These are just some of the Memorials that have been made for JJ....
Our Delta group that was started when the boys were in boot camp have rallied around us...They started a fund raiser and have flooded our face book pages with thoughts, prayers and love....

My daughter Shannon has been on the news numerous times..The first time was because of JJ being from our area..then the national news got into it because of the government shut down..they are not sending out the death benefits that usually go out in 36 hours..there also might be a problem with the funeral home getting paid because of the shut down..right now there aren't any checks being written for these things...

My daughter is doing the interviews more for other families that can't afford to take time off of work to mourn and prepare for their loved ones to come home..believe me, it takes a long time..
JJ died on the 5th but won't be home until next Tuesday and then the viewing will be on Friday the 18th and the services on Sat..

Shannon is blessed to have many hours of personal time off..and she gets paid...
Some families don't have that..they have to go to work while trying to mourn their loved ones..such a shame...

Tomorrow morning we go to do the obituary..that will be another trying time....
Then in the afternoon we will go to JJ's high school for a Memorial service...
Then a few days break until he comes home on Tuesday...

During all of this time, his father is acting like he is heartbroken..his dumb ass wife is acting the same..When JJ was little she used to make him sleep on the basement floor because he was a bed wetter...NO blankets..she said she was sick of doing laundry...AND NOW, she wants to act like the heartbroken step-mom...Oh Lord, help us deal with them at the service...

We also have to be worried about some baptist church that might protest at the funeral...God help them if they try that....
The Marines are keeping an eye on their web site and if it looks like they're going to show up, the will get even MORE MARINES  to stand guard...
Such a shame that people would be so cruel....

Well, on that note, I need to either do some cleaning around here or try to get some sleep...
I only worked for a few hours today at my day job..I'll work tonight and then I'll be off for the rest of the week-end.....and I need that:)
