April, this comment should really be posted to the blog before this one, but... This is Collette Bise. I dropped by your mom and dads last night. Your mom was very tired/half asleep. She has the most beautiful spot in the house, right by the front window. I was talking to your dad, we thought your mom was sleeping, but I made her smile! So precious. Gary was telling me he takes her for a walk in the wheel chair every day. I said, "So, what do you do, tie the wheel chair to the 4-wheeler and pull her down the street?" That's where I got the smile. Mostly I'm writing to tell you that I will be happy to take McKenzie and Julia while you are here. I will call you Sunday night or Monday morning. Any and all days you need, let me help! My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Collette Bise
