This is one of the hardest post I'll ever do on my blog. After a short illness on the morning of December 21, 2009 my Mom passed away. She was active and working two part time jobs until November when her liver said it had enough.The picture below is of her and my younger brother Steve polishing cars. Her dear loves after her family, were cars and baseball! I was fortunate to be with her every Thursday for lunch and shopping, but before we took her car "Ruby" out for the day she had to dust her off and put clean towels on the floor so we would not get the floor mats dirty.
As hard as this is to live with we all had a wonderful time at her bed side and after her death. Manor Care here in Reno took care of her on her last days. They allowed our entire family to be with her at all hours of the day and night. Sister Tracy came from Texas with her three girls and husband. Steve and his wife Lisa were up from Vegas. Mike and I live here in town so at any given time Mom had from 5 to 15 people with her. Her brother, nieces, nephews, sons, daughters, grandchildren, great grandchildren and even her beloved dog Dudley were there to see her off. Up until her last four days she was talking and joking with family and care givers. Her last wish was to tell everyone that she had a wonderful life!
So for my Mom we all ask for everyone to do an random act of kindness in Ginger's name!
