About Me

My photo
I am a retired English teacher and department head, the mother of three, grand mother of three, and have been married to the same man for 42 years. I subscribe to Dr. PM Forni's concept of Civility. I was born in South Philadelphia and grew up in the 'burbs. I love soft pretzels and cheesesteaks, the Phillies, the Eagles, and San Diego. I love being Mom, Aunt Kathy, Nona Kathy, and Teacher. I spend a lot of time in my gardens in the spring and summer, and in the winter I plan what I'm going to plant. I also am an avid reader and photographer.

Just thought I'd let everyone know that 22 of the 29 houses in our neighborhood have decorated for Chris and her family, even households that do not celebrate Christmas. I continue to be awed by the kindness around me.
Chris passed on Wednesday at 5:00 surrounded by her family.

I am sorry to hear of her passing as well. But now the lights will shine in her honor.

Bless you and your neighborhood.

What a wonderful thing to do for someone. I'm so glad that your neighborhood did this to honor this woman and comfort her family.

I'm so sorry you lost your neighbor. But just think of the joy you and the others gave her in her final days. I think you are all just wonderful!

You've made a memory that you'll always have and what you did meant so much to the family. And, your outside decorating is all done. All good.
