'Laura' Opens Tonight
On Thursday, November 6, the
Gulfport Community Players will be
opening a 3-act play entitled, "Laura"
at the Catherine A. Hickman Theater
of Gulfport for a two week run. The
play was written by Vera Caspary and
George Sklar way back in the mid-
40s. It is a murder mystery typical of
the 1940s, complete with fedora hats,
trench coats, and assorted strange
characters as the "usual suspects".
The play is directed by Vic Carr, and
he has a very strong cast to work with,
including Suzy Devore as Laura, Eric
Dawson as the detective, Norm Nash
as Waldo, and Greg Milton, Mary
Anyan, Ellie LeVine, Scott Bourdon,
and Charlie Alaimo.
The play will run from November 6
through November 16, with curtain
times at 8 p.m. on Thursdays,
Friday, and Saturdays; and 2 p.m.
on Sunday.
If you've been on this earth for
much more than a few years, you
may remember "Laura" as a superb
movie with a great musical theme
made back in 1944. The play is the
story of a cynical detective who is
investigating the murder(?) of an'
advertising director named Laura.
The more the detective delves into
Laura's life and views her portrait,
the more he becomes obsessed
with her. In fact, he falls in love
with her, a phantom. Or is she?
As the detective returns to Laura's
apartment once again in his ongoing
investigation, Laura suddenly enters
through her front door, very much
alive. Now it appears that Laura's

best friend was the real victim of the
crime, and all the evidence points to
Laura as her killer. The detective, now
hopelessly in love with Laura, seems
about to pin the crime on her, when
suddenly, the real murderer shows up
and tries to do away with the girl he
meant to kill in the first place-Laura.-

Frank is an intimate and moving
portrait of spirited activism and

"Our Lady Queen of Harlem," by
Trina Rodriguez is a film about
faith and rebellion. When the New
York Archdiocese locked the doors
of their beloved church, a group
,of parishioners in East Harlem
took matters into their own hands.
Armed with nothing but a set of
folding chairs and photocopied bible
readings, this impassioned family
of worshipers is reclaiming its faith
and redefining the word "church".

Mullet Toss: Our Heritage
By Cathy Salustri

When Megan O'Reilly, Elizabeth k f
Brown-Worthington, and Michael
Taylor competed against one other to
toss a freshly dead mullet into a kiddie- \
size swimming pool at Gulfport's
Birthday Bash earlier last month, they .
probably had no idea they were taking
part in one of the state's time-honored
traditions.
Although many mock the maligned
mullet festival, few recent Floridians '-^'
realize how strongly the fish factors into
Florida's heritage. While the sailfish
has the honor of State Saltwater Fish,
many would argue that title belongs
to the mullet, whose relationship with
Floridians predates sport fishing and
tournaments.
In the eastern hemisphere Florida
mullet long ago earned the dubious
designation of an aphrodisiac. In Japan "'
people will pay upwards of $15 a pound
for mullet roe, according to Diane
Roberts, mullet expert and state food .
writer. 0
"You never want to be considered an
aphrodisiac," Florida State. University .
marine biologist Felicia Coleman says. -.
"It's disaster for the species."
Terry Tomalin, the Boating and Megan O'Reilly does her part for Florida
Fishing Expert for Visit Florida, the history as she tosses a mullet at Gulfport's
official state tourism board's web site, 98h Birthday Bash.
has researched the herbivorous fish
extensively. He calls the mullet "the most legislated fish in history", a reference
to the constitutional amendment banning using larger nets to catch mullet.
Up on the Florida-Alabama border, though, the question isn't about always
about nets or roe. Once a year, for a long weekend, the Flori-Bama lounge hosts
the annual Mullet Toss. Here folks stand on the Florida side of the border and
try to hurl a mullet as far as possible into Alabama.
Why do Floridians toss mullet? Well, "they're lighter than dwarves," Coleman
says. The Mullet Toss has also earned its own protesters, a sign, Roberts says,
that a sport has come ofage. The Animal Rights Foundation of Florida (ARFF)
said, "Mullet tossing? That's pretty gross. {Mullet} weren't made to be thrown
around. It would be worse if they were still alive, but it's still not right."
Thankfully, Megan, Elizabeth, Michael, and all the others who participated
in Gulfport's Mullet Toss were spared an ugly scene from ARFF and other
activist groups. Instead they, along with a bevy of other young Gulfportians,
got to celebrate the city's birthday, Florida style: with mullet, a kiddie pool,
and a strong throwing arm.

AMERICAN LEGION POST 125
6440 5th Avenue South 347-6085


A Ai~ii ^












-Michelle Chavis, St. Pete: "I voted YES for the amendment because I based my judg-
ment on what the Bible says; that marriage is between a man and a woman. In fact, all
my voting was based on how the Bible says we should live our lives, make daily decisions
and live by Godly principals. I voted according to the word of God. One Presidential can-
didate approves of abortion and the other doesn't. I don't think that God would approve
S* of abortion; the Bible says it's wrong. And so do I. I don't think a man and a man, or a
woman and a woman should be allowed to get married; it certainly wasn't Adam and
Steve in the Garden of Eden, it was Adam and Eve. Our parents grew up with the ideals
of marriage and strict adherence to principals. They learned to respect the teachings of
the Bible and to live by those rules. Now, these days, with the internet and lax rules and
morals, kids are seeing two guys or two girls together as a couple and it seems somehow
normal. The traditional values are gone! I have a 13 year old; she goes to private school to
keep her away from the bad stuff that goes on. I regulate her internet and we go to church
twice a week. I am having our fourth child in December and we try to raise all our kids to
live as Jesus would, in a happy, healthy and God-loving environment."


Bill Ten Broeck, St. Pete: "I voted NO because a marriage is a union between two -
people. The Government should not care what that union consists of. If they say that
two people can form a union, the makeup of that union shouldn't be the Government's.' '
business. I feel that religious influefices are the rational mandate for making the a .
argument that only a man and a woman can have a marriage. I think that violates
the separation of Church and State. I've been with my partner' for 19 years; that's a S
marriage as far as we're concerned. Are we any less committed to one another than a i
man and a woman who have been together for that long? We were both VERY lucky "'.
to have been accepted by my parents, who coincidentally were both very involved in
the church. But they love us unconditionally and isn't that what true compassion and .
love is really about? To treat your fellow man with love and respect? A marriage is
a union of two people, who commit themselves to one another. Why should it matter
how that uniori is formed?" '
Andrea Oliverrothenberger, St. Pete: "I voted NO because I think people's views
are becoming more open-minded about things like same -sex couples. It's not up to
the Government to define marriage by making you get married in order to recognize
your union. There are people who are partners, whether straight or .gay; regular
people that stay together for years. They may not want to get married, for whatever
reason. Does that make them less of a couple? They have still formed a union; a com-
mitment to share household bills and other household responsibilities. Do they need
a church ceremony to make them more committed? I think if two people are willing
.' .-- to commit to ,one another, they should be recognized. As I read the amendment, it
S .said that the only recognized commitment between two people should be a marriage.
That marriage is further defined as between a man and a woman. Who can say what
any one couple's level of commitment is to one another? It should NOT be regulated
'by the Government."


Peter Rodkinson, Seminole: "I voted NO because it's none of my business; if a man
and a man or a woman and a woman want to be together, why should I care, as long-
as they operate within the laws of humanity. I lived in Seattle for 30 years, an ex-
tremely liberal area and I brought that attitude here when I moved.-I feel like if they
aren't breaking the law, why should I care? Besides, I think it's a violation of Church
and State to try and regulate this. The separation of Church and State is very clear
and for the past eight years, that line was crossed a lot. The State NEEDS to stay out
of people's personal business. If people live by the laws of humanity, they should be
allowed to live their lives in peace."

Letters


For the Common Good
Dear Editor: In reference to Mr.
Fiore's letter in last ,week's Gabber
regarding "Some Rules Need to be
Broken", I am completely amazed
* that Mr. Fiore's usual ranting is ex-
aggerated and continually portrays
Town Shores as the big bad associa-
tion.
At first, I wanted to just let this go
as we have had years of Mr. Fiore's
ranting and raving over rules and
regulations and his idea of want-
ing to do what he wants regardless
of what the rest of the community
wants. To explain to him that the
rules are made by the Association to
allow safety, peace and harmony in
the community would be like telling
him the state laws were made to al-
low safety, peace and harmony in the
state. This wouldn't surprise me if he
didn't believe in those either.
What really made me want to re-
spond to this letter is last year
when my mother passed way, she
had hospice care and I couldn't say
enough good things about Hospice.
The outpouring generosity of the
Town Shores community's donation
in memory of my mother was tre-
mendous and I'm just the property
manager. When one of the members
of the association pass away and ask
for donations to Hospice instead of
flowers, the same can be said that the
members of Town Shore's generosity
are noteworthy. I believe it would be
fair to say that Hospice is one of the
highest organizations to receive do-


nations from Town Shores.
Mr. Fiore confuses fund raisers
with solicitations.,It is our policy not
to allow for solicitation of any kind.
We welcome and encourage our resi-
dents to donate to Hospice, education
and food drives, etc. When the post
office had their last food drive, Town
Shores was the highest contributor.
The number of our residents, who
volunteer in the city of Gulfpbrt,
education system, hospitals, etc., is
notable. And, they volunteer without
wanting or receiving any recognition
or accolades.
It is a shame that one person can
write a letter such as the one Mr.
Fiore wrote which appears to dimin-.
ish those who give so much to the
community and to these worthwhile
organizations.
I would like to say once again Mr.
Fiore, the rules and regulations were
not made to be broken, but for safety,
peace and harmony of such a large
community like ours. There are ways
to change rules and regulations and
breaking them is not one of those
ways. So, next time you feel the need
to belittle the community in a news-
paper, please restrain yourself or at
least have your facts confirmed.
To those residents who were hurt
by your letter, please know that the
community and organizations appre-
ciate all of your efforts and donations
regardless of what one man may
think or say.
Gregg Fata

L AW

What Steps are.Involved
in the Probate Process?
Part I
1. Locating and Filing the Will
The first step in the probate pro-
cess is to determine whether the
deceased left a will, that is a legal
document prepared by a person
before death' directing others how
to distribute his or her property af-
ter death. If a will exists, the per-
son is said to have died testatee."
Although determining that a will
does exist might be fairly easy, find-
ing the will may be more difficult.
It is important to locate the last
will and any amendments (called
codicilss") to it. Among the places
where people commonly keep wills
are strong-boxes, file cabinets, desk
drawers, and safe deposit boxes.
If you have agreed to serve as the
Personal Representative for some-
one's estate, it is essential to learn
in advance where the person keeps
the will. If the will is iti a bank's
safe deposit box, please keep in
mind that the law requires the box
to be sealed at the owner's death.
Because you need to get a court or-
der to open a safe deposit box, it is


not the best place to keep a will.
Within ten (10) days following
death, the will should be filed by
your attorney with the probate clerk
in the county where the person lived
at the time of death. In most cases,
however, there is no need to rush to
the probate clerk's-office. If you have
recently lost a spouse or other loved
one, this is a stressful and vulnerable
time. You might want to wait a few
months, until you are feeling settled,
to begin the probate process. With
the passage of a few months' time, you
may be in a better position to tackle
the decisions and details of probate.
2. Initiating the Probate Process
Any person entitled to the de-
ceased's property as an heir, as a
beneficiary named in a will, or as a
creditor (known as "interested per-
sons") can file a written request at
the probate clerk's office to begin a
probate proceeding. This written
request is typically called a "peti-
tion for probate administration."

Guide


By Holiday Mathis
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It's
powerful to dream of the future and
all you'll have and be five years from
now. However, it's important to act
in the present. Don't wait for your ac-
complishments to accumulate to feel
confident. Be excited right now about
who you are and what you've done,
and you'll attract more on a bigger
scale.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
It's nice to be needed, and the people
around you require something that
only you can provide. You don't have
the luxury of waiting around until
you become inspired to give. You give
when you don't feel like it. You give
even when you think you don't have
anything left. What's needed magi-
cally appears.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
There are times when you feel that
no one notices all that you do. The
saving grace is that you're really not
working to get attention. It genuinely
feels good to be of service, to use your
talents and to belong to something
bigger. Then suddenly, Friday, you'll
hear some heartfelt praise and, well,
that's nice, too!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.' 18).
The trick of good timing is threefold:
First, do everything in your power to
honor your timely commitments. Sec-
ond, leave yourself a margin of error.
Third, and most important of all, be-
lieve with your whole heart and soul
that no matter what happens you are
always in the perfect place at the per-
fect time.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Con-
sider that maybe nothing is re-
ally difficult in life, just unfamiliar.
When you know how to do it better,
it's easy. This week you will be step-
ping into the unfamiliar and getting
to know it, one lesson at a time. Put
in the work. The real skill is practic-
ing. When you understand how to
practice, the world is your oyster.


ARIES (March 21-April 19). You're
in an ambitious mode these days, and
you'll probably find yourself working
at a level you're not really ready for,
but that's all right. Say very little,
*and save up your questions so you
can research them on your own. Act
like you know what you're doing, and
you'll soon catch up to the others.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20).. Con-
versatidn is a difficult art to master
since you never know what the other
person is going to say. But you've
more than a little talent for break-
ing the ice with those hard-to-reach
types. Sure, you're stymied at first
by the communication obstacles, but
you won't be defeated. Your charm
melts them eventually.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Some-
times you think it would be nice to
be able to put all of your energy, at-
tention and passion into one interest.
But you're interested in many things.
What seems fascinating one moment
loses its sheen if overworked. So
you'll spread your attention around
to see what has the potential to cap-
tivate you more fully.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You've
struck an arrangement. There will
be moments when you think you're
getting the better end of things and
times you know you're getting the
worst. The important part is that
you are both getting what you need
for right now. Trust that all will even
out, and this will go on for as long as
it's working.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You're sur-
rounded by those who don't know
the road, and your guidance will be
crucial in their journey. It seems like
only yesterday that you didn't know
what you were doing either, and now
you're an expert. However, you are
also modest. Like a shepherd, you
lead the flock -- but you walk behind
them.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You're


OVR 0 LCAINS1


full throttle through the early week,
and then Thursday you're forced to
slam on the breaks to avoid a road-
block. You can and will overcome
this obstacle. After all, you invented
it. And though you may not remem-
ber quite how you built it, take a
few swings at it and all will start to
crumble.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oqt. 23). You're
slightly self-conscious early in the
week, though there's little you can
do to change the opinions of others.
If you try to be charming, the other
person senses it and the effect is lost.
Remember, your charm is a natural
gift and you needn't do a thing except
let it shine. Enjoy yourself and others
will, too.
This Week's Birthdays: You are
shown respect. Those around you
make it known that you are val-
ued and matter. November offers
the chance to perform in some way,
and you win out over stiff competi-
tion, too. Family ties are reinforced
through December and new addi-
tions bring excitement. There are
career choices to make in February,
and it all boils down to finances. The
most lucrative answer is also the one
that makes you feel creative and em-
powered. Romance has you dancing
through summer.

award on behalf of the city.
Gulfport received the award because
the fire department stationed
several AED (Automated External
Defibrillator) machines throughout the
city as well as provided free training for
city employees. AEDs send an electrical
impulse to the victim's heart and help
return heart rhythms to survivable
levels.

Design Public Art
for Tennis Center
Artists are invited to submit
applications for exterior public
art for the St. Petersburg Tennis
Center at Bartlett Park. The center
is both a historic landmark in the
sports history of St. Petersburg and
a vibrant, active sports facility that
serves children and adults.
A new clubhouse with a wrap-
around covered porch/viewing area
will be built on the site of the original
WPA-era clubhouse. The motto of the
tennis center is Proud of Our Past
Dedicated to Our Future.
The Project Committee seeks art
that will relate to the tennis mission
of the facility, and is appealing to
young people. Art may also help to
interpret the history of the tennis
center, particularly its "Walk of
Champions" on the wrap-around
porch which will display the names
of over 50 tennis players who
have played matches at the center
throughout its history. Art must
withstand the Florida humidity, salt
air, hurricane force winds, strong UV
and unsupervised, frequent contact
with children.

Brobeil
front front page
Driscoll's comments sounded vaguely
like those he made a week ago at a
similar meeting called to discuss the
Clerk's separation from the city. By
signing this agreement the city has
now removed two of its three charter
officers. The only remaining charter
officer, Tim Driscoll, works for the city
on a part time basis only.
Also in a scenario familiar to
Gulfportians, John Freiberger once
again insisted that the Yakes violated
the city charter and called it an illegal
meeting. He told council "I will hold
you each responsible" for it and said
that the meeting should not continue.
Although no councilmember
addressed Freiberger's comments
directly, Driscoll reassured Freiberger
and council that "this is certainly a
legal meeting" and told them they
could proceed. Michele King asked for
clarification and Driscoll said the city
had properly noticed the meeting.
"He has done Gulfport very well.
When he came in our civic groups
were having a lot of problems. He
brought new life to just about every
civic organization by helping out and
getting city involved with them."
Councilman Bob Worthington said,
adding that "it's been a pleasure for me
to be associated with Mr. Brobeil."
"We wish him the best," Lori Roach,
said Monday morning. We just want
him to get well. He's a good guy and
we're going to miss him. He's fair. He
listens, and he had that open door.
policy which I think is very important.
He always cared what the staff
thought." Roach worked as Brobeil's
assistant for his entire tenure at the
city.
Leisure Services Director Jim
O'Reilly will serve as interim city
manager, although he maintains that
his interest lies with serving the city
rather than positioning himself as the
permanent city manager.
"I look forward to going back to
Leisure Services but as long as the
city would like me to sit here, I'm OK
with it and happy to serve." O'Reilly
reiterated that he would "not compete
for the role of city manager. I don't
look forward to being a candidate
to be the permanent city manager,"
although he said he would willingly
stay on as interim city manager until
the city found the best candidate.
The city will meet this morning
(Thursday, November 6) at 10:30
Gabber November 6 November 12, 2008


to discuss what it plans to do about
a new Clerk and City Manager.

Florida Day Tours: A No Hassle Way to Enjoy the Sights of the Sunshine State
By Greg Stemm _


Florida is a big state with a rich
history and lots to do and see.
But the high cost of gas and
the hassles of driving can often take
the pleasure out of statewide sight-
seeing. Instead, why not relax and
enjoy a luxury air conditioned motor
coach, let someone else do the driv-
ing and be entertained by a colorful
and funny local celebrity?
"The best part about what we offer
is that we can customize trips to ac-
commodate whatever a group might
want," said Robert Wilson, owner of
Florida Day Tours.
Wilson noted that Florida Day
Tours also provides complete planned
tours which can be found on the web-
site or by calling the office. After
consulting with local travel author
Bill Murphy on his favorite Florida
locations, Wilson then visited many
of Bill's favorite destinations him-
self to iron out the details to assure
a fun and relaxing day. Most tours
will last between 6 and 10 hours and
lunch is usually included at a great
local restaurant. Most day tour pric-
es range from $38 to $94 and there
are several overnight trips to Savan-
nah, St. Augustine and Key West in
the works.
"When you consider the cost of gas
alone our trip prices are a bargain,"
said Wilson. "Then there's the ca-
maraderie and fun of traveling with
a group and your host Bill Murphy
always provides a fun and informa-
tive narrative about each of the des-
tinations."
Wilson was referring to TV celeb-
rity and travel author Bill Murphy
who hosts each of the trips. Mur-
phy started in television in 1976 and
became a familiar local face while
hosting "Murphy in the Morning" on
WTSP TV for seven years. He then
moved on the WTVT and anchored
Fox 13 news as well as hosting Fox
13's "One Tank Trips" travel show.
He has authored three best selling
travel books "One Tank Trips."
"I think it's wonderful to have the
opportunity to get to talk face to face
to the people who take our tours,"
said Murphy. "TV is a great medium,
but you don't get a chance to laugh
and chat with those watching you.
This environment is super because I
can share my travel experiences and

Gabber November 6 November 12, 2008


get immediate feed-
back and questions.
I love to joke around
with the group too.
We always have a .-.,:
lot of fun." ..'
Murphy said that
there are games
and prize giveaways
on board. He often '-.
gives away signed -
copies of his books.
Most groups range
in size from 40 to
50, although larger
groups can be ac-
commodated. Mur-
phy said that groups
can be picked up at
any convenient lo-
cation and Florida
Day Tours handles
all the details from
guided tours at
most destinations
to the gratuity for
the driver. -.
Wilson mentioned N
that though Florida ,_
Day tours travels to e-ft
many of Florida's
well loved destina-
tions it prides itself
on some of the more
unusual destina-
tions in Florida. We have upcoming
tours to Homosassa Springs Wildlife
Park, Rogers Christmas Village, Bok
Gardens, Edison and Ford Winter
Estate and for the adventurous you
can "Swim with. the Manatees."
Florida Day Tours is also hosting a
cruise with Bill Murphy on the brand
new "Carnival Dream." Carnival has
announced that the new Carnival
Dream, now under construction, is
the largest "Fun Ship" ever built.
The Dream is a wonderland at sea.
Among many amazing features, she
will boast more outdoor deck space,
more stateroom categories and the
largest spa Carnival has ever built.
Come relax in the "scenic whirlpools"
that extend over the ship's side. It's
amazing! The Dream offers the most
elaborate children's facility at sea,
including an expansive play area and
a huge Carnival Waterworks aqua
play area.
Join Bill and be one of the first pas-
Paid Advertisement-


sengers to sail aboard the "Dream" on

space for this cruise with only a $100
deposit. For reservations call Cruise

by November 30, 2008) Priced from
$775 to $1120 per person.
A representative from Florida Day
Tours would be glad to speak at group
and community meetings to discuss
their tours and the many great ad-
ventures they have planned.
Whether by land or by sea Flor-
ida Day Tours invites you and your
friends to experience all the exciting
things that our state has to offer!

SJgingo ifestylcs
By Joe Volz


Aunt Jean's Final Days
Aunt Jean, 92, was an independent
single woman who had lived by her-
self all these years, far from her rela-
tives, in a small Tucson, Ariz., garden
apartment with a view of the majestic
Santa Catalina Mountains. She re-
sisted every entreaty to move closer to
family members or to enter into any
kind of retirement facility.
Aunt Jean's fierce independence had
been both a strength and a weakness.
She was able to add meaning to her
life by not depending on others. On
the other hand, she had not allowed
help when she needed it. Because she
was of sound mind, no one could, or
would, tell her what to do.
My wife, Kate, served as her power of
attorney; we tried our best to be long
distance caregivers. In this mobile
21st century, many of us live miles
from our older relatives.
Here is a case study of one family's
experience:


In Tucson, neighbors, friends from
the Catholic Church, visiting nurses
and .home health care 'workers did
their best to help Jean stay in her
apartment. But Jean refused to see
doctors and definitely did not want to
go to a hospital. She feared she would
die if she ever left her apartment.
But two weeks ago, Jean's resistance
evaporated. Back in Frederick, Md.,
Kate and I received the call we had
long awaited: Jean was very sick. She
was rushed to the emergency room at
St. Joseph's Hospital. The diagnosis:
terminal cancer.
Fortunately, there was an adult
care placement service in Tucson -- as
there is in virtually every city -- that
would help us find the right place for
Jean. We took her to a new assisted
living facility, the Villas at La Cana-
da, in the foothills of Jean's beloved
mountains. Hospice workers came
regularly to comfort her.
And she was allowed to bring her
two cats, Mistie and Sandy. Jean nev-

er married and those cats had been
like her children. Fortunately, many
forward-thinking places, such as the
Villas, have realized that animals
play an important role in comforting
severely sick patients.
Jean knew the end was near. She had
all the facts about where she stood.
What was in her future? At the hos-
pital, she had asked for the news, no
matter how bad. We told her that she
had cancer and, sadly, there was no
.cure. The disease had spread through-
out her body, but we were going to
take her to a place that would care for
her.
Jean received the news quietly -- she
said little. As long as the cats were
coming with her to the Villas, that
was important. And someone should
take care of her car; there was a spe-
cial garage she used.
Jean had a pleasant room where she
could look out at the mountains. A
home for 10 residents, the new build-
ing was presided over by a tall woman
named Rebecca Redhouse, who looks a
lot like Ava Gardner. All of the work-
ers acted as if Aunt Jean was part of
the family.
Each afternoon, Jean had her own
little "happy hour," where she was
allowed a scotch and water. Doctor's
orders. Why not?
Her room was full of pictures of the
important family members of her
past. She had outlived just about all
of them.
How long did she have?
The hospice worker said, "It
could be two weeks or two years. The
only one who can say is not at the ta-
ble."
The answer came quickly. Jean died
peacefully on Oct. 23, three days after
she arrived at the Villas. Her family
and her beloved cats were nearby.
