I don't know who has heard and who hasn't, but I wanted to make sure everyone knows that our dear friend Donna, aka SoCal, is on life support in the hospital. She has been through so many courses of chemo and fought like the dickens, but there is nothing more the docs can do now. Her DH, Jerry, has been so kind, telling several of her friends what was going on. She is surrounded by people who care for her and she knows that we are all thinking of her. Jerry decided her friends from DG and here should know, too.

In January, wcgypsy, weegy, TwinLakesChef, Donna's sister, Sue (you might have seen her wonderful art work) and yours truly had a lunch party and Donna's house. Here we are, trying on her hats. What a motley crew - Donna looks the best! I can tell you it was a great day, with a lot of laughter (and food!). The next time I spoke with her, she said it was so much fun and she was looking forward to the next one. This is how I will think of her from now on.

Thank you, K....though if I'd known you were going to post that pic, I would have asked you to do a little photoshop work on 'part' of it. We might add that this morning Dave sent a wonderful e-mail to Donna to let her know that he and Trish are thinking of her also

Well, I thought I had bought the only copy of that photo and buried it in a vault..lol....but it really should see the light of day because Donna did look really good and had a wonderful day. She 'modeled' all of her hats for us. We thought of doing one of the 'bare-it-all' calendars, but decided to settle for the hats since we didn't have enough there to do all 12 months...
Perhaps if you'd been there, Jo, we might have done '7' months though...lol..

I pray that she has an easy passing, free of pain surrounded by all her family and friends.

Its not easy for anyone when a family member and friend approaches the door that leads us to the God of our understanding.

I did not know SoCal that well but she is still a Sister of the Heart for me.

If any photo shop-ping was going to happen, that goofy look on my face would be first.
So glad we have that day to remember. :-)

Edited to add: Jo, isn't it wonderful how she kept her spirits up? I was sending her goofy emails to make her laugh - she said to send anything funny.

Did you ever notice that Sue and Weege could be sisters? In fact when I got there that day, Sue was walking in and I thought it was weege.

Yes, Sherry, especially with those hats on, because you focus on the face more.

BTW, here's another photo of Weege and Donna. Anybody else have fav photos of SoCal?

That is my favorite picture of Donna and I together. Thank you Kathleen.
I have quite a few photos from past RU's that I will go through and post here.
Kathleen and Sherry, yes that was a great day and we had a very good time. Donna looks so happy in these photos.
By the way, I changed my name from Weegy to Scrwylouie here, better fitting name for me, right Sherry?
Here's a picture of Donna with my grandbaby at a little gathering here at my house.

Oh yeah...that's such a great photo. I think I had all of the pics from that day and they were on my hotmail account that got hacked and I lost everything. That really is such a beautiful pic. Have you sent those to Jerry, or did Donna have them already perhaps?

Pointing at something very interesting, probably that Constance Elliott passiflora that Donna gave Kathleen.
