    We had the memorial service/celebration of life for a very near and dear member of my church today. I just called him "Grandpa." So did about half of my church. No, we aren't really related, but since I never knew my biological grandpas, I've always said he was the closest I had. He was already ready with a smile and a hug, and Sundays just weren't the same (and won't be the same) without a Grandpa hug. Grandpa, I'll see you again one day. Then we'll finally resolve our accumulating "hug debt."

    I can't really go into details about the situation because we have been asked to keep things quiet right now, but we received some very bad news on the drive home Saturday. Our family, friends, and community are grieving. Please pray for us all, especially the children.

    Also, I'm sorry I haven't reported back on some stuff I said I would over on the Universal boards.

    Thanks Dan. There was a memorial yesterday. It was really hard on everyone, especially the girls. It's a comfort to know there are people praying. I don't think this is going to be over anytime soon.

    From TN



    Hi Gigi. I will keep Barbara and her family in my prayers. I know how hard it can be in that situation for everyone.

    MIL passed away last Friday while we were on a cruise.
    DH, DS and DDIL left for the drive yesterday, funeral is today. They will come back Sunday.
    She is in a better place. She's been in assisted living for a couple of years with dementia.

    Prayer request please.

    My hubby has been out of work for a few months and has had 3 job interviews with Company X and is their top choice right now. Please pray that he gets the job offer!

    Wishing your hubby best wishes in that job search, Lisa, he'll be in my prayers. You and your family also. Being out of work is rough on everyone. :hug:'s

    Please add my mum, Paula & my Uncle Bill to your prayer list. There was an accident in my mother's house and they have been hospitalized due to carbon monoxide poisoning. From what information I have received, it sounds like my mum was worse than my uncle. They are currently at UCSD Med Ctr and both have been through a session in their hyperbaric chamber. My mum was intubated at first and my uncle wasn't, but both are on oxygen. My mum is awake and somewhat coherent according to my brother. Thankfully he lives near her and with them being at UCSD, it is even better as he actually lives in San Diego. One of my cousins is down for my uncle. Since he is a doctor, he can get a bit more information about the two of them.

    My mum was just up visiting my uncle for a week and then he came down with her for three weeks. My mum was doing so much better since she put my dad in a home for his Alzheimer's. Her health had really gone down hill because she was his sole caretaker. She had really turned around since November. I was in the process of making travel plans for June to see her. I will definitely be going now.

    Thank you.

    Good wishes and prayers, Mimi, for both Paula and Bill. CO is so dangerous. Looking for a full recovery for both.
