I'm so happy for her. The girl was 92, moderate dementia and no sickness or pain to speak of. She was just tired. I would be too . old age got her and i think its a beautiful thing .
the NH staff are probably the biggest losers . they lost one loving and mischievious old friend . i feel bad for them .

The stories you posted about your Aunt Edna remind me so much of my childhood days on the farm with my grandparents. So many fond memories. Sorry for your loss. Glad you have the good memories of the past.

We still joke that my Mom is organizing St Peter's filing system "to improve the process". I am sure Edna is in the fast lane wherever she decides to go...

I'm so sorry for your loss Captain. I have so enjoyed all of your stories. May she rest in peace...well, rest anyway, peace would not suit her...rest in mischief and debauchery. Fly free Edna!

Captain....thank you for this post. It's an elegant eulogy to a great lady in true captain style: short, blunt, to-the-point, a little bit rude and stab-in-the-heart sincere...add in a dash of hope for the rest of us....
As you know by now, you made Edna very real to all of us with your crazy wonderful tales of the great (and sometimes not so great) times that you 2 shared....
So....very sad at the news but, glad to know that Edna's spirit and legacy will live on. She had a great, long ride .... and she knew how to enjoy it. Thank you for letting all of us share and appreciate it along the way.

Cap, somehow I have a feeling you have only just begun to share the memories you have of your aunt. You have always shown us your love for your Aunt Edna. I am sorry you lost your friend (and glad she went peacefully).
