Well, things have been difficult lately. My uncle Steve passed away last week. He died of cancer, and I was there for the last 4 days, it was very tough to watch. Very different from Genevive's death experience. In a way I think the death of a baby is better, even though that sounds funny. When she passed away we were able to do her bath, take photos, do hand prints and casts. Lots of little things like that. With my uncle all we could do was watch and when he was gone hold his hand and rub his head. I am not sure why, I felt there should be more that can be done, but there wasn't. I am just rambling, I am so upset. I love my uncle, and I am so sad to see how much my dad is suffering.

On a different note we finally got the email about the headstone. It is done and ready to be shipped. Isn't it breathtaking!!
