November 2009

While we were in Silver City, we went on several nature hikes. The weather was very comfortable for November and the air was so fresh! Below are some pictures from our walks.

Sadly, Brian’s grandmother – Udania, “Dannie”– passed away November 6, 2009. Brian and his grandmother were very close, as Brian lived with and was cared for by his grandmother for many years. Dannie was in poor health for the past 8 months, following a broken hip, then kidney dysfunction. We are thankful that she is no longer suffering, but we will all miss her immensely. Below are the pictures used to exemplify her life at her service. May she rest in peace.
