Spent at least an entire day down the rabbit hole of ancestry.com.
Dave's mother, Dorothy, passed away peacefully in her sleep only a few days before she turned 89. Dave was fortunate to be able to spend that last day with her.
He flew out before I did, so for once I had a window seat on the plane...I hope to use some of the pictures in my artwork...
And, even though we will miss Dorothy very much, it was wonderful to have such support from the family - and, though the reason was sad, it was wonderful to see almost all of the kids, some of the grandkids, and even a great-grandbaby.
After the memorial service, we went to celebrate Dorothy at Mimi's Restaurant -
And, the next day, after the internment service, we spent more time visiting with each other

Proof that it's possible to be sad and happy at the same time - I know that so much family support meant the world to Dave and I felt proud to be part of such a beautiful family. It was especially wonderful that the kids helped Dave with things that needed doing and hugged him as much as possible!
Dave and I stayed the week and left the following Monday - and, to be honest, I hope these are the last pictures I take in Vegas (not my favorite place)...
|on the side of IHop...happy face!|
Had pictures made of my entries into the DAFA Art Show and the Obtainium Show:

VESSEL I (for Obtainium)
Had a blast at the DAFA meeting/tea party -
