Goodbye Janet Dunbar Hamilton. - Mental Feng Shui

Goodbye Janet Dunbar Hamilton.
About 15 minutes ago, Jim's mom, Janet Hamilton, died. She was in hospice care in Lansing, MI, and had been ill with cancer, fighting bravely for over a year. She fought the good fight (being over 90), and even went through chemo three times; I admire her strength and tenacity.

She was a funny, beautiful, highly intelligent, stubborn, wonderful woman who led a very full life. She was going to the symphony on weekends, reading the paper and doing the crossword puzzle right up until the end.

She was the closest I've had to a mother-in-law; she will be sorely missed.

If anyone wishes to send condolences to Jim, he is in Michigan, at their family home:

3500 Glasgow Drive
Lansing, MI 48911

Or contributions can be made to the American Cancer Society.

The State of the Cranium is: : sad sad

Hey sweetie;

Mom and I are at my cousin's right now and will be heading up to Gram's soon. So we'll be home late.

You doing OK?

Call me if you need me there. Remember you can call others too.

Am okay. Just sad. And when Jim calls and crys, I cry with him .... it's sad, but not too bad.
