    The 5 hour time difference came to it's for this morning as I was able to have a PM conversation (all be it slow with Melis being on dial up!) and I was able to talk to her.

    Under the present conditios, she is coping extremely well. The poor thing is absolutely shattered and isn't sleeping well. Obviously, it has hit Jim hard and he was sound asleep earlier - something that he deserves and needs. Melis said that Tanner is confused as he doesn't fully understand what is going on and Parker is also upset at the loss of his Grandaddy which is totally understandable.

    Melis is also very, very grateful for everone's kind words of comfort and that, along with her own inner strength, is helping her along in their hour of need. It just goes to show what a strong person Melis is when she can still crack a joke on the boards! (Insomniac Thread - asking for her slippers! and a couple in her PMs).

    Thanks for the update Rich! I spoke to Melis sometime after 9:00 last night so it's good to read your posts from early this morning. I'm very glad to see she was able to get on and see all of the support from her DWT family. She's been feeling it already, but I'm sure seeing it helps too! When I spoke to her last night they were still at Jim's parents' house going through paperwork and Melis said they were all exhausted. She is certainly being strong during this difficult time and I know our love , prayers , and pixie dust are helping her out a lot!

Bobby, I cannot tell you how much I've appreciated your call's and text messages.

    We were able to get all of the funeral arrangements made today (I am so glad that part is over). We are only having visitation one day which will be Wednesday and the funeral is going to be at 11 AM on Thursday.

    Jim's Dad had just celebrated his 74th birthday last Thursday and his Parent's wedding anniversary is on the 22nd. All of that with Thanksgiving and Christmas coming up is going to be very difficult. Jim's Mom is understandably having an extremly difficult time. It hurts so bad to stand by and watch her hurt so much.

    Once again, thank you everyone for your support, your prayers and any pixie dust you have sent our way....and please keep them coming.
    Glad to see you were able to get on last night Melis! I'm glad my calls and texts have helped, although I wish I was closer to help you out in any way... I'd even take care of your boys for a while if I could! Give Jim and his family our s and . I told you you had a lot of concerned DWT family members on here! We're with you all in spirit and are continuously sending LOTS of love your way!!!!

    WE LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!

    Thank you for the update and the story about the Eagle really touched me. As my grandmother loved Bald Eagles and loved everything related to Patriotism. Please know that I am here for you as you were for me and know you can count on me to talk to or just listen. Please take care, get some rest and know we are all praying and sending pixie dust your way!

    As used in Four Weddings and a Funeral:

    Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
    Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
    Silence the pianos and with muffled drum
    Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come.

    Let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead
    Scribbling on the sky the message He is Dead.
    Put crepe bows round the white necks of the public doves,
    Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.

    He was my North, my South, my East and West,
    My working week and my Sunday rest,
    My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
    I thought that love would last forever: I was wrong.

    The stars are not wanted now; put out every one,
    Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun,
    Pour away the ocean and sweep up the woods;
    For nothing now can ever come to any good.

    By W.H. Auden

    Melissa, I'm so sorry to hear of the news of your father in law. You and your family are in my prayers and have my deepest sympathy. May you and your entire family have the strength you will most definitely need to get through this and help your mother in law that she will so much need.

    Arrow Update

    Melis called me this morning, on her way to the nearest Wal Mart (which is about 40 miles away) to get some last minute things before the visitation today. They were all up late again last night still going through files, bills, etc. looking for life insurance policies and all the other paper work needed at this time. Melis is so tired and out of it at this point that she passed Wal Mart while on the phone with me and didn't realize it until she had driven a couple miles. I know she's going to sleep well after all of this.

    The family is supposed to be at the funeral home around 1:00 today, but Melis said she, Jim and Parker are going earlier so Jim can see his Dad one last time before everyone starts arriving. I know it's going to be hard for them all, especially Jim, so any extra s would help. Melis is still hanging in there, but the stress that comes from all of this is certainly effecting everyone in Jim's family, as well as Melis and the boys.

    Let's keep the kind thoughts , love and of course the prayers and pixie dust headed their way!
