The last three days have passed by like an eternity. I can not believe that just 3 days ago, I lost two very important people. Yet, in that time, we've had many discussions about what to be thankful for. We've seen family and friends that we haven't seen in years, we've had to reorganize the kitchen umpteen times to accommodate all the food and supplies people have brought us. We've made a call to ask for a babysitter so we can go to the funeral home, and one appears at the door within minutes.
We've also watched the news van drive back and forth in front of the house in what appeared to be shark like fashion. That is, until we took the time to talk to them. At first, The Colonel and his youngest brother stood out in the yard trying to look as menacing as possible...but then the news reporters caught The Colonel's sister on her way to the store...and we found out that they just wanted to help us honor Gary and Kim.
They came to the house yesterday while we took the kids out to a museum to give everyone a break, and the wonderful wonderful interview and story are shown here. The written story is powerful, but click on the video to see my MIL and FIL be the strongest people I know.
