This year was kinda the same old, same old..the baby would be one, Auntie Esther would be 91. I put a birthday card in the mail to her on Wednesday..
Auntie Esther on her 90th birthday December 10, 2009
While were were gone to Jens we heard the news that Auntie Esther had died. We were in to visit with her on Tuesday afternoon, she was cheerful and was glad to see us. She was my oldest blog reader..she told me “They get me up in the wheelchair and I get over there to the computer and read your blog.” She knew she was dying, she was looking forward to going to heaven to see her Lord and Savior and to see her Jim again…she shared that with us over the past few weeks. It was her decision not to go back to the hospital anymore and she told us that she was getting very tired. Thursday morning she died, one day before her 91st birthday. She will celebrate in Heaven this year.
These are some of the people who were very happy to see her.

I can hear Uncle Jimmy’s big old booming voice saying “What took you so damn long?” :)
