Jan. 27

Everyone has been so kind to me about my having to surrender Teddy back to the rescue agency . It  wasn’t the best move for Teddy, but it is for me. Hopefully, he can be helped and find someone who will be home 24 hours a day and keep him safe.

This week end Bob’s three sibs and their spouses came for a  visit. We had a  very intimate unveiling of Bob’s tombstone at the Sarasota National Cemetery.   I always find the cemetery quiet and comforting. There were at least 15 more rows of graves since Bob’s funeral. The World War II and Korea Veterans are the greatest number of people buried there.It wasn’t unusual to see a husband and wife grave stone that showed that they had died within a few months of each other. The monuments , when you look at them from a certain angle, look like rows of high rises, or a white city. The graves are precisely placed, straight lines,equal distance from each other.And  not  a stone or piece of trash  on the grounds. It looks as if they will never run out of space, but I know that is not a given.We forgot to bring stones with us to put on the grave stone, so my thoughtful brother in law, put a nickel on the stone. That was sweet.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
