My nephew, Don had to work until 4:00 yesterday evening , but called and said he and Dena, his wife, would meet us at a restaurant here in Slidell. It was a great place, set back in the woods, with large trees filled with moss, around it. We had a great time visiting with the kids, and had great meals all around. Don also insisted on picking up the tab. Thank you again kids for a wonderful meal.
We talked quite a bit about his Dad, and other family. I was very disappointed to learn that my brother’s estranged wife/widow is taking the kids inheritance. My brother had left a $22,000.00 and a $10,000 policy for his Grandkid’s education, and she is fighting them for it. How can people be so cruel. This is what he wanted, and she knows that. Uncle Boone left his wife in October of 09 and moved in with my cousin, Charlotte. He had a very nice home and was able to enjoy the last year of his life. Charlotte has a very nice lower level to her house and they had come up with a rental agreement that was their business, and not mine. He told me several times, throughout the time I was with him, that he had these policies for his grandkids. It really makes my heart hurt that all of this is going on. They certainly don’t need to be going through all of this while still grieving for their Dad and Grandpa.
We had a great time with the kids, as always, but I did miss seeing my little niece and nephew. We will spend plenty of time with them the next time we all land in the same area.
We are getting ready now to head out for Mississippi. Catch you down the road. :)
