Our family could use your prayers for Grandma, who has battled PSP for the past few years. She recently came home after a two week stay in Elkhorn Valley Rehabilitation Hospital in Casper, Wyoming. Sadly, they had to put down their dog, Buddy too.
Today, I thought I'd share my husband's paternal grandparents family history:
Donald Eugene Wright
born 1934, in Kansas.
A veteran who was a Tanker.
married for fifty-eight years on May 29th, 1957 in Elkhart, Kansas to
Margaret "JoAnn" McCrea
born 1942, in Kansas.
They have three children. Kerry (Cindy) Kimble (Carin) and Kandy (Ben)
seven grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.
The family moved to the West and have made Wyoming home for forty years.

When talking about my husband's paternal side, I usually say they remind me of a John Wayne movie. They live out in the middle of nowhere, in a small town in Wyoming - a days drive to Salt Lake City, Utah (the nearest city).
Grandpa and Grandma enjoy spending their time outdoors, and have participated in the senior Olympics. They are skilled at archery and grandpa, who is a skilled craftsman makes his own bows and arrows.
They had a cabin up in the mountains for many years, where they'd go hunting, fishing and camping with their family.
Their children are:
Kerry Don Wright
born 1958, in Kansas
married for thirty-eight years on November 26th 1977 to,
Cynthia "Cindy" Lee Dillon
born 1958, in Saudi Arabia (to American parents)
They have two sons Kasey (Kimberly) Cory (Kiki - that's me)
They live in the Pacific Northwest.
Kimble "Kim" Ray Wright
born 1959 in Kansas
married for thirty-one years on August 25th, 1984 to
Carin JoAnn Conner
They have one daughter Kaitlyn (Ray)
They live in Wyoming.
We went to Kaitlyn's wedding last year.
|Grandma, Grandpa, Ray and Kaitlyn, Carin and Kim, Sharon and Jim (Carin's parents)|
born 1960 in Kansas
married for thirty-five years on December 20th, 1980
Benjamin Daniel Horton
They have four daughters Kelly (John) Shana, Samantha (getting married), Karly
They all live in Wyoming, except Kelly's family who live in Ohio
|Samantha, and her twin daughters Mya and Lila as flower girls at Kaitlyn's wedding.|
Grandma would like to make it to her granddaughter, Samantha's wedding. So please join us in prayer, that the matriarch of this family stays a little while longer. We hope to send a care package off soon.
Blessings back to you, and yours.
