    sad news this christmas eve

    I just found out after posting my new tool that my father-in-law just passed away at his home tonight. We were expecting it since earlier this year. He's been in the hospital for about the past 4 or 5 months and just this week they dicovered more cancer thru out his body. They sent him home with a nurse 2 days ago. I feel fortunate that they were able to spend christmas with us last year while he was still fairly healthy but new we wouldn't see him again just going by his actions and the way he said goodby to all of us.Sorry guys can't type anymore.
