If you don't mind, I'm going to attach the first two weeks of January to the end of 2007 and begin 2008 mid-month. We received word this morning that my fil passed away at five am. He would not accept that he had cancer and refused treatment of any kind. So between the pneumonia (which is how they found the cancer), two heart attacks, and the five to six strokes, he had his way.
Thank you to everyone who shared in my grief these last few months. You've been great.
