Quick Update.

Plenty more tears have been shed the past couple of days. Grandma passed away last night. Needless to say, it has been a rough time over here. Wishing we could be there to say our last words, remembering back on better times, wondering how she took she a drastic turn when she seemed just fine two weeks ago. We go from shedding tears of sorrow to tears of joy, knowing that she will be with her creator. And, wondering if there is Scrabble in Heaven.

We just booked plane tickets to head back home as the funeral is Wednesday. My brother was here for the weekend and was supposed to stay through tomorrow, but is graciously taking us to the airport as well. This has also been hard on me, as every minute I have with him is so precious.

Please pray for us. We know you are... couldn't have gotten through the past couple days without it. Thank you. We appreciate you more than you'll ever know.

Please pray for peace, comfort, safe travel, and pray that our time with John's family would be incredibly sweet. That is what Grandma would have wanted... for us all to be together celebrating her departure from a fallen world into a new life with her Heavenly Father.

Oh, Suzanne, I'm so sorry to hear the news. I know you're hurting, but I pray you will be comforted as you make the trip back home. I'm praying for you, John, and the rest of the family. Love you guys. I'm sending a big hug your way and pray that God will wrap you all in his arms during the rough days ahead.
