As so many people know, my father-in-law was diaognosed with Mylodisplaysia last November and he has been battling the disease ever since. It has been a long road, but since he has been in St. Louis at Barnes Jewish Hospital things are looking up. I know he can win this fight and through prayer and support I know he's going to be just fine. God has a bigger plan for him!
This September my Grandfather passed away at 93, he would have been 94 yesterday. Not even a month later on October 13, his wife of 69 years, and my Grandmother followed him to Heaven. They are now together again after only 20 days apart. Both of my Grandparents were a big part of my life and I miss them dearly. I am just now beginning to see characteristics in myself that were also characteristics of their personalities.
We skipped the Trick-or-treating this year because we figured he was too young, but next year definitely! While I was on my way home from work on Halloween night I was thinking Jackson's Halloween costume and I remembered that I had gotten a little Halloween themed outfit for him that he had never worn. I had the great idea of getting some family photos outside in our backyard in lieu of Trick-or-Treating. We got some pretty good pictures thanks to my sweet Mother-in-Law!
