My wife has three sisters, all older than she is. Her oldest sister has been in a nursing home for a number of years now because of some serious health problems. Her second oldest sister called this morning to let us know that the oldest sister had passed away in her sleep last night. Her end was peaceful and pain-free, for which we are all grateful.
Funeral services will be here in Mountain Home on Friday. The sister\r\nwho called and who is handling the funeral arrangements will be\r\narriving tomorrow (Wednesday) evening. My wife and her sister will be\r\nvery busy all day Thursday getting things organized for Friday. Obviously, Friday will also be a hectic day as well.
My main responsibility for the next three days will be to keep my children, who are home from school on spring break, enterained and out of the way of the scurry of adults around here making funeral preparations. that means I will not have much time to write. I really do not know whether there will be another post before next week. I hope to get one written for the weekend, but no promises.
In the meantime, you all will have a chance to get caught up on any posts you may have missed and to make comments where you feel you have something to add to the dialogue. I will try to keep up with any comments as they come in
May the peace of God which passes all understanding watch over you and keep you safe,
John. Elizabeth, Heidi, Ian and Michael4
