I'm not sure. Would be cool to get together sometime as we're 73 days out from our next WDW trip.

However as thing were with me and my family back in November/December, we once again find ourselves in a similar situation.

5 weeks ago this past Friday, my father was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor and given 6 weeks to live, just 2.5 months after my mother died.

My sister and I have been working to get all his affairs in order while he's in a hospice facility. I've been traveling back and forth about every other week to visit and help clean things out and get our ducks in a row.

We have a month until final payment is due on our May WDW vacation, which we desperately need to take after the past 4 months we've been through. At time of final payment, we also have to make the decision about trip insurance depending on how the next 3 weeks go.

Didn't mean to unload on y'all, but wanted to let you all know what's going on. We truly need all the thoughts and prayers we can get, even if it's just for him to slip quietly away without much more suffering so he can go be with my mom.

Well, just wanted to pop back in and give an update.

My father passed away at 1:35pm today, March 11.

We're on our way up there to make arrangements now. I just got back from visiting him up there 24 hours ago.

I would REALLY love to be able to go to a meet here in Mississippi. Living in Jackson, and it being pretty centrally located, I feel it would be the best spot. Jackson Hilton, maybe ?

My prayers go out to you and your family. Thank God you were with him a short time before his passing. A similar situation happened with my mother this past August when we had our trip to Aulani scheduled for the first of September. Fortunately, as in your case, I was able to see her a day before her passing. The trip went as scheduled and it was a much needed time away to rest, relax and recover. Please let me know if there is anything you need. God bless.

We're in Long Beach!

At our last meet-up in Hattiesburg, it was suggested that the next meet-up of the South MS contingent could be on the Coast. Wherever it is in the South part, we're probably up for it!

Is it time to have a meet-up again? Lots of folks will be planning trips for the May-Sept time frame. Would you rather meet beforehand and discuss the planning or meet afterwards and hear all about it?
