we arrived via His Wings Ministries on 4/30 in charlotte, NC. the flight was an adventure similar to riding a roller coaster, yet enjoyable. thomas was on a very narrow stretcher. he is experiencing more pain than usual in his shoulder. we are gratefule to Angel Flight East for their service to us. thomas was already seen by 3 hospice care ladies to help us adjust the first day. we are only using hospice because of the EXTRA support and services offered to thomas and especially for me so that i can get some respite care. we will see his new oncologist this tuesday.

we are forever grateful to my family, neighbors, realtors, church family former and present, sub contractors of thomas. i will specifically name at a later date those who helped make this tremendous undertaking possible.

our home is so comfortable now that thomas and i have a first floor bedroom. to say it has taken a village to move us to charlotte is an understatement!!!!!!!!!!!!!

we leave behind but never forgotten the most precious memories and expect to make new ones.

we were already visited by the Nutters from CEFC who now live in the charlotte area.

we are so grateful to be near our grandson Thomas Michael and Tia and Michael. we find it hard to leave our son Nathan in Pittsburgh but we know he will bloom and grow (after he wilts a little) at being on his own at college in Slippery rock. he knows how many people back home are there to support him.

please pass this blog address to any one who may be interested in our progress at this new juncture of life.

we give praise to Jesus in all He has done for thomas and me.

love to ALL. till then. PAL
