I never intended to wait this long to post, and I was ready to report on Australia...but last Saturday I got a text from my dear friend Mary telling me her husband, Neil, was in critical condition at the hospital due to the H1N1 virus. After stuggling for days, Neil passed away last Wednesday night.
I am so sad for Mary and her kids. I'm sad for me. Neil has taken fabulous care of my yard for two summers. I will miss his attention to detail and pride in what he did. I will miss his dependability and stability. Neil was always there and now he isn't.
I am sad.
