My father-in-law passed away last night.
Gareth is doing about as well as can be expected. We picked him up at LAX Christmas Eve, we spent the holiday together... and now we all fly back together on Friday. Gareth has only just gotten over his jet lag.
I thought we pulled the last visit together quickly. We only have two days to get organized for this one.
I won't say much more here now. Gareth hates that so much of what happens with us ends up in my blog, and he hasn't wanted me to write about his dad's condition -- so I've pretty much respected that, and have tried to keep my posts here contained to what's happening with me. However, now a man who was very dear to me has died, and I'm sad. I'm sad for my husband, I'm sad for my daughter, and I'm sad for our family.
