Fiona and me in the snow


I haven't written much about my grandpa lately because we haven't gotten much good news. He's continued to deteriorate over the past week, semi conscious most of the time. TOday, he's stopped responding completely. My dad had planned to go to Arizona to help out on Monday, but he's now moved that up to tomorrow. Tomorrow, he'll leave straight after graduation. If the end is near, as we fear, we will soon follow. I knew it would happen soon, knew that the end would come soon, but you never are ready as a human being, to realize the end. He's not gone yet, but we're all preparing ourselves and my dad's going to make that 1500 mile trip as fast as his truck will take him. It will all turn out ok when he is in a beter place in HEaven, but he left behind lost of good and even funny memories. My Grandma and Grandpa need your thoughts and prayers. Man, wouldn't it be great if I could turn all of the chemistry knowledge to good use and cure what's killed my Grandpa on my mom's side, and who knows how many other family members of mine and millions in society around the world.
