Very nice Christmas and holiday season.  Spent lots of time with our son's families.  Thanksgiving, twins birthday on Dec. 1, Christmas and New Years.  Takes awhile to spool down.

August  2012
We lost Mom on the 17th, just past her 89th birthday.  She had many visits before she passed from her children, Pixie, Roger, Carl, Sue and I, as well as visits with her grand-children and great-grandchildren.  It was tough to lose our Mom, but she is in a better place and watches over all of us with her wisdom and spirit.

Our family also gathered to do a yard/garage sale for a few days, a week after Mom passed.  Sue was still there from Alaska, Kathy still from Canada, Bonnie and I from Palm Desert and Pixie and Joel from Hemet who live near Mom.

Here is Mom's final resting place, just as she wanted it.  We all love you, Mom.
