Good morning peoples! Its Monday morning and it sure was a crazy busy week last week. On Wednesday, I got terribly sick with the flu and slept 37 hours in 3 days! That's more sleep than I've had all year!!! I'm not totally better today, but definitely better than I was last week!
As most of you know, my father in law passed away on Friday, April 16. In March of 2009, he was diagnosed with cancer of the throat and mouth. The doctors told him they could get rid of it and he underwent chemo and radiation, then in October, he had surgery to get rid of the last little bit. Well, six weeks later he had 2 tumors again and this time the doctors didn't know what to do. They tried a couple of different treatments of chemo, but in March, they stopped all treatment since it wasn't helping and called in Hospice. He was a Vietnam Vet and they think the cancer could've been a result of Agent Orange, so he was sent out with a Military style funeral, a great honor to a wonderful man. He will be missed terribly!
I did the following LO as a tribute to him and entered it into Estee's Home Sweet Home challenge at scrapbook.com. My take on what home is, is our eternal home with Jesus Christ our Savior. He has gone to prepare a place for us. I can just imagine living in those beautiful mansions and walking on the streets of gold. I am assured of my father-in-law's salvation, and I know he is up there in his eternal home. Someday, we will be reunited with him.
