten.

    John, I'm sorry for your loss. Sometimes it's hard to appreciate things until you don't have them. Lost my own wife of nearly 34 years about three years ago now. Know that there will be good days and sad ones for a while. Eventually, the good days will happen more and more. It just takes time.
    Get well. We're thinking of and praying for you.

    John I am so desperately sorry that you’re having to go through this unimaginable tragedy. I wish I had some wise words to offer a little comfort, but I don’t other than we are here if we can help in anyway.

    Simon.

    This is devastating news John, I really don't know what to say but I hope your poor wife didn't suffer too much pain and I will pray that God will give you the strength to get through this and leave you with nothing but fond memories of your lives together, this really is a sad day.
