A Sad Start to the New Year...


Joan's Mother passed away yesterday.  She had a myriad of health issues over the last decade, but always rallied in the face of each situation.  When she broke an arm and a leg on the same side (that is a VERY tough situation) 8 years ago, while at a rehabilitation nursing home she said, "I am one tough Grandma."

Indeed.

According to her wishes, she will be buried in Nebraska, where she was born.

I have to dig around to see if I have any longjohns - we will be heading to the frozen northland.

Rest in peace, Delores.  You raised 6 great kids.  Times were often not easy.  The fact that all 6 are strong-willed, hard-working, kind and ethical is a tribute to you.
