Well, the weekend was a bummer. We new he wasn't doing to well but you never expect someone to go. You always want to beleive that we will live forever..
We wanted to go over Friday night but we didn't want to cross over two mountain passes at night as it was snowing so we waited till Sat. morning but he died at 10pm Friday night. http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/frown.gif He never got to meet my little boy. And Sat. was the first time my Aunt had ever seen him. They have two Sons of their own but neither of them have children of their own. Last time I saw him was 4th of July weekend 1999.

He was 90 and lived a long wonderful life ,I will miss him as he was my Favorite Uncle.

R.I.P. Glen Glandon.

Deepest condolences, GUNNER. He's probably up there telling 'biggest fish' stories with my grandfather as we speak. Pass my well-wishes along to the rest of the family.

This Thursday we are having the funeral in Yamhill Oregon. Most all of my Moms side will be there. Relatives I haven't seen in quite some time.

Why is it that we never make the time to see our Family until something traggic like this happens? I think I had better try a little harder to stay in contact with my relatives..

My Uncles oldest Son who I haven't seen or talked to in probably 15 (or more) years (He is 45 Yrs old) lives in cali and builds PC/servers for web clients. We hit it off great. I can't beleive that we have a shared intrest and I'm just now finding out about it. http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/frown.gif After about 10 minutes we were talking about the benifits of R.A.I.D. for PCs and building Servers for both Gaming and web sites.

I am loking forward to starting new relationships with my relatives when I see them Thursday and keeping in contact. When I was younger it was hard to relate to all my cousins as I am the youngest, most of them are in their 40s or 50s now,(my Mom & Dad are both youngest in their families) out of all of the kids. But now that I am older it seems like age is only what we make of it.

Well, Thursday we had the funeral and it was beautiful. It was in Yamhill, Oregon. It was on a little hill and it was snowing. It was cold but the veiw was nice as was the little service. For the first time that I can ever remember I had cousins from 3 diferent Family's in the same room at once. My Sisters and I, my Aunts Boys( Deceased Uncles sons), another Uncles sons and and some other cousins from yet another uncle. I had 5 Cousins (3 family's) represented. It was wonderful.

Thank You everyone for the kind words.

Oh dear.

/me feels guilty for not noticing this before.

My condolences to you and your family GUNNER.

I'm going to the funeral of a old lady who used to live around the corner from me this week. She was a lovely old lady and became quite a friend to me and my wife. We got in to see her in hospital about 2 hours before she died but she didn't know we were there. Her grandson that lived with her was coming round to us for Sunday dinner he turned up when expected, not for dinner but to tell us she died.

I'm sorry to hear that chewie. It makes me think about how much longer my Dad is going to be around. He is getting older and isn't in the best of shape and he doesn't take caree of his Diabetes like he should. : http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/frown.gif
