A New Year.....

- - - I'm a tad late in wishing ya'll a Happy New Year - - -
We've been a bit busy around here as my sweet mother in law went through a very long process of dying.
Alzheimer's can be a cruel beast, along with congestive heart failure and other things. 
At least she was blessed to pass at home around her family.

She went to dance with Jesus at the tender age of 85, in the early morning hours of January 5th.
This was such an amazing woman... she had a kind of quiet strength. However as her boys tell it, she could wield a mean broom to shoo them out of her kitchen when they were young'uns!

And her Faith - if I could get halfway to where she was I'd be honored and truly blessed! I'm a work in progress! :o)
She raised four boys to be wonderful men of God, one of which, I'm proud to be married to for 25 years.
We will miss you!
