Tim has been moved to his mom's house. I may still try to get to her house to see him. The dr. says quality of life is gone so things aren't looking good. Aside from a miracle it's only a matter of time before Tim loses his fight to get healthy.... Read more

My phone rang at 4:22 this morning which is always scary. It was my youngest son checking to see if we were ok. He'd already called his sister to see if they were ok. I asked if he was ok (of course) and he said yes, I am, but not the house. Fir... Read more

My son's wedding was beautiful yesterday. The weather was a perfect 75 degrees and sunny. The one glitch however, was that they were directly in the sun and shortly after the ceremony started Kyle told the minister (who is Erin's aunt) that he w... Read more
