Uncle Jim and Siri Kirpal are down from Oregon for a few days, so tonight I got to visit them with Mom and Monee and Pa, up at Rossmoor. It was really nice to see them again, I wish it were something we could do more often.
Unfortunately, we also got some unpleasant news. Grandpa Marsh and Grandma Jackie were supposed to be getting back from their latest trip to Europe, but a few days ago Grandpa Marsh was hospitalized in Germany. Aunt Tommy made it back to the States as scheduled, which is how we heard about it, but Grandma Jackie is still over there with him. It's frustrating having them be so far away and not being able to see them or anything, but we're all praying for them, or sending them loving thoughts, or whatever it is we each prefer to do.
I've got a wonderful family. I love you all.
