Enjoying Daughter & Family

We are having a great time with our grand kids, Nicholas & Noah. They stayed at the camper on Friday night with Pappa & Grandma. We had a birthday party for Daddy Tom on Sunday with his family. It was a beautiful day. I have several pictures to share whenever we get back to Internet with our computer.

Today I am on my daughter's computer at her house. I'm not feeling much like writing so I will keep it very short. I just wanted to let you all know we got to Maryland fine last Thursday and all is well with us.

It is with a heavy heart that I read my emails & answered my phone early this morning. My sister, Romayne, called to tell me that my dear friend Cindy's father had passed away on Saturday in Jamestown, NY. I wish I could give her a hug!

Then I read my emails & the first was from my former boss, Bobbie. She wrote to inform me that my former coworker, John, had also passed away on Sat. from a heart attack. My composure just shattered! I kept telling him to RETIRE & he wouldn't listen! He just kept telling me soon. May God hold his family in His arms! Wish I could give Tomi & the kids a hug too!

Next I read the update for Reinard's adoption. Aaron & Marjorie have returned from Ethiopia with little Tobiah, but after many plane delays & arriving in Pittsburgh, he has spiked a fever & can't get it down. They are worried about which to choose - ER or Children's Hospital and their insurance. I said choose Children's or whatever Mom, the Nurse, recommends. And don't worry about the insurance, God will provide, He always comes through!

Please keep all of us in your prayers. It is so hard to be away from home base at times like these. Our friends & coworkers become our family so easily!

Will write again at a later date.

Until next time.......The Traveling Cardinal's
