Jim's Service

Just a quick note to mention that Jim's service will be in the chapel at the VA in Prescott at 1pm this Saturday afternoon. Later on, there will be a get-together back at the house.

Grandpa Jim

Heather's step-dad, James Clark, passed away at 4pm today at the VA Medical Center in Prescott. This followed a long illness that ultimate started when he fell from his ladder and was admitted to hospital last year.

H is naturally very upset but bearing up. She and baby Jimmy flew over on Wednesday. Owain and I will be joining them soon. No news about the funeral yet. I'll post more info when I get it.

Here are some snaps of Jim from the times that Heather took me to visit him in Prescott.

Painting is Fun

Lately Owain likes to get out the watercolors once or twice a day and sometimes mom and dad have to join in. My paintings mostly consist of rainbows and dinosaurs (at Owain's request). John did a self portrait. Frighteningly accurate wouldn't you say? Seeing this laying out on the table was like finding a prize, a prize that makes me laugh EVERY time I see it.
