Sorry to hear, Maggie, but at some point they are living for us at discomfort to them. We don't want to, but we have to let them go. Our sympathies are with you.

Maggie, such a bittersweet end to a portion of a family story...comforting to know they are together for eternity. May they all be under God's watch.
I'm glad you have reached your destination safely and can rest a bit. Your daughter and SIL will certainly benefit from your strength and courage. Bless you, Maggie.

Thanks, everyone.

She was a good woman, and a strong woman.

Doug's Dad died suddenly the day before his 4th birthday, leaving her with a 4 and 7 year old to raise by herself....which she did, not remarrying until they were grown.

Not because there weren't offers, but because she was a schoolteacher and had "seen too many men lose their heads over their step daughters". This in the 50's and 50's, before such things were really acknowledged. She knew, because she saw it and heard about it from her students.

So, raise them she did, because what are you going to do? Sink or swim...she chose to swim. I am glad to have known her.


Gabrielle is making homemade spaghetti and meatballs for dinner, Joseph has made a garlic and olive oil dip for fresh bread, and his sons are coming. Nice.


Maggie

Ah... We just canceled our site at CanOpener this year. We swapped with AirHammer.
Maggie keep monitoring the thread and you may get a spot.

On the train into the big city, after a wonderful visit with two of the nicest people I know. Will see them again at Alumalina in a couple of months.

Picked up my band of roses ring from their local jeweler this morning....he put two, tiny, sterling silver balls in the inside of the ring, to size it down for me without cutting it again....also polished it to such a brilliant shine that it nearly blinds the eye.

Looking forward to seeing darling daughter and SIL this afternoon.

Settled in with my daughter and hers....he is handling this all well, taking it in stride and seeing the diabetes as a wake up call. Yes, that's what it was, and he was lucky it wasn't worse.

Had a delicious dinner in a neighhborhood steak house last night,,,.one of the nice things about big cities, being able to easily walk to anything.

We are going to the Tenement Mueseum in Chinatown today, they have tickets for one or the living history exhibits. If you have never been to one of these, they are fascinating looks into life in the tenements of NYC a hundred years ago or so.
