We Need A Few Days

Join us in good thoughts and prayers

Dear TTH Fans:

Hu-Dad here. On Saturday, we tragically lost my brother-in-law. The sudden and unexpected end of his life has devastated us all—his parents, his sister and her family, his extended family, his many friends.

My own sister is reeling from the loss of her rock and partner. My Super Nephew… I don’t even have words. “Life’s not fair” doesn’t adequately explain to a thirteen-year-old that his dad is never coming home.

So pardon us, but we need a few days. We’ll be back.

    This is incredibly sad news. I do feel for your entire family and your nephew at 13, a pivotal age, is especially hard hit. You give us so much pleasure via the Herd in the midst of so much troubling news on a daily basis. Is there something we your fans, can do to honor your brother-in-law such as a charity he and your sister support?
