Our week so far

This week has been a rollercoaster of emotions. On Sunday Sadie gave a talk in her Primary Class and Hannah read the Scripture 2 Nephi 4:15. The did a great job and Sadie even wrote out her talk all by herself. When we met at Jim and Joyce's (Brent's Grandparent's house) after church, Abby gave the blessing and we ate our dinner (vegetable soup). Then then girls gave their talk and scripture to Jim. He was so happy to hear how well they did.

We went over again to their house on Monday and spent some time with them. On Tuesday, we got out around 11am and voted in the primaries. We got home and Brent called our friend and was talking to him. While he was talking to Ian, Brent's mom beeped in. Brent hung up with Ian and answered his mom's call. She was frantic on the other end. She wanted Brent to come over without us. Something happened to his Grandpa. By the time Brent got there the paramedics and police were at the house. Joyce and Sandy had gone out and when they got home Jim was on the floor in the hallway. He was still warm, but he was already gone.

I has been real hard for everyone. We love him very much and he will be missed. He is in a much better place and is young and able to do things he couldn't do for a long time. Pretty much all of the family is getting in on Saturday and the funeral is on Monday. My tummy has been crampy and I haven't been able to sleep all that well, but I am doing alright. Brent, Joyce and Sandy were all there during when the paramedics were working on Jim doing CPR and the shock paddles and have been a little shaken every since. They all haven't slept very well and I pray they feel better soon. I'll post more later.
