I thought it was about time to post another entry:)

It's been a rough few days for sure...In some respects it feels like it has been weeks..not just four days.....

Yesterday, JJ was flown from Germany to Dover Air Force base..
This is my beloved grandson......

They will do the autopsy today...We found out today that he won't be home until next Tuesday..Waiting makes things so much harder....

The news crews have descended upon my daughter likes flies..
She didn't even realize that that would happen until she found out that they had talked to his dad...the person that hasn't seen him for over 6 years..the person that went to jail for beating him...and the person that didn't even know he was in Afghanistan....

She decided to do the interviews so that it would be correct...
After the local stations got what they wanted she heard from "Today"...she did the interview and totally turned it around to reflect on the fact that the government is shut down..they also used war footage and said that JJ was on the front line doing one of the most dangerous jobs..that is NOT true..he was an intelligence specialist.....Once they found out how pissed off she was, they told her that they would correct it and it will air today....

Yesterday we went to the funeral home to make final arrangements...
The viewing will be Friday the 18th and service on Sat..he will have full military honors...

I found out that my ex-step-daughter...the very one that said she didn't want my grandson Mason to see me anymore, said she was coming to the service...OH, NO, YOU'RE NOT....I sent her a message stating that she is not welcome to come..she sent back "Whatever" and then, "Then Mason isn't coming".....Dumb bitch..does she not realize that no matter what she says, I have been seeing Mason..she is not one of the brightest people around..

On Tuesday the Marines will escort us to the airport to meet JJ's plane...there will be a small ceremony and then he will go to the funeral home..
We still don't know the extent of his injuries, so we don't know if we will be able to have an open casket...either way, Shannon and I will view him to say our good byes....Oh God.....I still can't believe that this is happening.......

I'll try to keep you up dated......
