Hilda called last night and Mom spoke with her today. She is at home now and sounds good but has limited mobility and, sadly, the doctors have given her three to six months due to the spread of her cancer. Hilda means so much to all of us that I thought it would be nice if we could all either call her or send her cards to let her know we love her and that she is in our thoughts. She misses everyone here very much. Her vision is limited so, if you send a card, you may want to use a Sharpie to make your message big and bold so she can read it...or write her a note on your computer with bold, enlarged font and send that to her. As you probably know, they also sell cards now that allow you to record your message so that she can hear your voice, and a song, when she opens the card. Please feel free to pass this message along to others in the family as I don't have everyone's e-mail addresses. Here is Hilda's address:
MRS. HILDA RITCHIE
FLAT 13, NORTH CLIFF VIEW
89 CRAG ROAD
and the phone # (dial it just like this):
The UK is 4 hours ahead of us right now; 5 hours ahead when our clocks fall back next week.
Love to all,
