08-27-06: Aunt Carol Peterson (Dad’s sister) is dying. She experienced many co-morbidities and quality-of-life issues toward the end of her life, including Crohn’s Disease and type II diabetes.
We drove to the Blue Springs, Missouri area to join the family. The drive up was smooth. The dogs traveled well and Abby had a long nap.
08-30-06: Carol died at 12:45 pm at age 66.
09-02-06: This evening in Blue Springs feels like late October in Oklahoma.
Uncle Wes and Cousin Lori seem okay.
09-05-06: Funeral at the same chapel where Dad and Carol’s mother’s funeral was in early 1996.
Our time with the family was good. Abby was the goodwill ambassador. “Abby is very easy to be around.” ~Lori
