It was really nice to see everyone again. Christine (right) had a baby girl 7 weeks ago. Maggie (black dress) and her boyfriend are doing so well that he's moving in. Elisa (left) and her husband Tim seem close to selling their condo; and Kelley (middle left) is, of course, getting married soon. Elisa, Jen (white pants), Maggie and Christine are all teachers and are very ready for summertime. Kelley and I wish we had followed this career path every June!
Kelley's Mom was also at the shower, sick and struggling but wouldn't have missed it. She passed away a few days later. It was surreal to read Kelley's text that she was gone. I left her a voice mail that her Mom knew she would be cared for by Jordan, her husband-to-be. There's nothing else you can say. Tony and I are headed out to Grafton tonight for her memorial celebration. Kelley is a seriously tough woman and I hope that I can hold it together for her later on today!
