Thanks ALL for thoughts and prayers,
Asia made it Wed in time for viewing after quite a battle, but had to leave Thursday night after funeral be back for Friday classes and then the long Labor Day weekend. We were hoping she could stay. She got yelled at. Just hoping this doesn't make her last year miserable. She is quite devastated by losing her Popo and worries about me not getting back quite in time to be with him.
Mike would have been impressed by the turnout and all the military honors. The Patriot Guard was there both days, honor guard, 21 gun salute......all that stuff. It was amazing how many people he had touched, mentored, lead, cared for, taught, etc. over the last 36 years here. He was a quiet leader who didn't need to lead. He was quite willing to be the "private" if he needed to be.
I'm finally alone and down from 5 dogs to 2. Son from Atlanta left today. Haven't done too much of the legal stuff, except forced to by a lightning strike very near. All electrical type stuff - TV receiver, computer, modem, telephone, etc. the ups and down of that was having to tell them it was just me now. The face to face was the hardest. As Jitters and Beejane and others know, there are sudden dips and reminders that come on suddenly. Still a long road as I start just doing the basic legal stuff. Our investment guy is going to sit with me Thursday and do the calls and let me verify as necessary. Mike's company computer geeks are putting the saved hard drive in another computer. The issue there was Mike was updating his spread sheet of information that I hadn't seen yet.
I hoping the final bump for now is my son just got back in to Atlanta area and one of his only 3 week old tires flew off across 3 of the 6 lanes. Landed in the median without hitting anyone or causing any more traffic issues then Atlanta already has. He called from the side of the road just about at the end of his ability to handle anything more.
Smo1 hope you get results soon, nhwife, tednsal, littlenm, Zimac(dreamer44, silverlace, WW, Beejane's, just all of you) hope your husbands can avoid the pain and devastation of this disease as long as possible. Jitters we are on this new road. Hoping all your health issues and bumps are minimal. Gunfighter, Peter, Southern Comfort thoughts and hugs for being here for us too.
Been thinking of you all and thanks for allowing me in your lives.
