Mom was sleeping soundly when I arrived at the house today, and I don’t think she moved a muscle in the hour or so I was there. Even when I kissed her and laid my hands on top of hers, she didn’t budge. The girls said she’d had two Ensures and had slept most of the day, but did say a couple of sentences just as clear as a bell. Although I was sorry I missed that, I was just happy to see her resting so peacefully – dressed in her Steeler garb.

While I was there, I visited with a couple of the ladies and had a wonderful conversation with Miss Betty. I love to hear her talk about going shopping downtown; talking with her just makes me wish even more that I had known her  back in her heyday!
