Riding alongside the historic Route 66 near St. Louis with my parents after burial of my aunt's ashes. Sad but yet

  1. Joel--My sympathies on the loss of your aunt. It's never easy losing someone you love.

    Praying for you and your family...

  2. Joel,
    I'm sorry for your loss. My heart and prayers are with you and your family, my dear brother. Safe travels.

  3. Sorry to hear about your aunt's passing. I will pray for you and your family.

    I had to take an extended business trip to Utah one time and drove out there I70-I80 and so forth. I had plans for the return trip to trace Route 66 as closely as I could...I changed my mind at the last minute and came back the same way I went out. I still regret it...who knows; maybe another opportunity will present itself.

    Take care,

  4. Thanks, everyone, for your condolences. My aunt was 90+ years old and was very close to my mom, who is several years younger (though I won't say how much... lol). My aunt had lived a very healthy life and was suddenly diagnosed with lung cancer and before we knew it she was gone.


    Yeah, there's just something about the historic Route 66. As many times as I've been near it, I think I've only actually traveled on it once. Today on a long stretch of a 4 lane highway we were able to look over and see quite a bit of it.

    It's one of those things that isn't necessarily practical for a long journey, so I can understand you changing your mind, but if a person has a bit of extra time it can be a fun thing to do.

  5. Joel,
    Sorry for your loss. My prayers for you and your family.
