UPDATE – Apr. 14 – Apr. 16, 2006

Happy, Kristi, Jake and Emily spent Easter weekend in New Bern with Happy’s mom and dad, Ann and Leon Wade. We helped them to clear out some storage areas and get rid of things that were taking up needed space. Jake and Emily enjoyed an Easter celebration at Christ Episcopal Church Saturday morning. We appreciate that this church opened it’s doors to the public. We attended First Baptist Church with Happy’s mom and sister Easter morning. It was a beautiful Easter morning, and we enjoyed seeing alot of familiar faces. Thanks to all who continue to send cards to Emily and her family. Emily especially appreciated the Easter goodies she received. We are enjoying the Easter lilies given to Emily from family and friends. In the midst of Easter joy, we also learned that the father of Sally Smith passed away Saturday. Sally is one of Kristi’s oldest and closest friends. Sally came to Chapel Hill to take care of Kristi and Emily the first weekend they were in the Ronald McDonald House. Sally’s dad’s health has been failing for quite some time. We remember Mr. Smith with fondness and especially his unique sense of humor.
