The year, 2014, started out with me in the hospital, and once I recovered, my husband required several medical procedures. It seemed that we were running to doctors two or three times a week in addition to our normal everyday things we needed to do. My cousin passed away in April, and then the week of Thanksgiving my brother was diagnosed with terminal Lung Cancer. Last March,my one son got married and moved 250 miles away. It seems that 2015, so far, isn’t any better than 2014. My brother passed away from the Lung Cancer on January 11, 2015. Since then we have been very busy running around to take care of his estate, cremation, and burial. We had a memorial service on February 21, 2015. Needless to say that my genealogy has been put on the back burner. Now that things have settled down a bit, I hope to be able to get back to doing more genealogy and writing about family. I have several family stories rattling around in my head and hope to get them posted soon. I haven’t abandoned this blog, just too much to do and not enough time to do it all. My 2015 resolution is to get back to genealogy, get those family stories written, and get them posted.
