The setting of the main beam and trusses on the house in Missouri. Hopefully it will quit raining for awhile.

Here's Jawon on his last visit to Iowa City.

No major changes with Mojo's condition over the past week. She seems to be over the intestinal virus that she was fighting over the few weeks. She was resting comfortably when I visited her yesterday. Just keep fightin and prayin.
Danielle will be home tomorrow for about a week. Hope to see some of you over the weekend.
I continue to count my blessings daily.
Until next time,
God Bless

Moriah has been fighting a bacteria condition in her digestive system. She has been on antibiotics for the last week. She finally was up in her chair again yesterday and looked better than the previous days. Hopefully she's over this. Other than that, no changes in her medical condtion. She remains stable, somewhat alert, but still unresponsive for the most part. Please keep praying for her.

I hope everyone had an enjoyable Mother's Day. It truly is the most important job in the world. I played golf for the first time in a long time. Actually hit a couple of good shots. Thanks to Jim and Joe for getting me out.

The scholarship fund is now open. If you would like to contribute you may send your donation directly to,

P.E.O. Executive Office
3700 Grand Avenue
Des Moines, Ia. 50312

Checks need to be made out to the P.E.O. Foundation and tagged for "Mary Reiman Memorial Scholarship Fund of Iowa City. If you have any questions let me know.

We are also looking into annual fundraisers to grow the fund, such as a Golf Event etc.. If you have any input on this or ideas feel free to contact me.

Danielle will be home during the first week in June. Thanks to the Madsens!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Can't wait to see her.

Should be getting the roof up on the house in Missouri in the next week or so.

My apologies for not doing a posting sooner. I'm going to try to do one a week or so. Thanks to all of you that remember us in your prayers. It does make a difference.

Life is not only Struggles
but Rewards
Not only Tragedies
but Triumphs
Not only Confusion
but Clarity
Not only Grief
but Joy
Not only Distress
but Comfort
Not only Violence
but Peace
Not only Hate
but Love
Not only Evil
but the Grace of The Lord

Oh the paradox of life!!
Have a great week.

Hello everyone, thought you might enjoy some pics of the House in Missouri, we're moving along well.
Moriah has battled a little bit of diarrhea this week and was not very happy when I first arrived this morning. She looked much better after a shower and was up in her chair looking relaxed. They will be doing some tests to see if she has some kind of bug etc. She still seems to express some discomfort and anguish more than anything. There is some emotion there so that gives us some hope that we will see some improvements but as you all I'm sure know, there are no guarantees of any kind.
The Mary Reiman Memorial Scholarship Fund of Iowa City is almost ready to start accepting funds. We will be using some of the original memorial fund money that you all graciously gave to start this. Mary's parents have matched the amount. Thanks be to God!! This will be a scholarship through PEO which Mary was a member of. It will be awarded on an annual basis to a deserving Iowa City West or City High Senior Female who will be attending college. I won't go into the requirements but a committee is being established through PEO to make this award. If you would like to contribute to this fund you can send checks to me at my local address. The checks need to be made out to the PEO Foundation and tag your check to the afformentioned title. This will be a fund that will be open to contributions at anytime. What another cool thing!!

In the future I believe you will be able to send funds directly to PEO. This is a tax deductible contribution..
Who would of thunk??
I'm heading to the lake for a couple of days.
Happy Birthday to Jawon who will be 5
And to Brent Nichols who will be ?!@#@!??????
God Bless
Happy Trails
