Hey everyone, I'm back and I see I have lots of catching up to do.  Ray's grandpa was diagnosed with cancer last Monday; on Friday afternoon we got the call that he had taken a turn for the worst and only had a few days left at most.  We immediately hopped in the truck with Ray's sister and drove 21 hours to Halifax, and were lucky enough to get there in time to say our goodbyes.  He passed away early Sunday morning. 

It has been a long, stressful and sad weekend for all of us, eased a little by the time spent with the family (all the aunts and uncles and a few other cousins flew out there as well).  We're home now, and taking a day to unwind...I just wanted to fill you guys in on where I've been and what's been going on.

I also know what your going through. I lost my grandpa 2 years now and it's still painful. I had cancer everywhere. His kidneys, brain, and other places as well. I can't remember exactly but treatment wouldn't of done any good. ;(

Thanks guys, you all know we appreciate all the thoughts and prayers!  We are just happy we were able to see him and talk with him before the end; Ray got a lot of closure from that.  He didn't suffer or experience much pain, which we are grateful for.  He was a very kind, personable man who will be greatly missed.

What a coincidence... My friend, an older brother I never had, died early morning September 4th last year... This year, my old tom-cat Mark died...

Best well-wishes, SweetPea.
