Yesterday...

As many know, my Dear Father-In-Law has been going through treatment for Lung Cancer. It's been a rough battle, words cannot describe how rough. Well just recently he started losing his hair. So we decided to do some portraits before his hair loss. Here are 2 of Grandma and Grandpa from Sunday afternoon..
And this is quite a bit dramatic.. Fun drama before the big trim.. (by the way, Daniel was the photographer for this)..

I think you can tell Grandpa wasn't hurt..

He could reach up and just grasp his hair and it would come out..

So Grandpa asked me to bring my hair clippers up and 'finish' his hair loss..



Grandma had to help 'ease' the situation with some her humor.. you'll see that in the next few frames.. (though in the first one, I think it's quite visible how hard this really is on Grandpa)..

Grandma noticed how much Grandpa looked like his father now..she went and got the portrait and 'posed' Grandpa the same way to see the resemblance..

A little love..
After Grandpa's hair trimming, he went down in the basement.. while he was gone, Daniel sat in the chair and said "My turn, Grandpa and I will have matching heads and we'll wear matching ball caps."...

So here's some more love..
A lovely Grandaughter.. (this wasn't 'posed' this is completely Julie when around her Grandparents)..
Later in the evening, Nick came by and asked Grandpa to trim his hair.. Grandpa obliged.
So, here's some more love..

And more love... This time from Timmy and Jake..
We all LOVE you so much Grandpa..

I just want to Thank everyone who has been praying for our family. You have all certainly shown us your love and God's Love.. We know He's here.. I Praise Him this day for his Grace and Mercy over our lives, I know He has so much in store for ALL of us..

Have a great evening.. God Bless..
