Friday, again.

This is the finish line of the week. Normally a happy occasion. Unfortunately, the Barco crew is making a sad trip to Tampa/St Pete; A person close to the Spousal Unit had the worst news possible on late Tuesday afternoon. A twelve year old child had been in an accident and did not make it back home.

There is nothing a person can say to mitigate the incredible grief. An entire industry in Florida has reacted, showering a shattered family with well wishes and sympathy. This is a credit to the bright youngster and the well regarded father and mother.

There will be an unscheduled trip and RON (Aviation term for remain overnight) in support of the funeral and bereaved family.

I just cannot imagine the depth of agony and feeling of loss.

Stay safe out there.

Barco Out.

When a loved one passes grief and loss are felt by all who knew him and they morn. When a child is lost a grieving follows; transcending personal ties and we all morn as though he were our own. Our deepest condolences to the family.
