Hi Everyone

In three days it will be the 13th asnniversary of my Rose's death. Even though my life has changed and I have a whole new family in Texas there is still not a day that goes by that I do not miss my Rose. The move went well and we are in the process of trying to dig ourselves out of boxes, lol. Hope everyone is doing well.

Hi Trina ...

Hard to believe it's 9 years since Joseph passed.  It's been 12 years since Ernie passed away.  Just seems so surreal.  Sometimes it feels like it was not that long ago and other times it seems it's obviously been years.  I am finding now that my life is once again changing and sadly not for the better.  I only have a small immediate family and because things are so bad government wise in BC Canada my family decided to move to Calgary where housing prices are better; gas, etc.  So this is the first year all the visits to each other's homes; special occasions I'll be alone.  They wanted me to move to Calgary as well, but at my age now and little help and all the red tape selling my small rancher (the property is worth a fair bit) it's just too much for me to handle.  I have my good/bad times over it.  Of course as I age friends pass away or move far away and it can get lonely at times.  I just press on, but wondering what's next.  LOL

Hope things are going well for you.

Hi everyone,

Steve and I are fine here in central NY state, fixing up the house and finding doctors - that was more challenging than expected!

Chicago, good luck with the move - our move was exhausting so I hope you have help!!! It will be great to be near family - God bless. 

Todd, Glad you are doing well - think of you often - God bless.

Sara, I was thinking of you with every snowfall, and again with the marathon in the news - thank you for shaking the tree again, and stay well and happy - God bless.

Love to all - ChuckIMG_20221103_175053%20%281%29.jpg
