Hard Times

As some of you know, my Grandma Bossert passed away recently, and I flew home for 4 days for the funeral and wake. She was 90, and in the end, was in pain. It went very quickly, right around a month from the real decline to her death on April 15th. I am finding it very difficult as we spent quite a bit of time as children with this side of the family. I am so glad I was able to talk with her on the phone before she went into the hospital.
So, I am very tired. 4 day trips to America are never easy, adding to that the funeral and interesting family dynamics...I feel I could sleep for a week. I know my mum feels that way too.
If you could pray for my mom and her family, they now have to go through Grandma's things, and that can/will be difficult.
On the very bright side, I got to see my nieces and nephew...they are so cute, and getting cuter! I got to meet Molly and Anna...and they both like me alot!!! It was great to get to play, and I am looking forward to out trip in June/July. Thank you for your thoughts and e-mails. I have been a bit slow in responding....Have a great day!

Our roommates!

Oh Happy Day! We have 4 new roommates to introduce to you...For Christmas, Peter received a fish tank, and a while later we purchased 3 goldfish and 1 bottom feeder. It has been a very exciting time...As most of you know, my side of the family has been producing alot of grandkids for my parents, and naturally there is a bit of pressure. So, we took the matter in our own hands and got the fish!!! no more pressure!!! hee hee I am really just kidding, my parents and family are easy on us!
The three goldfish are Sophie (she is mine), Erwin, and Huck; and the bottom feeder is Duke. I am not a big fan of Duke as he is a bit of a wierdo...
Anyway, I just wanted to show you our new 'kids.' Have a wonderful Easter!
