We again apologize for being away from our computer. Mommy has been busy, and now there has been a death in the family. One of Mommy's brothers passed away last night.
I don't think Mommy can go to the funeral or anything. We just don't have the green papers for her to travel anywhere. Mommy's brother lived in Iowa and they talked on the phone frequently. His oldest daughter was born on Mommy's birthday when she was 16, so he did call Mommy on her birthday (easy to remember both birthdays) but was not able to stay on the phone beyond his birthday greeting to Mommy. Mommy was quite concerned. Last night his heart stopped twice, and the second time they were unable to get it started again. He had lung cancer. He was 70.
Pardon us for taking some more time away from here. Mommy needs to grieve, and I need to stay close.
ps. Mommy wanted you all to know her brother loved baseball, history, and was a veteran. He was her biggest supporter in the family.
