…and I found this picture from the first trip Gerry took to RI.  He’d never experienced a screened in porch and l-0-v-E-d, loved it.

The yellow birdbath was also near bird feeders, which brought SQUIRRELS! Gerry sat, mesmerized at the lawn full of critters, and this moment is when he finally stood up, as if to say, “Mom, can we go out there?” which is why I’m smiling.

My dad, Gerry, and me in Westerly, Rhode Island.  My home state, and home which I lived in since I was ten years old.  Those are my dad’s sexy knees to the right which I’ve proudly inherited!


About danielle

I am a rescue mom and school teacher. Gerry came to me from Texas, after he "failed" as a hunting dog. He had NOT had an easy life. I was three years divorced, and we saved each other. Last week I learned he has osteosarcoma. Our world feels upside down...while everyone else is right side up.

    Hey Danielle!
    I am also from Rhode Island! Born and raised, lived within 10 miles of where I was born until I was 43. Westerly is beautiful☺ I hope you are doing ok.

      Hi Jackie,
      I love being from RI, too! Sadly, like every other sullen teenager, I HAD to go to school out of state and wound up moving to NYC, then a bit upstate, and now even farther. Westerly has always been home. Thank goodness I have my parents there still and can visit. In fact, Turkey day will be spent there! I can’t wait to take that “I’m so full,” walk out on the beach!
      I’m doing well enough. Gerry just left me this September, almost exactly a year from his diagnosis. I don’t have children, by choice….and what not everyone understands is that I’ve lost my only child, not just my dog. I’m 49.
