We had a really rough day on Saturday. Ryan's dad passed away. It has been really hard on the family, of course. We are thankful that we could all be together to be one another's strengths. People have been so kind an generous with all of their thoughts and phone calls and dinners for my mother-in-law. It is so nice. We have also received some caring phone calls and offers to help out with whatever we need. It's amazing to see all of the generosity from friends and family during our time of need. We are having a funeral for him on Thursday. It is going to be a busy couple of days until then. Thank you for all of your thoughts and prayers. How blessed we are to know that we are an eternal family. We love you Grandpa Ray!!!!

We had the funeral on Thursday. It was really wonderful. I know that he was looking down on us with a big grin on his face. He should be so proud!! We truly honored the great man that he was.
