View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

Jeannie Baxter, 1914-2006

My Grandmother, Jeannie Baxter, passed away yesterday.

She was often described as spunky and feisty. She most certainly was.

The last few years - and especially the last year after the death of her only daughter (my mother) - have been difficult, so this is one of those deaths that, while sad, is welcome.

Say hi to the Boss for me, Nana. And give Mom a hug.

May she be granted eternal rest, Mr. Strong. My grandmother -- Nani -- about five years your Nana's junior and a resident at St. Ann's, is suffering from progressive dementia. I fear she won't be with us for very much longer.
