This has been a couple of busy days for us, for multiple reasons, and kind of taxing as well.
Yesterday was a memorial/funeral of a fallen Wounded Warrior we had gotten to know over the past few years. Artem Lazukin was laid to rest and will be sleeping in his blues until the end of time, and then today we learned of another death, of a father of another friend of ours. Hal Rose had been fighting liver cancer for the past 20 years, or so, and he finally succumb to it. He was almost 90 years old. Artem was 27 years. Hal also served his country and will have an honor guard at his funeral, on Sunday.
We did manage to have some enjoyable things to do, like today we went with the builder, of Jason's new house, to look at tile and counter tops. We picked out some very nice colors and designs, where I put in my opinion, and then let Jason and Linda do all the serious picking. A real nice aspect of it was that it was relatively close to our current residence, so we didn't have to do too much driving.
The rest of the days have been relaxed and some time for contemplation of life in general. I think we have been blessed by God, to have been able to enjoy the life we have and to have each other to support and help as time goes on. Tomorrow Jason is going to be taking Gracie up to her training, and I just might get a nice bike ride it. This should give Linda some free time to take care of more of the work she has been trying to get out of the way.
Soon we're going to have to start packing and identifying just exactly what we want to keep and what is going to be going with us when we move to Fallbrook. I'm both looking forward to the effort and cringing at the thought of going through all our stuff, and trying to do it in an organized manner. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.
