    Hi all
    This hasn't been a very good year for me.
    I came down with pnuemonia followed by shingles and somewhere in there Robins passing. Last Monday my son in law suddenly collapsed on the job. CPR was performed, then
    the medics tride to zap him and that didn't work. My daughter took it real hard. We had the memorial this morning and the room was packed with about 100 people. He was just 61 and he and my daughter were married for 28 years.
    Checking the obituarys in the paper i noticed that most of the people passing was between 65 and 90. I guess I can thank the Lord that I am still here at 73 and my wife at 70 and been married for 53 years.

    I pray for you and your family - At 57 I read that page of the paper too - I am amazed how many under 60 I see there - I guess we all can thank our lucky stars we arn't a name on that page - I don't know how close you two were but my son-in-law and I are best friends and I sit here and think of all the great times we have and realize that we have memories!

    My thoughts of comfort to you and yours.
    Not sure if it's because my circle of friends has grown or there has just been a lot
    of sad things this year... but I agree it seems to have been a rough one.

    Drew, Steve, and Ken
    Thanks for your words of comfort.
    My Daughters Husbands family have been giving my daughter a bad time but her son,(my grandson, 27years old) told them he is taking charge and to lay off. If not they will have to answere to him.
    How is that for a son?

    I might as weil add this to a bad summer and run it into winter
    About noon today I rushed my wife to the doctors office. The Dr. admitted her to the hospital with a mild stroke on the right side.
    It is mild and we are praying for a complete recovery.
    I am so tired now I am going to bed. GOOD NIGHT ALL AND THANKS

    Now and then there are such bad times, and everything in the world seems to be against us. Like a wise man said: When you are completely down - the good thing is that every way you go always leads upward.

    In this sense I hope that you're able to keep some optimism for the future. And for your wife my best wishes for a fast and complete recovery. My thoughts of comfort are with you, your wife and daughter.

    Ron

    Yes I agree Ron, as I think in some measure we have all had our backs to the wall.

    Take one day at a time Dick.
    Praying for you and Sandy.

    Son-of-a-gun Dick, when it rains, it pours for you, doesn't it? We wish the best for your wife, and let's hope they're right and they caught it quickly enough. Tell her that everyone here is pulling for her.
