I just wanted to say thanks to everyone for the kind words and PPTs about Tru's mom. He did get his leave extended an extra week (although they called to confirm this a mere 3 hours before he had to be at the airport for his flight back!) and his brother arrived from California early Saturday morning. We've been very busy little bees going through all the clutter in his mom's house and deciding what needs to be shredded or thrown out then dividing up who wants what and what's going to be donated somewhere. It's been quite an undertaking and I've been sneezing my head off from all the dust. There is still SO much that has to be done, both for financial stuff, selling the house and car, etc. and not a lot of time to do it in. His bro goes back to Cali the same day he goes back to Iraq. However, since Zak got here Tru seems to be doing so much better and handling things very well. We even got some alone time Saturday night which was nice since we've been with family or friends constantly since I got here on the 9th. The memorial service will be on Friday (no visitation/viewing or funeral) so I'm sure I'll be dealing with more emotion then but for now he's very much in "get things done" mode, even though he has talked out some things with his brother.

You called him Tru every time. ;o)

I'm glad he got his leave extended and that he's responding to the added support of his brother being there. I'm also glad you guys got some alone time. I know it's far from over, though, so you guys continue to be in our prayers.

I'm so glad his leave was extended and you two seem to be hanging in there. You are in my thoughts/prayers.
