Nothing like a death in the family to distract from a cancer diagnosis! We have been very busy with lots of phone calls and then between phone calls trying to blank our minds, forget it all (or put it into some kind of order) and get some rest. One thing Dave and I did in the last few days was make a handwritten will (which is legal even if un-witnessed in PA) and make 3 copies of it, one for each of our kids. There are big problems with the will that Dave's brother wrote (part of the reason there are so many phone calls) and we do not want anything like that to happen when we die. I just this morning copied our will and put the copies into envelopes to give to the kids. It is bad enough dealing with grief without adding all kinds of drama. Today we will be busy with the funeral and tomorrow I see the surgeon - finally I will know more and hopefully learn the next step.

Here is a photo that I liked of Bruce. Taken a few years ago while on a fishing trip to the Atlantic with Dave and a friend. Bruce's beloved dog Maggie was still alive then - she went everywhere with him.

If such a thing is true then they are together now.

PS - thank you all for your recent kind words and good wishes. I just haven't had many words lately.

It's hard to lose a family member.

Also sending big hugs to you and lots of good thoughts.

That also reminds me that I need to write a will. Gyro didn't need to and everything went through smoothly, but I own my own house, so need to do something. Although it will be divided evenly between all six of my kids. There's just the little things after that.

If there is such a thing, then Bruce and Maggie are together again, now.

I guess Bruce passed away looking forward to doing one of his pleasurable things, and that's got to be a consolation.
