Yes, this has been a very busy time. Andrew and his family were here on Labor Day and he helped me to get my old laptop connected to the home network. Then his baby Alannah was sick and was in the hospital Sept 5-6. On Sept 7 Evelyn had her baby, Arianna Belle Auger, and Judy stayed with Evelyn's family until Monday night. Monday night our friend Marlayne Gwilliam died, after surgery and a lengthy stay in the ICU. Judy is Compassionate Service Leader at church, so she has been busy arranging meals for the family, and then the food for the funeral on Friday. The funeral was gigantic! Despite the fact it was a weekday, the church was filled to capacity. And it was a beautiful service, reflecting the life of a generous and loving woman, who died at the young age of 45. Saturday morning we stopped off at the church to leave some fresh vegetables and a bunting bag at the breakfast (put on for the patrons of the Parkland Food bank). When I got home after our shift at the temple, I discoverd that my satellite internet access was "down". So I am back using dialup until things get fixed. I hope you are having a wonderful week.
