Our lives now include living at one of the nicest senior communities in the USA. Rossmoor in Walnut Creek, CA. We will still travel in the RV but not full time.

My Aunt Mae just passed away and fortunately Russ and I got a call from my cousin Diana, that we should come visit in Boise.  So we did and had a wonderful visit with dad’s brother, Uncle Harold, and his wife Mae.  She really wanted to put on a good show, had Diana fix her hair, and even asked for a scotch.  No way did she want to talk about dying. We laughed over old stories and our lives.  I was maybe 2 when my uncle came  back from the Navy, married the bookkeeper at my Granddad’s furniture store.  He has loved her for all their time and he too would not discuss that she was dying.

I am so glad we went and have that memory as a week later she passed.  We were there for the funeral too.  I have such lovely cousins who have been so good to their parents.  Diana, a nurse, has really had a heavy load recently and I am so thankful I could be of support to her-as we have had the experiences of dealing with my parents as they have been through this.

The photos that I took are meant for family to see and share.  Many of you will recognize my nephew Zak and his family, my brother Scott and sister in law Rita and so on.  Hopefully the Mc Donoughs and Kerns will enjoy the photos of friends and relatives.  I love the photo of Russ and Aunt Mae.
