I entered a blog about her on her last birthday, her 92nd, on August 5, 2007. She was at Alden Terrace at the time and had been admitted, but we didn't tell her because of her feelings about nursing homes, something she fought against with vigor. I mean, real vigor.
I made a copy of it and showed it to her. It was supposed to go to the other folks at the nursing home to familiarize them with her.
She looked at it, and I'm not sure if she was joking about it or not, she said, after reading it, "This is my obituary."
You can read it by going back into the blog archives to August 5, 2007.
