A terrible loss, family, friends and work

 Cullman,  AL

In Louisiana

In August our family suffered a terrible loss.   Our Grandson in Louisiana was diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma a year ago.   It looked for a while that through his strength and determination he beat it.   However, it was not to be.

This is the last picture he have of him when we were in Louisiana in February and we took Nathaniel to dinner.

His light shone bright.  Everyone that knew him was blessed and will never forget his hugs.

While in Louisiana in August we finally caught up with a couple we met when we lived our full time RV life.    Meet Judy and Dick that were also full-timers but have now settled in Orange, TX.

Always a pleasure to visit again with those we have met when traveling the roads.

Our Granddaughter Tiffany and her family live in Texas.   They came to the visitation for Nathaniel.  We met up with them for lunch at a Mexican restaurant.

Later that day, after the viewing we decided it was dinner time.  The group choose ANOTHER Mexican restaurant.   I looked at the menu.  It was the same as the one earlier.   Apparently we chose two Mexican restaurants that are part of the local chain

So, here is more family.   Tiffany and Neal and their kids, also daughter D'Juana and SIL Joe and their daughters, some cousins and my daughter Terri who flew down from Pennsylvania.

When in the area,  Leonard likes to visit with his Godfather Claude and his wife Vern.   Len and Claude share the same birthday and always talk on the phone that day.

Back in Alabama:

Earlier this month was the 21st birthday of our granddaughter Maddie.    Time does fly!

We are still busy with yard work now that the weather has cooled.  Still clearing brush out along the creek.

And trying to keep weeds down from around the pond.

I've  written on this blog about our love of the local Senior Center.   Every Thursday they have "special days".   This past week it was TWINS day.   We were told to find a partner and dress alike.  That's what 7 other couples did.  They had matching shirts, etc.   We went one step further.

Until next time.


  1. I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. It's never easy. You guys look terrific as twins! Bet it was fun.

  2. So very sorry for your lost. Other than that heartache life looks good. Hugs to you both 💕💙

  3. It was so cool to see the photo of Dick and I with you and Len! It was great seeing y'all, although I wish the circumstances had been different, and we look forward to the next time out paths cross.

  4. Truly Sorry of your Grandson at such a young age.
    Really liked your Twinning. Did the Mustache itch? LOL!
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.
