a loss for our family

It is with heaviest heart that I write this to tell all of you that we at the blog plantation lost a precious friend over night. Mr. Zack Cross. As long as I can remember, he has been a friend to my family. In fact one of my parents closest friends. Every Christmas we were showered with pepper jelly and citrus fruits. He had one of the warmest souls of anyone I have ever known. Friend to all he met, and devoted to the Boy Scouts Of America, the world will be a darker place for this loss.
Please pray for his family, my parents and us at this time of loss
