Sad News

I got a call from Dave's sister Rebecca and Manuela passed away today around 6:00 p.m. Once the arrangements are made Dave will be able to attend the service. She was 84 years old. She was predeceased by her husband David who died 36 years ago in 1973. She never remarried. She had 4 children and Dave is the oldest. May she rest in peace...

  1. Aww, sorry to hear that news. How is he doing in his recovery program? Hopefully this will not cause him to backslide.

  3. Melanie - He is doing really well actually. I spoke to him the other night and he sounded good and was relying on Faith to help him through it. He feels guilty that she was (did) die while he was in the program (he even had a premonition) but she had apparently been sicker then they knew. I am just thankful he can go to the service. I will be leaving next Saturday so I am hoping the service is this week so I can go for Dave's sake. We shall see...

    Thanks Jo *hugs*
