    Sorry if this post is a little erratic, I'm dealing with two Golden Retrievers who stayed by my Mum's side for the last three years of her life.  Advanced Parkinson's disease was what took her and the dogs were in her Hospice room (at home) when she left us.  She was a housewife during the middle period of her life and when the nest was almost empty she worked as a secretary at the local school for kids with "special needs" for 25 years.  When I acted up she would scold me and sign at the same time, what a lady she was, she tried to hold on to her sanity the best way she could and was classy until the very end.  She fought until she could fight no more and died after fourteen days when she stopped eating the soup I made for her until she wouldn't eat any longer.  She passed in November.  Tonight I made her favorite meal (and mine) - broiled lamb chops and Yorkshire pudding in her honor, lots of garlic and rosemary.  Dad and I had a nice dinner together and didn't really talk about her too much because we have already been down that road.  Here's to you John, and your Mum.  And of course, my Mum.
