Thanks for the prayers. This stage happened so fast...I wasn’t ready. I got the email addy for hospice and will call them in the morning.

I’ll start calling the in-home care folks in the morning. My folks get a little newspaper called the Senior Voice and I cut out 7 ads for in-home care. Hopefully I can get someone to come and access right away.

REST IN PEACE, FALLEN BROTHER!



SSgt. Jonathan Davis, USMC, Headquarters Battalion, 32nd Georgian Liaison Team, Regimental Combat Team 7, 1st Marine Division, I Marine Expeditionary Force, KIA Afghanistan 22Feb2013



I have fought a good fight,
I have finished my course,
I have kept the faith.
2 Timothy 4:7 (KJV)

"Arm yourselves, and be ye men of valour, and be in readiness for the conflict; for it is better for us to perish in battle than to look upon the outrage of our nation and our altar. As the Will of God is in Heaven, even so let it be." (1 Maccabees 3:58–60)

Eternal Father, Strong to Save

Rest in Peace, fallen brother, rest in peace!
We who remain hold you in high honor.
Rest, fallen brother, in this sacred precinct;
We who remain keep this place sacred.
Rest, fallen brother, among these, your comrades;
We who remain keep the watch.
Rest, fallen brother, amid these who heeded the Nation’s call;
We who remain press the fight forward in your name.
Rest, fallen brother, lay down thy burden;
We who remain have taken up the torch.
Rest in Peace, fallen brother, rest in eternal peace!

Good evening, Brother! I hope all is well with you.

We just had one of the sorriest excuses for a snowstorm I have experienced in many a year! I suspect it's a little warmer in your neck of the woods.

Ted has been far more steadfast than I ever could have imagined.

The man seems unflappable.

Mark Levin was sure happy about what he was hearing.

Do they have the fortitude to continue? I sure hope so. God Bless them!

The pubs have done nothing but give in for a long time.

The old guard must be chapped to see the young guns landing blows on this administration.
