Yes she will Jim, my aunt Dorthy was always special to me, she never ever forgot my birthday, when I was a baby, she used to feed me hersey candy bars, and always made me a choclate cake on my birthdays, Her hunband died about 30 years ago from lukemia and she had two sons many years yonger than me, Steven and Stanly, Steven was in the navy staioned at San Dieago and was killed in a motorcycle wreck about 20 years ago, Stanly is all thats left besides his daughter, he also had a son but he was killed in an auto accident about 10 years ago. she wanted to die at home and was released by her own wishes two days ago, and my uncle drove up yesterday to see her, he left at 7 am and she passed away at 9. I will be one of the paul bearers as soon as everything is arranged. Grubstake

I'm sorry for your great loss but nothing can take away the good memory you have of her for things past.The good ones that have to leave us don't have to wait for the next connection because a angel comes down direct and takes them home.

God Bless!

Yup, your right Chuck, she went the way she wanted too, I'm going the same way when I go. No tubes, no ressesatation, no life supprt, Already have it in writing, going to be creamated, so it doen't cost so much. I'll get to the same place. It does say, ashes to ashes, dust to dust. I may have my ashes placed at the Calif. vertrans cemetary in los Banos. or maybe put in the Merced river, I have some good memories of that place. And it a lot cheaper than a plot in a grave yard somewhere. Grubstake

Well the funeral for my aunt is Wensday at one, and on top of that, My younger brother in Fresno, had a massive stroke last night, he is in acoma and not expected to live long. to much brain damage. When it rains at my house, it pours. Grubstake

Going to have to try and get ahold of my brothers daughter, someone has to make a decission to leave or take him off of life support, It will be my mothers decission if we can't get in touch with her, and she lives in N' Carolina. Her husband is in Afganastan. Drs. say he is brain dead. what a mess for us. Grubstake

You know from the time we born into this world, we start to die, its not how rich you are, or who you are by wich God judges us, its what you have done for your friends, and fellow man, and you beliefe in god that he is our salvation and can forgive you of anything if you ask him. Thats what keeps me no being afraid to go> I'm ready. Grubstake

Yeh, I'm leaving at 5 am eberyone will meet at her house, then at 1 pm drive to the cemitary, have service, and then my wife and I will leave, so I can get home before dark, I don't see to good after dark, Then my brother will be cremated prob. Friday, and his ashes spread, then next week a memorial service for him. My brother was 57 he would have been 58 on Oct. 17th. Alcohol and drugs took there toll on him, he has been sick for along time, I guess he has done every drug there was to do in his life, and stayed drunk most of his life, His son and daughter are both in jail for drugs, I was in Nam when it all started, my mother found him and my other brother in the closet sniffing glue, and he has gone down hill from there. I tried to help him get clean serveral times, but it never took. We talked a few times by phone in the past 10 years, but I have not seen him inperson for over 20 years. Grubstake

Don't really matter, Jim, I've made my mind up on some things, and after things at the home front, quite down, I'm going to be following my brother soon. Got no reason to go on, I'm just calling it quits.Theres an old saying Jim, without hope you got nothing, I just had my hope taken away alittle while ago. Grubstake

Our family just put my brother in law to rest, 52 years old died from liver cancer it took 1 month from the day they found it for it to kill him, he was brave and never whimpered one damn time . He's leaving behind my sister 44 and there 2-1/2 year old daughter ( the miracle baby ) that was the real hard part for him.

His honor and gratitude was unbelievable especially leaving behind so damn much it worried him deeply how those girls would do without him and our family will pull together and help thats all we can do.

Hang in there Gary someone always has it worse.
