Now There are Six

John's parents had four children over 14 years. In 1968 John's brother Tim was the last of the four to wed, marrying Diane Marie Hutton. Since then the four brothers and sisters and spouses have been through a lot of fun, companionship, support, sadness and stress. The sadness returned Friday night when Diane died, less than a year after sister Cindy's husband John died.

Tim and Diane were the best of friends and constant companions during their 48 years of marriage. Now we are waiting to find out the funeral service details.

Tim called us Saturday morning about the death and yesterday we moved from Creede to Canon City to be with him. John will be conducting the funeral. We will be here at least until Saturday.


  1. Sorry about the lose of your family member. As we age that is the one aspect of life that becomes more predominant. Our condolences to the entire family.

    It's about time.

    1. Thank you. It happens more and more often, doesn't it? We have to enjoy each encounter with those we love, before it's too late.

  2. Our condolences to you both and your family.

  3. So sorry for your loss and we send our sympathy to all.
