Oh...some much to review and so little time to do it, cause i am sleepy! I wanted to say a few words. July 5, 2006 was a sad day for me and my family. Two weeks prior on a Saturday, I had gone to visit my grandfather (Grandad) in Cedar Creek. He had been diagnosed with dementia and was declining rapidly. I saw him in a state of confusion, unable to speak, and he seemed to be else where. I prepared my self for the coming days, but instead received a phone call that he was doing a lot better. I was planning to attend Patterson's wedding on July 7th, but the phone call I got altered my plans. I called Patterson and nothing but consoling words and understanding from a Godly man who knew that family came first. Regrettably, I was unable to attend and take part in his wedding, but the closure that came by staying home was needed. Grandad always said, "Don't tear up the grass," and in reply to 'I love you,' "same back." These few words and many more will be with me till the day that I go home to see the Lord and be reunited with him. I thank all those for their condolences and prayers. I ask that you would continue to pray for my family. Few words turned in to many, and I only covered one topic, but that is all I have tonight.

I am learning that this grieving thing really is a long term process. Just when you think you've passed the hard part, something else will provoke a memory and it'll start all over again. Don't be afraid to lean on your friends and talk about it. That's how I'm learning to cope.

Thanks for the insight and sharing of memories.
