And On Another Note... Happy and Sad..

Mrs. S passed away Wednesday from lung cancer. Thank you all for sending happy thoughts her way. I am certain it was for the best, because the disease was advanced and there wasn't much hope. But I would never tell her family that. And the world is a darker place without her in it.

Last week's family vacation went fairly well. DSD's daughter dotes on Grandson #1 (GS1) and he is precious. I see issues with the way she doesn't dote on Granddaughter #1 (GD1) or Granddaughter #2 (GD2) and I (as well as my mom and DSD's mom) all remarked on it. They are her stepdaughters, but their mother is gone (car accident in 2007) so she is all they have. And they are delightful girls.

Still, the water park, and snorkeling in the Gulf, and swimming in the pool went well. We ate like Kings and Queens, and we were able to visit more than we have before. I do have pictures.. and videos.. as soon as I figure out how to get them off of my phone.

Hug those you love and let them know it, no one is promised tomorrow.

Sorry to hear about anyone's death. A sad post, for sure.

As to your photos on your phone...I had the same problem, and finally figured out that I could send them in a message to anyone with a smart phone. Then they simply email them to me (in my case, my wife). Works.

Thank you all! The funeral was lovely, although a little too concerned about my relationship with Jesus, but it wasn't horribly sad.

jadej, the files are too large to message or email. I HAVE a smart phone. :-( I just have to remember to plug it in and try to find them!
