Condolences for the family of “Dorothy Faist”

Condolence from Mary Anne Woodward on May 27th, 2014 11:36 am

Dear Kathy and family:

I was saddened to learn of the death of your mother, although I know she lived a long and happy life, at least until Alzheimer’s took over. I’m sure you have many happy memories of the “good times.”

I am sorry that we have lost touch in recent years. Our lives got so busy! I divorced Gary in 1980, married my next-door neighbor in 1992, and we have had a happy 22 years together so far. You may remember that we had 5 children. Right now they live all over the country, and we are happy to have 14 grandchildren — 12 girls and only 2 boys!

My parents are both still alive. My father, who turns 93 on June 7, is a patient at a nearby nursing facility, where my mother (age 90) also resides in assisted living. My sister and I are trying to empty out the house, but 64 years of accumulated “treasures” mean a lot of work! You may know that my “baby” brother died of AIDS in San Francisco in 1993 at age 38.

I would love to hear from you, and how your life has been in the 48 years since we graduated together from good old NDC. You have our e-mail address above, and we’re also on Facebook under my husband’s name — Richard P. Woodward.

I am sorry that I could not attend your mother’s funeral — activities with my parents, etc.

Now the hard part comes for you — although you may have said good-bye to your mom (I remember her as a smiling woman who looked a lot like you!) some time ago.

With love and prayers,
Mary Anne
