Sad Day

It rained here today. We really need it. I received some sad news from my friend DeDee today. Our dear friend Gin, who was part of our grief support group passed away this morning from a heart attack. She was in her early 80s. She joined our group a little over a year and a half ago after losing her husband Bob due to complications from an automobile accident. They had been married for over 60 years and Gin was having a very difficult time coming to terms with her grief. She had mentioned several times that she sometimes wished she could just go and join her husband. Gin was a fun, feisty lady and she was a joy to our group. She always said she didn't want to lose her independence and she hated it when something kept her from coming to group. We will all miss her very much. It was a perfect day to make Hiker more treats on the Bake A Bone. Also going to give some of them to Jean's dogs for Christmas. While working on the treats, got a call from Ruth (another group member). I had called her to tell her about Gin's passing but got her voice mail. Ruth called me back saying she just felt like she wanted to talk to someone from the group after hearing about Gin. I had also called Carol from group, but she said Jane had already called her.
