“Three” or “Joyce, Chase, and West”

A few quick things before I go to bed. First, please pray for my family as we work through another tough situation. My Aunt Joyce, wife of my mom’s brother Dennis, will likely pass away sometime within the next week. She’s been battling cancer for a few months now and she and the immediate family recently decided to forgo any further treatments such as dialysis and chemo.

She and Dennis have two daughters, Jennifer and Kris Ann. They are both married and have children. I’ll likely be traveling to Pennsylvania with family for the funeral.

Second, I spoke with my mother this evening to get an update on my nephew Chase. I guess he’s doing very well. Sounds like he’s walking pretty well and is able get around on playground equipment to a certain extent. His speech and short-term memory are progressing very well also. His progress is such a huge answer to prayer and a true miracle of God. Thank you so much for your continued prayer support. I look forward to getting over to Ann Arbor to visit he and Andrea and Grant sometime soon.

The trip to Utah, Nevada and Arizona was a great time. I won’t go into details now, but I’m inserting a few teaser images. This is a very quick and rough selection from my crop of pics. These are the pure images from my Canon PowerShot S410. I didn’t edit them in Photoshop yet, other than to resize and Web optimize so they download quicker for all you on a dial-up connection.

So, check out the mini-gallery I’ve started. I’ll flesh it out as I process the images and pic my favs.
