in memory of

April 11th, 2011 at 08:18 pm

My mom and her sisters decided to tell everyone to donate to the charity of their choice for my grandma instead of selecting one. So I donated $100 to the food pantry that I often donate food to. Mom wasn't happy with the decision since she thinks they won't know who donated to what and won't be able to thank them.

They got an offer on her house while they were cleaning it out Friday. She lives in a very small town, less than a hundred people. The neighbors offered $35,000 which is a little low, but it means it is done with and no one has to make a 2 hour drive during the summer to water the lawn, etc. It's extremely hot down there in the summer time. They might be able to get $50K, but maybe not and it might take forever. None of them needs the money and I think it would be better to get rid of it now, but not my decision, thank goodness Smile

I finished reading the library book A Hard Day's Knight by Simon R. Green. Sci/Fi - excellent.

    Donating to a charity sounds like a great way to remember someone.
