Since she has been ill she has not been able to do that, so the rest of us pitch in and bring appetizers and help make things special and we also have just decided to make things easy and do things like pizza. She still is a great hostess though even though she is bound to a wheelchair and she is always asking if people need something else to drink, etc. It is sad that those days are gone, but I'm so thankful for all the good memories and the main thing is that we are together and I am so thankful that she is still with us!
Jim and Alice with Eric and I. We had a very nice evening visiting with family. Eric's mother's health has been declining quite rapidly, so having these family gatherings is so special. I am so thankful that we have been doing these kinds of things for many, many years. Family is so important.
