Those of you who know Annie from this forum - she has been ill with
cancer and is now in the hospital, and it is almost over.

I met her once, and she would send me fruitcake at Christmas. Such a
lovely, lovely lady.

The note below is from her daughter (Marian was Annie's real name).

Hello all.  I am sorry to send out a blanket email.   This is
Elizabeth, Marian's daughter.  Mum went into hospital Christmas
morning.  We had a family meeting yesterday, with Barbara present
from Nova Scotia, and were informed that Mum has days, perhaps a few
weeks to be with us.  She is very calm now, knowing that Barry will
be taken care of when she is gone.  We have arranged for him to come
to Dundas to stay at a retirement home there.  Originally the two of
them were to move so they could be closer to me.  Now that things
have changed, I'll get Barry over there when he's ready.

She has also been assured by the doctor and me that her passing will
be easy.  With all the drugs available now, the nurses have
everything at their fingertips to give her for any type of symptom.
This has eased her mind, as it must be very frightening to know the
end is coming,  the "what ifs" take over and one's  imagination can
get out of hand.

I would ask that you all pass on the news to the town and the cafe
as you people have been such wonderful correspondants.  Also, to
Barry's friends, please keep in touch by mail, as he is not using
the computer.  His eyesight is very poor now.  I'll be staying with
Barry for the duration, and will check mum's mail if you wish to
contact me here.  Just write in the subject line Elizabeth and I
will be sure to check.

Thank you all. I will be in touch.

Sincerely,
Marian's favourite youngest daughter, Elizabeth
