Inspirational

I had big dreams of updates during the holiday weekend, but life got in the way.

We missed our time with family this year, and stayed at home.  This was most certainly what Lexa needed.

Fortunately, it meant we were in town for a very touching Memorial Service.

Our Bus Driver had been battling Pancreatic Cancer for about 7 months, and passed away just before Thanksgiving.  Mr. Jay was more than just the guy who drove the boys to school. He was/is an inspiration.

He was always happy, welcoming, chatty, and caring.  He was a special person in all the lives he touched.  We are glad we knew him.

The Memorial was very touching as all the kids on the bus wore their Be Driven shirts, and the local High School Football team wore their Letter Jackets.  I am glad we had the chance to say goodbye, and sad that our time knowing him came to an end.
