Update on Us...

We've had a long couple of weeks. We'd like to express our sincere thanks to friends and family that have helped in many ways including bringing us meals and caring for the boys when needed. It has helped tremendously with lessening our stress levels.

We really worked hard last week and cleared out Bettys house. Nancy, Andy, a few other relatives and friends have really stepped up and helped us. We thank you so much! It was a lot of work and we have made good progress. A lot of her belongings have been donated to the Epilepsy Foundation and to Goodwill.

We still have a long way to go on some other matters, but we're taking it one day at a time and appreciate all the support we've received.

Today my little guy Morgan went to the doctor and he has Influenza Type A, so if you can keep him in your thoughts we'd grately appreciate it!

The boys are doing good, they still talk about Grammy and Aaron seems to reminisce about certain things/places he used to go with Grammy. We all still feel sad at times, but we know she is in a better place now.

Here are some favorite photos of Betty....

Those photo's are beautiful, and she was a beautiful lady! Thanks for posting them so we could all take a glimpse into your life with her! *Big hugs* I hope the sickness passes quickly for you all.
