Funeral in Florida

Sunday, October 4, 2009 my Pappy, Leroy C. Parthemore took his last breath and went to be with Jesus. He truly is in Heaven right now rejoicing with the Lord. My selfish heart aches because I won't get to see him again here on Earth but I am so glad he is no longer suffering and in pain. He was 83 and lived an adventurous life. He made it through the depression, 2 wars and 7 kids! haha He does have 7 children, 11 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren.

We will dearly miss him and always remember him fondly! He had a smile that would brighten anyone's day and always hugged you! So in honor of this great man we all went to Florida for him and my Nanny!

Sunday night we booked our flight down and Tuesday morning we all left. It was a whirlwind of a trip but I will never forget it. Can you imagine us all down there? It was great seeing everyone and here are some pictures of the group!

Our newest family member

Mr. Clean has bugged me more over the past 2 months to get a dog than ever before with anything else. He never had a dog growing up so when we got married and bought our house we bought a puppy. His name was Theo and he was our baby. He was a pit bull mixed with a Jack Russell...I know funny and weird mix but he was cute. He was the perfect pet and we couldn't have been more happy with our decision to get him. After about three years of having him...he had a seizure and so we took him to the vet and put him on medication. The seizures were controlled for the longest time but then the medication stopped working and he began to have episodes of weirdness. His eyes would glaze over and he would become distant and mean and then it was liek something would click in his brain and he was normal again.

We had to put him down about a year ago because his episodes became so bad he went to attack my nephew but the screen door stopped him. It was so hard seeing him moments before and seeing how happy and normal he was. But we knew how bad these were getting and the damage he could do.

Needless to say I was not wanting to get another dog right away but my persistent husband eventually wore me down. So we bought a Miniature Bull Terrier from a Texas breeder. His name is Dozer and he fits perfectly into out little family!
