Not a great day - trying to make it better.

edited June 16 in EggHead Forum
We were supposed to have a lunch/gathering at my FIL’s today but his health became hospice today. He was really looking forward to today. MIL is in Lifecare because of a stroke but was also looking forward to the get together which had to be cancelled. 

My wife and I however decided to cook on so we could deliver food to the rest of the family. She made salads, cut up watermelon and I put 4 racks on the egg. BIL was going to make the other proteins but didn’t for obvious reasons. 

Used Rasta Joe’s for the rub. They won the Nugget cook off a few years ago here in Reno/Sparks and the family likes it. 

Out for for delivery now.

    I'm glad you were able to carry on with the cook.  Morale is important when you're working through these tough times and I'm glad you and your wife were able to stay the course.  Hang in there.

    Oh, so very sorry for the sad situation.  It's too sad for words that they missed out on what would have been a great day.  But still, your work and wonderful looking food surely were a gift to family who had gathered, and a great way to deal with it all,  Great job!

    To the OP: Sorry buddy.  I didn’t read the post & thought you were having a run of the mill bad day.  I’m very sorry for you & your family.  I prayed for you.

    I'm so sorry for your family.  Thoughts and prayers to you. 
    He lived a good life, was 88 and passed in his sleep after a year of struggling. Worst part was to go and get his wife from Lifecare (she had a stroke a year ago), take her to the hospital and then back.
