Flying to Nebraska
Dear Family and Friends:
In a few hours I will be on the 3:20 am bus that goes directly to the Riga airport in Latvia where I will begin the second part of the trip home. I will arrive in Lincoln on Friday night 11:30 pm but, as things stand now, I do not think I will get home before Papa makes his last trip. The important thing is that I will be with my family and friends during this difficult time.
As always, trips of this kind are very rushed and there is so much to do and to think about. Fortunately, my classes are all very well trained to pick up announcements, assignments and participate in discussions online. There will be little break in their work though they may not be too excited by that news. The week after next is fall break and I will stay in the States most of that week as well. I suppose, when one thinks about it, this even has happened at one of the best possible times, if it had to be before Christmas.
It will be good to know that Papa will be finally comfortable and at peace at last. I am not sure he's had much of that in his life.
Love and hugs to all,
