    Hi Sherry,
    How are you doing? I'm doing ok. I'm anxious for spring to get here. My dad is doing pretty good. We went to see him in Dallas for a few days in Dallas the first of January. We came home to Illinois to a major ice/snow storm here in Illinois. The kids were out of school for a entire week. The assistant living facility that my dad lives in is absolutely beautiful but it is extremely expensive. Luckily, his VA benefits pay for some of it. He lives about 5 minutes from my brother's home. My brother and sister take him out alot to dinner, the movies, church, and to their kids sporting events. He is anxious for warmer weather so he can go outside more and sit on his patio. Take care, Kim

    Hi Sherry,
    How are you doing? I'm still going through this whole divorce crap still. It's been nine months and the only thing he's done so far is serving me with the papers. My dad's birthday is on Wednesday and it will also be our 20th Wedding anniversary. Not that the anniversary will probally matter to him. Our twins will turn 16 on the 19th and will be getting their driver's licenses. Yikes Take care, Kim

    Sherry, I wanted to let you know that Joe passed away last Sunday the 11th. He developed a C Diff infection and a UTI and didn't respond to the 4 antibiotics that they had him on and became septic. I didn't expect him to pass. I truly thought that he would respond to the antibiotics and I would be able to take him home but God had other plans. He wanted to be cremated and interred at the Mississippi Veteran's Cemetery so we are doing that and will have his Memorial service there this Friday the 23rd. His obituary is on the Austin and Bell Funeral Home website.

    Hi Sunewun,
    I like the user name that you picked out. How are things going for you? My dad is currently in Dallas, Texas visiting my brother and sister. My niece is in a volleyball tournament that he wants to watch. She is really good. She is only a sophomore and has had 20 colleges contact her so far wanting her to play for them. Dad seems to be holding steady right now. He just got his first power wheelchair the other day through the VA. He is slowly learning how to maneuver it. We tell him to stay clear of his pool with it. Take care, Kim

    Hi! How are things going for you? I saw where you like to read . Do you ever read Danielle Steel books? I just got done reading Until The End Of Time. It was pretty good. I also like to read some Nora Roberts, John Grishaam, and Nicholas Sparks.
    I am glad that we are finally getting warmer weather here in Central Illinois. My dad was able to get out and attend a few of our youngest son's baseball game. Dad's progression seems to be slowing down lately. You never can really tell with this darn disease. Take care of youself, Kim

    Yes, I'm doing fine. ALS just chips away. Just the same as yesterday or last week. Weaker biceps and legs since November. It is what it is. Hope you are still doing well.
