Aunt Elinor

Cousin Joe went to visit Elinor earlier this evening & she seems to not be improving very much at all in having a difficult time of it. Her daughter Michelle was there with her mother & Joe as well. It appears she is in the severe late stages of her lung condition of COPD with a few other complications. Michelle is trying to be positive & hopeful that her mother will be strong enough to join Michelle & her own family at home. If that can take place Aunt Elinor will be put in Hospice at this time. She will be kept comfortable as her lungs are pretty restricted as of now in breathing & oxygen which can also be very painful.

Again, if there are any other changes in Aunt Elinor, Joe will update us all. I will be away with my daughter Kaitlin for the next 10 days though it is all about work. In speaking of my Kaitlin after being with Fetzer Winery now for only 6 months she was presented with an outstanding company award this past Monday after returning from Pebble Beach from the "Wine & Gourmet Food with Star Chef's in the Festival of Events" This award was so well deserved in the fact that she came upon some unexpected changes in her own life in the need to leave Little Rock in moving to Healdsburg in the Napa Valley. With the power of ongoing faith & prayer our girl Kaitlin seems to have bounced right back at this time.

On another level my daughter Sarah Caroline has been an outstanding Realtor with Coldwell Banker down here in Long Beach for many years now. Sarah has a partner in Heather Burke in which they are a working team together. Both of these women recieved recognition for their ongoing hard work as being voted the #1 working team in a very high division that she & Heather are apart of together in serving so many of their new, current along with their past clients. The two of them also give back to their community in the causes they believe in especially the Schools, their Church Parish, Arts & Sports Divisions. Sarah & Heather are a "Class Act from A-Z" year after year leaving mom & their father Patrick to be so very proud of both of our daughters.

Kaitlin flew in today from Santa Rosa to spend Easter Brunch with grandma, myself & a hopeful few other on Sunday. Life is good & getting better all the time. Blessings to all for a wonderful Easter Sunday. Love, Andie & Mom..xoxoxo
