    Yup, Niagra Falls....stopped by and did a walk about. That day was a cold that went right through you. About 40 degrees and a brisk wind. Plus, as you can see....a lot of humidity in the air. All in all looking back on it, a nice trip.

    Yea, Niagra Falls. We spent the weekend between there and the Bills training facility and stadium. Great weekend even though I don't root for the Bills.

    Foss - To my untrained eye, it looks like your wife was very content . . . I'm sure she felt you helped make her that way. Hopefully this sits okay with you to say, since I don't know you from Adam . . . possibly you can find some comfort in the fact that her pain was so momentary . . . possibly you can take comfort that you - the tough guy - can carry her pain so that she might rest.

    Rock on.

    Those were comforting words. So comforting that I sent them to my Wife at work. We lost our daughter Michelle on July 29. She was in the Air Force and just getting her life together. I also didn't want to hijack this thread but I am so saddened by the loss of your Marsha, Rick. We just passed through our first month. Life is very different.

    Here is a picture of the three of us last Christmas.

    Wife Jenn with Cheyenne on the left, Michelle with Kia, and me.

    . Dang, mhrischuk, I cannot even imagine the pain of losing a child. So sorry. as I am for Rick as well. I wish I could offer something more, but I will pray for both of you.

    Wow, I agree with Steve. That would indeed be a painful thing to lose a child. Our hearts go out to you mhrischuk.

    I recall many years ago when we had a son in the Air Force and suddenly he got sick and the found cancer. We were told to expect the worst. Talk about a low blow! But we were lucky as was he. But just that we went through that period of uncertainty gave us a peek at what it would be like; pure Hell.

    WebWidow and I and the grand daughter today on the choo-choo at Look Park.

    I used to have skinny arms, then I hauled wood stoves and boilers for 30 years...
