sad news

Our great skiing day ended on a somber note... when we got home, Eric's mom called to let us know that Eric's grandfather had slipped into a coma sometime in the last 24 hours. The doctors say that this is the beginning of the end. Papa's health has been declining over the last few years, so this isn't surprising news, but that doesn't make it any easier to receive.
