"REST IN PEACE GRANDPA TED FULLEN"











Tonight is a sad night.I got the call from Mark.(Those of you who have been reading my blog know Mark is my best friend ,He lives in Missouri And you know Grandpa's been sick.)Tonight he called to tell me Grandpa passed away. I don't know all the details yet. But i do know my friend is hurting.And I'm here in California and hes 2000 miles away and all I can do is pray and ask God to comfort him.You see Grandpa Ted and Mark are very close.Grandpa would stop by every day and visit with the little ones. In an Earlier blog I posted pictures at Easter time on my blog.The whole family went to the Rehabilitation center to Spend Easter with"Pops".I was in Missouri three years ago for Easter. I can remember standing in the kitchen while Pops talked to me. He loved all his Grandchildren.But Mark is special.They have a unique Relationship ,Between the two of them the word Generation Gap didnt exsist.


I laugh just thinking about Pops driving all over town with that old broken down was machine that he was going to get to fixing some day.And how it would slide back and forth as Pops drove over a curve here and there.In that old truck. Mark Would follow behind to see that Pops made it home safe from having his breakfast at Pickle Jeans.Before Mark and I hung up the phone.His voice was deeply saddened and he said Now i know how you felt with all your losses. Bloggers please prayer for Mark and his Mother Kathy,and his Sister Brandy.That they hold onto each other and find comfort in one another.
Good night Grandpa Ted, The old broken washing Machine is now fixed!!!!

  10. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'll definitely have to try the WD 40! Seems I'd heard that somewhere before. I'm lying on the couch now with my bad foot propped up. I'd beem on it a lot the past few days & it's swollen & inflamed. I'm supposed to have surgery on the toes next Wed and I think it is infected. I called the DR & he put me on antibiotics again. I hope it doesn't postpone the surgery, but it could. I'm sorry to ready about your friend's recent loss. Sounds like they had a wonderful relationship. I am sure you'll be a great source of comfort for him.
    Take good care,
    Barb *queenb

  13. Hi John, stopping in to see what is going on here, and I see the news is sad. I guess it is good that everyone got together with him when they did. I know that he was old and it was his time, nothing lives forever, but its still sad for those left behind that grieve and miss him. I know it doesnt help that you are so far away from your good friend at this time, but I know that he understands and knows that you are thinking of him and that you care. BIG HUGS, Kelly

  14. I like the new look, I would imagine that is a picture of you. I went plain on my blog today. I am always fooling around with it like I know what I am doing and I don't. Taught myself what I know about 10 years ago and still find myself feeling like a dummy. However I earned that right at age 79. I hope things are better for your friend and you also, now. It takes time . I have found time heals but in some cases not completely. Not when one loses a child, even though grown he is still my child.
