My Dad

I wanted to let you know that my Dad passed this morning after a valiant fight against his cancer.  Words cannot express how appreciative I have been of your support for him and for me.

re: Email

I'm not sure why my reply to your other email isn't working.  So I'll reply to this one.  How about November 13, 14?  Love you!

I was looking at the calendar last night and wanted to run a date by you.  What would you think if I came up to visit November 2 (arriving around noon) and came back to VA on November 3?  Howard is away all that week in New Orleans for a mission trip and I know I'll have to be back here to work the Equine Extravaganza.  I'll find out my days/hours today.

I would need to bring the mutt since Howard won't be here to watch him.  Let me know if that's ok.  If not, I'll call Wingmont and see if I can get him in on November 1 and pick him up the November 4.

Another option would be for me to visit around the Veterans Day holiday.

Love you, your oldest ugliest :)

health update------again

Hi again Gang,
            Well I just got home from my radiation treatment and everything went well. Now it's a matter of time to see if it helps my "Dizzy Spells".  The  importent thing is that the tumor is no longer active.
             will keep you up to date as required.       
                                     love  ya,  Dad

health update

Hi  Gang,
            As  most of you know, I  have  been  having  Dizzy (light-headedness) spells for the passed few months. No  one  seems  to  know  what  has  been  causing  them. So  this  Monday  they  gave  me  a  CT  Scan  of  the  brain.  (No smart remarks)  The  results  showed  a  small  tumor  in  one  section  of  my  brain.
            As  a  result,  I  will  be  receiving  what  is  called  "Gamme  Knife  Surgery"  this  Thursday (tomorrow 9/15).  This  is nothing  more  than a  type of  radiation.  I  go into  the  doctors  office  at  7:30 AM and  should be  out  by  2:00 PM  assuming  everything  goes  OK.
            This  tumor,  of  course,  has  to  be  removed  but there  is  no  assurence  that  this  is  the cause  of  my  "Dizzy"  spells.
                                        Love  you  all,    Dad

Alice Noland and Howard Smith Are Done!

Stick a fork in it! Oh I wish I was there to celebrate with them! Alice just called. They rode about 18 miles this morning to Hazard KY. She said it was a magnificent ride in the mountains. They are driving around Hazard now looking for breakfast and then they will drive home. Congratulations!!!
