Still with us...

Thank you all for the many e-mails and comments about my daddy. Your thoughts and prayers are appreciated by my whole family.

We had a very nice christmas in my parent's den. Daddy knew it was Christmas and even managed one "Merry Christmas" for everyone. He told us he enjoyed the sounds of the day and that he had really enjoyed the Midnight Mass we had on TV for him Christmas Eve.

Despite our sadness, we were able to celebrate the twin's first Christmas home. They did a great job opening presents and played with each toys for hours before they moved on to the next present! Christmas lasted ALL day long!

And I am so proud of Mason and Evan. As teenagers, it could have been a very difficult day for them as they were in "new" territory both with their Grandfather's condition as well as the focus being "off" of them for the first time in many Christmas's as everyone watched the twins. However, they came through like the remarkable young men we know them to be. They were sweet, loving and caring and we couldn't have asked for a better day!

We continue to pray with my father. He enjoys having the bible read to him. And with the incredible help of Hospice, we are trying to keep him as comfortable as possible.

I will leave you with some photos of our day.
