HAPPY FATHER'S DAY !!!
Happy Fathers Day to all the fathers out there - Especially Big Bad Brucey! On Saturday Bruce, Carmen and I took a little trip up to So.Pasadena to visit his dad who after 4 weeks is still in the hospital! I have a bit of a cold and even though I wanted to go in I thought it was best not to expose him. So I waited in the car while the others went in to see him. After a nice visit we all pilled back into the car for the short car ride to Bruce's sister Sue's house for a celebration to honor our nieces Nicole and Camille's high school graduations and 18th birthdays! It was a long day for us but lots of laughter, pictures and great food made it all worth the drive.
Anyway to get to the point of this post: Carmen told us that many of you have asked what is the total amounts collected at the fund raiser. After some figuring of costs and expenditures we have come up with the astonishing amount of ...$14,000!!!!! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!! This grand and awesome total is helping us keep our heads above water while Bruce goes through the next five months of treatments. We could not have done it without you all, the village that has been created around us is amazingly caring and generous. This not only includes the monetary donations but also the many, many other kind ways we have been supported.
Keep loving and supporting each other; its what keeps the world going around and makes it all worth while.
Love to you all,
