Well, I knew the day would come when I would have to do this post. And I've dreaded it.
My Aunt Ellie passed away about an hour ago. Many of you have kept up with her and prayed for her through her battle with cancer. She was diagnosed in May of 2010 with pancreatic cancer and has battled so hard for the past two years. Thank you for your prayers for her and please hold our family up to God over the next little bit. If you could go back to this post or this post you can see how much fun we had with Ellie and Greg when they lived in Florida. She was diagnosed shortly after we visited them in 2010. My aunt was a wonderful person, inside and out. I loved her so much and I will miss her even more!
Last week, we also had another death in our family. Papaw Lewis, who is my children's great grandfather on Matthew's side, passed away (also from cancer) and his funeral was Saturday. He loved my kids so very much and he earned a nickname from Kari before she learned to talk plain. "Papaw Lewless" will be missed greatly!
Please keep our family in your prayers as we travel to Ohio for the funeral. Kari has been asked to sing but she's on steroids right now. So, who knows what mood she will be in??? I will do my best to update on Kari (with pictures) tomorrow.
Thanks for your continued support for our family!
