Oh, Miss Alice

      I am saddened by the post my blogger friend wrote today.  If you read Go Ask Alice ... When She's 94   http://andreacarlisle.com  you already know that she has been taken to hospice.... which is good.  Sad, but good.  It is where she needs to be.  She has had a difficult time recently.  She wanted to make it to her 100th birthday, not far off, and I hope she can make it too --- if they can make her comfortable until then. 
     I have very little family.   I never knew my grandparents and my mother passed in her 70's ... oh my goodness it has been 23 years...  so I have really enjoyed the posts about Alice.  By sharing Alice with the world on her blog Andrea Carlisle let us get to know her mother, love her, and feel like both of them are our family.   I know the next portion of Alice's life will be difficult for her family.  I wish I could be there to help bear their burdens and give support.   
    Thank you, Andrea,  I wish you and Miss Alice peace.

  1. She will get great care at Hospice. Age is rarely kind and I hope she is comfortable and does make her hundredth. It is so hard when our virtual friends suffer.

  2. Yes. I am so sad to have just found this blog and now to be losing her. And Arkansas Patti is right about virtual friends. I wish I could do something for Alice.

  3. This was not a person that I knew until just now reading your blog and going over to look at the post about Alice. From my parents experiences and my husband's experience I know that hospice is a difficult blessing. I feel for you and your sadness.
