Well, it has been a few days since my last post, and I figured it was time to get an update out, so that everyone can "know" what is going on.

First, Jason is doing well, and from what we have been told, he is doing quiet well right now, and his wounds are continuing to heal. The reason I word it that way, is because we (Linda and I) are up in Livermore right now. We asked Joselynn B. and Joyce O. to come in and help out, while we were gone, and from what we have heard they have both done an outstanding job of assisting Jason, and the girls. Linda and I came up to Livermore to take care of some personal business, such as getting our taxes done and selling our house. Yes, our Livermore house is now on the market and we just have to hope that the market will continue to be active. We have a good Realtor, John C. and he has assured us that it really shouldn't take too long to get the house to sell.

While here we also met with some friends that we haven't seen in quite a while, and we all went on a nature hike through Sycamore Grove - one of the local parks. Carol E. led the hike and pointed out a number of things for us, and even got us close enough to do some bird watching. We saw a Great Horned Owl, as well as several other birds. The wild turkeys were all out and the males were strutting their stuff, and showing off their tail feathers - it looked very cool. After the hike, Carol and her husband Rick took us to lunch. Huge and Julie also took us to lunch yesterday, and they were a part of the same group. We didn't get to see all the friends we wanted to see, but we only had so much time, and we're going to have to leave tomorrow.

Last night we were over and Mike and Karen's for dinner and saw other friends, like Judy and Joe there and tonight we had dinner with Frank and Kris. We probably should have allocated a few more days to this trip, but we need to get back down, so after church tomorrow we're heading back down to Southern California and we plan to stop at our son David's home, to see his family. It will be a good resting point for us anyway, and then we'll head back to our home with Jason. It has been a good trip for us, to give us a chance to say good-bye to Livermore and our house, and it feels more like we have some closure on this, this time.

Next time we come up we hope to get some time to visit with our son Sean, and more time to spend with our other son George. We did get to visit with George and helped him get a new phone, and he seemed to have a good time with us, as we did some running around and finally we took him to go see the new Superman vs. Batman movie. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.


  1. It was so great to see you at church this morning! And even better that I had the opportunity to visit with both of you for a few minutes. Safe travels!

  2. Glad all's going well with Jason and that you're making the most of your trip up there!
    Jesus went through it all for you! Know that I'm here praying!
    Isaiah 53:4-6 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
