Doug's Mother died yesterday afternoon, just slipped away. She never did experience any pain, but her body had been trying to die especially this last week or so.....and then, she was just gone.
She is with Doug, now, and that's where she has wanted to be ever since he died. I am glad she went without experiencing the pain we were all fearing, and can't feel too badly for a woman who had lived almost a century and only lost living independently a year ago. We should all be so lucky.
A good woman, who lived a good life, and raised a good man. Here's to you, Louise.
Another mass shooting...I have come to expect something like that every time I open my news page.
. What..is..the world..coming..to.
May their souls rest in peace, and may peace find its way to their survivors.
Made it to the Newark airport only an hour late yesterday....the delay was not in Chicago, but with rain out here. Am safely ensconced with Joseph and Gabrielle, and enjoying some time with these fine folks. Rallies are for snatches of time with lots of people...this is a visit
On to NYC by train tomorrow, where my daughter will send a car to Penn Station for me, and I will get to see where she works.
SIL is struggling to wrap his head around his body's revolt, the huge changes that has brought to his life, and getting his blood sugar down. A process, not an event, I will remind him.
Gabrielle had to go into her local jeweler yesterday, so I left my ring of roses for them to bring down to a 6.
I hate to be without it, but the sizer is hideous and doesn't keep the ring from slipping around anyway. I just have to keep adjusting it so I don't have to look at the sizer. I hate it.
They are going to cut it down and have it for me at least by Friday morning.
Local, family owned places....good.
