Last week we learned that Dianna's Aunti Reah had suffered what the doctors are calling a massive stroke. As we traveled toward Denton, Dianna spent much of her time on the phone with her cousin Carrie, who is like a second sister to her. By the weekend her Unkle Linc had been placed in a facility and everyone became aware that Aunti Reah's prognosis was grave. After some more phone calls last evening, we decided we needed to be in California to be with the family.
We went to Jennings and tearfully let them know we would not be here for Thanksgiving, and that we will try very hard to return so we can still have Christmas together. They understand, but we are all sad about it.
This morning we will leave Denton and make the trip to Denair, CA. It is about 1600 miles so it will take at least 3 days to get there. We will have very little if any internet connectivity during that time, so if anyone needs us, they should call.
