Family and other issues

I am playing catch up here at Bostiva due to some family issues and other personal matters. For those who know me personally, my best friend's grandmother passed away over the weekend. She was a wonderfu, strong woman whom I have know for 10 years and who welcomed me into her house and family as if I was her own granddaughter. She spent many years as primary caregiver to her husband of over 50 years until he passed on three years ago. She will be missed.

My grandmother was also recently diagnosed with stage 4 Colon cancer. She is doing well and responding favorably to the chemotherapy. My grandfather, the man I credit with turning me on the path to photography, is in the hospital as well, and is entering his last days. Please everyone, if you haven't already, take time to talk to your family and loved ones now about what you would want to happen to you if you were no longer able to make those decisions for yourself.

Thank you everyone for your prayers and well wishes, to both my family and to Sandy's. Bostiva is possibly about to undergo some changes, and I will keep you informed as they happen.
