I am so sorry we lost Sarah. My thoughts go out to Glenna right now. I know she is very upset. Still I am glad Sarah did not have to go through the suffering that plagued JoAnna. I remember all too well the months before her passing.
I hope Glenna gets back to us shortly so we can give her some comfort. It is difficult to have been looking after someone for so long and then to lose them.
I talked with a friend this evening and plans are shaping up for vehicles to make the move. Hopefully we can make it in one trip. I am getting anxious now. There are so many details to be considered. I really want to get this done with. The tension around here is getting greater with each passing day.
I am having a problem. I am getting too few carbs. I am trying to keep everything in balance, but I've failed miserably. I had hot cereal for breakfast with cream and butter. Almost a full day's calories there. So I had a salad with Ginger-Vinegar dressing, (no Oil) and three ounces of chicken breast, steamed for lunch. Obviously, I had way too much fat today, but I thought I could bring it back into balance. I didn't make that. So anyway, could you please post some fairly low calorie, high carb dishes for me.
I visited the links Sarah's friend, Joe, sent. I didn't know about him but the links take you to photos of where Sarah is buried and a video of the service. He put Sarah's favorite photo of Glenna and her dog in the casket. It sounded like decisions were made to honor Sarah and the person she was. Also there was a darling photo of Sarah as a little girl. Never having the opportunity to meet Sarah in person, it was nice to see a picture.

Jan, Yes I will go to the same group we went to before for Weight Watchers. DH and I tried going to another group today. However, when we got in the door I got very nervous. I did talk to one lady who takes the information and money but we decided to go to the group on Saturday we are used to.
I am not sure why I got nervous. I have not done that in ages! Maybe The LORD was telling us to go back to the group we were used to. I don't know. Anyway Saturday morning we are going to go to the Weight Watchers Group that we used to belong to. It is much closer to us.
Patty, I am not going to go to those links. I would have thought Sarah would have mentioned this man and I do not ever remember her mentioning him either.
Well I have to get ready for the Care Ministry Meeting.
GOD BLESS! Louise

Girls, I received this message this evening. Thought I would share it on here. I have never heard of this man, Sarah never mentioned him, so all I can say is beware of clicking on the links... Dear Patty,
I have the sad duty of informing you that our friend Sarah Wilkie passed away on the 13th of June.
Although I live in CA (Pasadena area), I was Sarah’s best friend. Sarah was in the hospital early in June with pneumonia. Antibiotics were not sufficiently healing her, so they had to perform surgery. When they did this, they discovered her right lung had been ravaged with cancer. She never woke up from the surgery and passed away the next day of cardiac arrest.
Although I was heartbroken I was unable to say goodbye to her, I was very happy that she did not have to find out she had terminal cancer. We were told chemotherapy was not an option given her state of health and it would only have been a matter of time before she passed. That time would have likely been quite short. I think passing without the knowledge of her true health condition was best for her.
I could tell from the way she spoke about you that she liked and cared about you very much. I will miss her very much as I am sure you will too.
If you are interested, there are some pictures and short videos related to Sarah’s funeral that you can view via the internet. Some are of a few pictures that were included in her casket with her. Some pictures and videos are of her small funeral service and the cemetery where she was laid to rest. Sarah was laid to rest on Friday, June 21 at Calvary Catholic Cemetery in Clearwater, Florida. She once told me that she didn’t relish the thought of being buried in the soggy Florida soil, so I purchased her a nice crypt in a mausoleum in a very well maintained cemetery owned by the Catholic diocese. I bought her a crypt in a smaller outdoor mausoleum so she has a nice view of a grass and wooded area. I think she would have been very happy to see where her final resting place is located. I made the trip to St. Pete to attend the funeral, say my final goodbye and make sure everything went according to plan.
I miss Sarah everyday and hope I made her life a little better. You can view the pics and videos at http://taxguyla.smugmug.com/ and then click on “Sarah”
It is hot hot hot here. Even DH has the fans turned on. Neither one of us can figure out these air conditioners. We can get the fan to blow out air but it isn't cooling. The fellow that put them in is suppose to stop by this afternoon. We also have G E coming but not until Tues. What a bummer. The one in our bedroom won't even come on to blow air. It was cool last night thank goodness.
I have a tuna pasta salad made for supper. I bought some fresh beets Tues. that I will cook for supper too.

Jan, I am so proud of you on your weight loss! You are an inspiration to me. You are doing an job!
I have to get more serious about my weight loss. So DH and I are going back to Weight Watchers. I am not sure if we will be going to the meeting today or on Saturday but we are going back! I like the program because I can be gluten-free and also vegetarian. I am not vegan anymore. It was way too hard. I do some vegan meal though. I am not even sure I will totally vegetarian but mostly vegetarian. Anyway, I have gained too much weight since the last time I went to Weight Watchers. Time now to really lose the weight and keep it off. If you have been reading my blogs, you will see that I started doing the program all ready. However, they have a new program and I am anxious to see what that is about.
Tonight I have a meeting at Church. The man who took over as the Care Ministry Pastor is having a meeting for everyone interested in the Care Ministry. He wants to start over with new ideas. I am looking forward to this meeting also.
Well, time to dance and maybe afterwards go swimming!
