Hi everyone. I just wanted to let everyone know that I am not going to be on LEF until probably next week, I know I'm not that important but I didnt want anyone thinking I was leaving the forum. I got a phone call from my parents at about 1:30 this morning that my Grandfather found my Grandmother on the basement floor and she had passed on. I will be spending alot of time with my family and mostly my grandfather at this time as it has been very very hard on him. So I will be taking a hiatus from LEF and from my previously scheduled life to be with my family and to try to find some peace with myself. No worries however, I will be back.What I say is my opinion, not my employers or that of my academic institution.

Firstly, I'm sorry for your loss. That being said, it's time for nitestokker to mess with you. Your location is South Dakota/Minnesota. WTF is up with that? You can either be a rabbit choker or a hockey player. You cannot live in both places at once. Also, if you live in the Great White North, why do you have a Texas Longhorns flag as an avatar? C'mon now. Fess up!

Condolences, Lynn.And Shepards we shall be,
for thee, My Lord, for thee,
Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
And teeming with souls will it ever be.

Well I am back earlier than I planned, whether you like it or not The funeral was yesterday and most of the family and friends that wanted to visit were over yesterday after the funeral. I am still kind of in shock but my grandpa is doing better, still not as well as we would like but my mom is over helping him go through bills and figure all the legal stuff out. My grandmother was a farm wife so she did everything for him, he doesnt know how to do laundry, he doesnt know how to cook, pay bills, etc. so it is going to be different for him. I will be the first one to say to all the men this is why it is good to not have your wife do everything for you! Anyway Thanks for all of your support and thoughts and prayers, it is nice to know that people are so supportive.What I say is my opinion, not my employers or that of my academic institution.

Jenna, it may sound strange, but notecards will be your grandpa's best friend for a while. A notecard with laundry instructions taped above the washing machine, another with what bills are due when (and how much, if it's a set amount) recipes that are spelled out very simply, etc. Not having to worry about remembering how to do the little things like that will a great help for a while. Plus, calling and visiting often, making sure he still stays "connected' with the world, will do a lot of good and help him heal.
