I want to thank you all so very much for all of your heart felt prayers. After fighting valiantly since the spring my mother-in-law was united with her husband of 56 years. We were able to bring her brother who was 103 years old to her bedside in time as well as a well loved niece and her grandchildren. In her memory we will contributing to the War Dogs foundation to reunite military dog handlers with their partners. Again, thank you all for your prayers, gardeners are really special people.

Yehudith-- So sorry for your loss....At the same time--I cannot even imagine someone
living to the age of 103!!! Glad you could gather all the family--young and old--to
sent off your MIL to be with her beloved one.
I LOVE the belief that one can do that....It makes the parting almost a celebration--
NOT a sad, nourning event.
Stay strong! Best wishes, Gita
