One Clean Refrigerator

Well, hope you don't mind a little dark humor; but does anyone out there know what the mold spore Cladosporium elatum looks like? Come visit our refrigerator!

Today, Jane's sister Terry and my sister Pam took EVERYTHING out of the frig and cleaned it thoroughly.

After discarding the gross, moldy, smelly, unidentifiable items, the refrigerator looked like this:

Other than ridding the home of some interesting smells, the day was rather uneventful, as Jane had a pretty good day. She is becoming more sleepy, and much weaker; which I am told are some of the early signs of decline.

We took some time to read all of the note cards that everyone filled out at Woodstock's, and our hearts were warmed by the loving words each of you wrote.

Some were written by younger kids; one which stands out said, "Dear Jane, I am sorry you are so sick. But when you die, you get to meet the Lord! He will be happy to see you." Indeed, He will.

On the reverse side of the note was this image:

God sure DOES look happy to see her, huh?

Doug,

I don't know enough about computers to know how you get your graphics, but the refrigerator one is hilarious.

Wish you and Jane could have been at Woodstocks. It was great to participate and feel like at least we could do something, no matter how small, to help. The place was packed.

Doug,
Did you get the pie I left on your doorstep this am at 7:15. If it is still out there, don't put it in that spotless refridgerator cause it's probably full of little crawly things.

I can't seem to get it off my mind that soon Jane will join our fellow softball friend Lynn. I can just hear them laughing together: Jane, kind of soft and low and Lynn, VERY loud and exuberant. But oh, what a joyful reunion there will be!
