11 September 2004

Heather: Hello, Mother. How are you doing today at Alpine?

I feel fine.  I sit here and look out (the window).  Always something going on.

When Amber comes over, she fixes the bookcase.  Amber hasn’t come over lately.   O dear, I’m getting sleepy.

11 September 2004

Heather: O.K. I’ll call tomorrow. I love you.

Yes, I love you too, Heather.

12 September 2004

Heather: Hi, Mother. Today is Sunday. How do you feel?

I’m fine.  Feel very good.

Spen and Carol are happy together.

I’m reading Martin Luther King, Jr.’s book  How to Love.  It is very, very, very good.  I had a hard time to put it down.  Now I have a hard time to pick it up.  I can’t reach it.

12 September 2004

Heather: An Alpine staff member will come and help you reach it, I’m sure. Tell me something about a couple of your great grandchildren.

Meagan Elizabeth is a very pretty little girl.  Meagan Elizabeth is a pretty name.

12 September 2004

Heather: The fact that Elizabeth is also a family name really adds to the name, I’m sure.

Jessica, she is a jolly little girl.  She is always dancing around and always full of life.  She is very cute too.

All (of my great grandchildren) are lovely children.  Can’t find anything wrong with any of them.
