A life well lived.
(8-26-2015 by Nay)
This past weekend we said our good-byes to Jennae’s Dad. He had been in assisted living since her Mom passed away a year and a half ago due to dementia. He had taken a tumble last week, and Julie (Jennae’s sister) and Jennae were able to be with him as he breathed his last. (http://www.evergreenfuneralhome.com/obituary.phtml?obituary_id=98A5220E)I will be going back down to Eau Claire for the visitation and funeral. It is a rather strange feeling now that the last of our parents is gone. Harlan was one of a kind, as Jennae said in her poem, he was a man of great love and great faith, always there for his family and friends to do whatever needed to be done, usually with a smile on his face.
We’ve gotten all the results back from the testing that I’ve had done. Aside from the arrhythmias in my heart (which the assure me are absolutely benign), a touch of asthma, and of course the cancer in my bone marrow, I’m really quite healthy. My blood work continues to track along as usual. My white count is a touch on the high side compared to the average, but in the last cycle is was a touch on the low side,so as long as it stays close to the average we don’t get too concerned. So we go forward with continued hand washing and wear a mask when I’m in a crowd(visitation and funeral).
In this time of grief, we most heartily thank you for your thoughts and prayers. Blessings and peace, Jeff and Jennae
