Two weeks ago today John got a call that a good friend of his had died in a car accident. John was devastated. He had known Tyson since they were in junior league bowling together in grade school. I've known Ty since I was a senior in High School and worked with him at Godfather's Pizza in New Ulm.
John and Ty have bowled in lots and lots of tournaments together and on league together for years. We found pictures from when they had gone to National Tournaments way back before John and I were married.

John and I both grieve for the family left behind. Yes, we will miss Tyson but we both feel terrible for the loved ones. Especially when there are kids involved. They are so young and forever is a difficult concept to understand. Tyson was a great bowler, Son, Father, brother and Friend. There were many tears shed at his funeral and he will definitely be missed.
John commented to me after the funeral that he didn't want to bury a friend again for a long time. I so agree!
On top of this we lost a dear friend at work. Our CFO, Jim Guldan, passed away after a very short battle with Cancer. I have reported directly and indirectly to him for the last 5 years. He was an amazing man. Caring, compassionate, extremely hard working and very dedicated. On top of being the CFO, a Husband, Dad and Grandpa he was an ordained Deacon in the Catholic Church. He was a wonderful example of a strong faith.
We are gone to Nick's Baseball Tournament this weekend. It feels good to sit and relax while cheering for a great team. More updates this weekend. Be sure to check back!!
