    Hello everyone...kids and I wanted to update things for ya's...we are in a home now..took a bit over a year but we made it...My son R-E passed into sixth grade with straight A's and he received two very prestigious awards,one from the President and one from the Blue Mountain School District itself...made me very proud,,,Venus passed into fifth grade with straight A's as well!! We are still financially struggling..but who isn't...slowly but surely we are establishing some sense of normalcy.Things are definitely different and I remain hopeful we will serve Ralph's memory honorably and go from existing to living once again!!We hope everyone is doing well and we wish ya's the best with everything you and yours endeavor upon!!

    More like what is not on my mind....it's been an incredibly rough journey for my children and I and even though my husband passed shortly after being diagnosed it has torn at every aspect of our lives!!
