Sorry about Edie's brother. Just read the paper.

Tell her we're thinking of her. Getting ready for work now, 5 hours today. I'll give you a ring tomorrow.

Again, our condolences and God bless.

I just tried calling you,then I came on line.We're devastated.Billy was just the best and my favorite brother in law.they were due down here in March and they we're going to look for a place.
What happened was,a few weeks back he got dizzy driving over to his daughters and almost passed out.Went to a Dr and they found a blocked artery.Thursday he went to the hospital for a same day surgery,in and out.They went through a vein for a cap(baloon)to open the artery.His blood pressure dropped and he died.So unexpected and so F'ing sad.I can barely stand it.They tried rushing him for open heart surgery but couldn't get him stabilized.Everybody,his wife,2 kids and most of my in laws were there and expecting to take him home.Instead some Dr had to break the terrible news.My wife got a call from her sister Barb and Barb was hysterical.Edie called me but I fell asleep on the couch.Work the overnight.Anyway she walks in from work at 11 A.M. she's first shift,crying and said Billy is dead.At first I was like Billy who,then the bomb hit me.
Not Billy,it can't be Billy.
He led the exampity life.With his wife since they were 15.Career of 30 years in the service and retired a Sgt.2 kids both college educated.Same job as a civilian in a military place of business for as long as he was also in the service.He went to Iraq as a civilian and got paid megabucks restructuring the wasteland.Did that for his kids college money.They were finally going to move down here with us,and now my favorite brother in law is gone.
It's where you and I met in person,that family member.
I dropped Edie at the airport at 2 P.M. for a 4 p.m. flight.
We had nobody for the dogs and if we drove,nobody had adequate accommodations for the pets.So I'm home and it sucks as much as his death that I can't be there.Tuesday is the service.Edie is at her brother Billy's house on Sharon's request.
Damn this was sooooooooooooooooooo unexpected.Barely slept since Thurs.
Ty,
and later.Feel free to stop by if you feel like it,no problem if you can't.

Thanks.

Recognized the place when I saw it though. Remembered that little garage.

Talked with Edie for a bit. Barb wasn't there yet so I didn't get to see her as I couldn't stay long. Bill's wife went to school with my sister Susan and even resembles her a bit. She did tell me that last time also and it all started coming back to me when I was there.

Told Edie I hope you guys can get up here for some good times instead of bad. Too bad you couldn't make it bro, hopefully soon and under good circumstances.

Later.

That would be nice.I guess all the crunches your doing are paying off,Edie said you look fit.I spoke with Sharon twice today.I'm relieved she's doing so well.She's still coming down.Everybody is moving forward,we're a strong bunch and together even stronger.Billy would want it that way.

If you go to Citizens Voice obituaries and past week William J.Hufford you'll find the obituary and who Billy is.
Edie said soldiers in Iraq have gotten word and are leaving messages.I find that to be outstanding,not sure where there leaving them at though.Tomorrow is the burial.

Looks like military back in the U.S.Under view messages I'm finding them sprinkled in.One was from a guy that Billy worked on TAC missiles with in Tyad.

Yes, I'm about 15lbs. lighter than I was when we met. Lost over 40 altogether and like the bowflex commercial, I truly am in better shape now than I was ten years ago.

Diet and two ten pound weights is all it takes. My crunches are actually torso twists as they are more effective and I do various different exercises with the weights five or six days a week.

For all you protein shake guys....a little red meat and some dairy products are good for you.

Source: National Institutes of Health.....sorry.

Check the site for the funeral home. They sometimes have their own guestbook where people leave messages.

Getting ready to work out now. I got up early so I will be extra tired when I get home as I have to try to get right to sleep. I have to get up at 7:00am for her doctor appointment. If they start thr radiation in her hip, I'll be getting up early everyday 'til it's done.
