Hello Ladies-

I just found out that my DH's grandfather past away this morning. He was 84 and at the end of April, he had a mild stroke. While in the hospital from his stroke we found out that he had cancer around his voicebox. He had started chemo and his white blood count went extremely low. He was in the hosptial until late June when he was finally able to go to a Nursing Home/Rehab Center.

Please keep my husbands grandmother (who has macular degeneration and can't see nor drive anymore) and his mother in your thoughts and prayers. I know this has most likely upset Nana very much! His mother is returning to Huntsville, Alabama this afternoon to be with her. She will probally be there for a few weeks.

Thanks,

Christina

Thank you all! We could really use them right now. DH and I think that Papa (DH grandfather) just gave up the fight because he was in the Army and the Navy and he never backed down easily. We think that since he wasn't the caregiver anymore, he just gave up.

We don't know what will happen next, but we (DH and I) won't be able to be there for the funeral because of our jobs and our vacation (in 2 weeks) we have planned that is now mostly paid for and we just can't afford $800 dollar airplane tickets for each of us. We think that Nana will be moving here to Texas which will be great in the long run, but she will miss all of her friends.

Thanks for all the support and prayers! It's good to have such nice southern friends!!!!

Christina (and Tony too)

Thank you all! Funeral was Friday and then they had a private burial Saturday (just Nana, MIL and FIL). We sent flowers in liew of us being there. They had the Army Chaplin do the ceremony and they also had a gun salute (not sure if it was 21 or not). They folded up the flag and gave it to Nana. MIL said that many parts of the funeral brought tears to their eyes. FIL made copies and enlargements of a photo of Nana and Papa from early on in their relationship to put at the front of the place they had the ceremony. Almost 30 of their friends and neighbors were able to attend so I am sure that made Nana feel good too.

Thanks for all the great support! I haven't known them that long (4 of the 5 years DH and I have been together), but I feel like have been in DH's family forever. Unfortionately I had never met his grandfather, but he seemed like a really nice man.

Thanks again everyone!
Christina
