Dixie Peach: Rest well, sweet lady

Cooler than the other side of the pillow.

Rest well, sweet lady

A woman who has taught me volumes about dignity, integrity, faith, strength, courage and hope has passed on. I take comfort that she now rests in the arms of her Lord. And my heart is broken for those of us she leaves behind, especially her children.

May those who grieve her passing find comfort and peace at this painful time.

God bless you, Ginni. And thank you for blessing my life.

Argh! Sometimes I hate Blogger. I just sent this long comment and it farted on me. So here I go again and I'm copying before I post.

I've been back and forth all day happy for Ginni that she is with God and no longer suffering but so very sad for her kids, Karen, Aunt Joan and the rest. I've teared up at times all day long.

You'll love how sometimes the best laid plans can go awry here. This afternoon I decided that I wanted to sit out with a drink when I got home. E had spent the afternoon cleaning the deck and I wanted to do nothing more than fix myself a big ol' amaretto and pineapple juice and enjoy the spring evening.

So I did just that - fixed my drink and one for E then decided that the little dogs needed some sunshine and it's time for them to get used to being in the backyard with Rikka. Out we went must to the annoyance of the little dogs because Rikka is so big and plays way too rough.

We'd no sooner gotten out there when the battle began between Sneauball and Rikka and little Sneauball was winning. I told E just to let them fight it out and I sat down. Well, of course, they had to move the battle to where I was and Rikka hit the table, spilling my drink all over herself, Sneauball, and the deck.

Instead of enjoying our drinks and the deck, E and I have spent the last 2 hours bathing and grooming two dogs and a cat. It was something that had to be done but I'm sure ticked that it got bumped to the top of the list ahead of my drink and deck. OY!

Baby doll, this is simply not a great day all around!

I feel so badly for Karen and Ginni's kids and the rest of the family. What a great loss this is for them.
