Darrell is doing great! He went back to work in mid- November. The work week is somewhat hard for him to get through, however. His strength is not quite where it should be. But overall, he is able to do everything that he did before his bout with illness.

As an update to our 2006 story, both of our mothers passed away in October. Darrell and our son Jason were able to fly out to California for his mother's funeral. Darell had a close time with his sisters, brother and their families as they mourned the loss of their mother. We know she is with the Lord which is a great comfort.

The day my mother passed on to be with the Lord, both my sister Sheila and I, as well as my nephew David and Darrell, were at her bedside. We felt that we were able to see her walk into the presence of Jesus.

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving and Christmas season with our families. We are so grateful to the Lord for all He has brought us through this year! Here are a couple of pictures of our grandbabies at Christmas:
