- I'm a wife, mom, grandmother and great grandmother. I try to be creative - sometimes it works, most times it doesn't. I'm my own worst critic! I'm self taught in a lot of my crafts, but have taken quilting classes and most recently a beginner's rug hooking class. I enjoy both crafts tremendously. I'd like to learn to be a better gardener.

As most of you know - I retired from work this past Friday (August 2). I was so excited and happy when I got up that morning. Then on my way to work I remembered to turn on my personal cell phone and got the special ring that I had a message. So I drove on into work thinking it was my sister calling to be the first to congratulate on retiring. When I parked my car I listened to my message and it was her husband telling me that she had died at 1:30 Friday morning. No explanation of why or what happened... Even though I'd been expecting it as she had been having heart problems since she was 30 and in 2000 she had by-pass surgery that she just never completely bounced back from. Over the past 3 weeks she was calling and telling me about the problems she was having and I was encouraging her to get to the doctor. Well, apparently she passed out at home, her husband called 911, they took her to the hospital around 11:30 Thursday night and she died at 1:30 in the morning. Her husband had opted to go home when they told him she still hadn't regain consciousness. So we'll be heading down for a celebration of her life. So...mixed emotions - I'm happy to be retired but sad that she's gone. She was only 57 years old...
