where to begin?

we've had a long week. rett found out wednesday morning that his dad had passed away. he was in shreveport when he got the call and had to drive home. he came to my office and then went to his brother's. i can't even imagine. it appears that he died peacefully in his sleep. we're grateful for that. i came home yesterday and rett is on his way home now. please pray for us as we walk through this journey.

olivia only got to meet "granddaddy hamby" a few times but we know we'll be able to tell her stories of what a great man he was.

in honor of him...
at olivia's christening in august

in july at his house

the day we came home from the hospital. he had dozed off holding olivia and woke up right as i took the picture!

he became a photographer after retiring about 6 years ago and he was awesome! we have thousands of his photographs on a computer. one day olivia will be able to look at these and know he was great! maybe she'll have his talent!

there's an awesome video of him (and some of his work) on this website - www.wellsfuneralhome.net
