Happy New Year!  Hope 2018 is a good year for you.

Saturday, December 30, 2017, I went to my great aunts funeral.  She died December 22, 2017, and was 99 years old. It was not a surprise when she died.  She was ready to die.  She mistakenly believed she was 100 years old. Nobody wanted to correct her, so they had a 100-year birthday party a year early.  She earned that respect.  Lorraine was a very generous and was very independent lady.  She had a bad car accident when she was 94 years old and that is what slowed her down.  Before the accident, she was still shoveling her own snow, gardening, and driving.
