Christmas 2010: This was a very memorable December for several reasons. Beth was expecting her first child the first part of December. Christy Elizabeth Lagasse was born on December 15, 2010. But Mom got sick and had to have a pace maker put in the first of December than had several mini strokes which put her back into the hospital and in a rehab center for a month. But Billy (my brother) took a more permanent journey this December. He too had been having health trouble, but we didn't know how serious his heart trouble was until he didn't show up for Christmas Eve. Billy had passed away on Monday, December 20 without us knowing until Christmas morning.
