thanks, but no thanks

People are already offering to send flowers for my mama, and I appreciate the kind thoughts. But don't do that, please. Flowers just die. If you really feel generous, take the money you were going to spend on flowers and donate it to:

hospice of Savannah

or to the american diabetes association, in the name of Elva L. Smith.

Both organizations have been wonderful to my family and if you put your money there, it blooms, just like a beautiful flower. And you'll be helping a lot of people you don't even know.


Excellent choices, both.

I dropped a couple of shekels in the Hospice kitty. It sounds like they did good work with Mama.

Peace to you and yours, Rob.

I sent a little something to the hospice. You've spoken nothing but wonderful words about the care they gave your mama.

Rob, I have a card for you and your family. Would you post (or email) your mailing address again? More hugs!

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there; I do not sleep
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamonds glint on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain
I am the gentle Autumns rain.
When you awake in the mornings hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight
I am the soft stars that shine in the night
Do not stand at my grave and cry ; I did not die..

May she rest in peace..

Done. You might let folks know that they can donate online to the Hospice with a credit card.

My condolences, Rob.
