Latest News

Just the day after my last post, Grandma passed away. She was 92, but it was still tough as we had been taking care of her for almost three years since my mother-in-law died. She didn't live with us, but we moved her closer to us so we could spend more time with her and always have her with us on the holidays and birthdays and Sunday dinners as well. My dear husband spent the most time with her and he cherishes every moment.

In the last six years we have lost all our Moms. My Mom passed away in July of 2003 when she was just 60. It was ovarian cancer. We lost my Mother-in-law in January of 2007 and she was just shy of 70. It was also cancer. Now Grandma. These losses make for quiet and bittersweet holidays. And I don't care how old you are, you always need your mom.

And so, we wait anxiously for our daughter to come home from Italy so that we can be together for these quiet as they will be.
