Thanks guys!

Her wish was no services. She is still here at home and will be all nite. The Mortuary will be here at 8:30am with a casket. We will set her in it and go directly to the grave, which is over near Mossycreek cycles. Sharon and I have cleaned her up and dressed her in her pretty pink jammies that she loved.

For you guys that want to make a donation, THANK YOU!! We feel that the WRMC Hospice would benifit most. They were GREAT! No cost to us at all and that is from the donations they get, so if we can help someone else in their last days, thats what we would like. If we needed them, they would come out, any time, nite or day, week day or weekends, no questions asked. Wonderful people, and my aunts nurse, Ms Jane, was the best!

Charlie has her name to make the donation in name of.

It's been a long and tiring 6 months but I would not have it any other way. She was so afraid of dying in a hospital and I promised her that I would not let that happen, and I stuck to that promise. She passed here at home on the mountain, her home.

Auntie

Sorry to hear about your Auntie passing away. You sure did the right thing by her to let her have her wish to not go to the hospital. My father did the same thing, and Hospice was great in so many ways. A great bunch of people work for them.

I second that on the seats. I was impressed with the improvement as I hate 206 seats. Nothing like the new high back crash attenuation seats in the A-Star though. Heck even the old low backs in the A-star are much better. I sit on one of those beaded seat cushions and they make a world of difference. Way better than the Oregon Aero cushion I paid $200 bucks for, but I still use the back rest from that cushion in place of the PHI custom one. Sitting on those beads in the summer is great cause the airflow can go under you legs and butt and let the sweat dry out once you climb up in cool air.

Sorry about you Aunt Doc. We can all only hope to have as long a run as she.

I know exactly how she feels. You're a good man for keeping a promise like that.

Doc, Been keeping up with your family. Was sad to hear she had passed . How lucky you are to have such a great Aunt. She was blessed with a caring family. What a class act. A long journey but well worth it in the end. A big AMEN for the hospice folks. They were great with Dad.
