A SAD FAREWELL

Tommorrow we will begin our journey to the end of an era.. We will leave from Calgary to Kelowna BC, where we will meet up with the rest of the family. With my brothers and sister and some of Mom and Dad's friends we will have a funeral Mass, lunch and mingle with the people.

mom's gone

I haven't been blogging for a while but have enjoyed all of your blogs...still tired most of the time and when not I want to use the energy to get the things done that I have to do in order to organize my life better..

Today like a different person,,more like the guy I married. :cheer: : :laughbounce: :cheer: :cloud9: We worked together all day and it was like old times , so must check the pressure more often.. Hope this goes through..tired again still renovating...
