I'm back...

and still trying to hang in there.

My dear brother is stable and doing about the same. Hospice is treating him very well, and now,..... we just wait.

I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your wishes, thoughts and prayers at this time. You can't imagine what it means to me. You are all so very, very kind. Many, many, many thanks to you.

And so, I will try to stay busy to occupy my mind.

Painting sure helps and Galen and I are getting ready for an artisans show here in March. I've been painting up a storm, and he's been busy in the shop.

I'll be around to visit everyone real soon. I'm anxious to see what you've all been up to.

Donna, I'm so sorry things are tough for you right now. It must be some comfort to know that your brother is in good hands.
I'll remember you and your family in my prayers.

Hello Donna,
hospice has a special place for us, my wife's grandfather was there before he passed away. They made every effort possible to make sure he was comfortable, and for this we are grateful. We support the yearly Hospice auction at the Lampeter fairgrounds, and I usually donate my photoraphic work for auction. And one of my wife's best friends is a nurse at hospice - Minda Bernhardt (she is up for nurse of the year!)
I hope the for the best for your family.
