I'm not sure how to be invited and so I hope this megssae somehow gets to Uncle Paul Lampe and his family I grew up with and love dearly though I don't communicate regularly with. ( I got your Holiday letters & cards Marta & Paula and have been remiss , delayed in returning any news) Dear Uncle Paul, during this painful process of life and death you are currently going through, I want to share with you my gratitude for your sharing with me (through my parents and family experiences together) your love, patience, humor, building expertise, knowledge and generosity. You were a good father figure and a good boss to my brother when he worked for/with you. I have many fun memories of fun times at the cottage! You and Aunt Mimi and my parents laughing and talking, sometimes arguing but working it out and respecting eachother's boundaries, after all. Remember shaking me upside down when I was choking on that jawbreaker? All the kids were annoyed with me after you made the rule no more jaw breakers from the candystore! After college and Marty quitting after some bad advise from Dad, we didn't see or talk to each other much, but you will always have a place in my heart . Although we are not blood related, you and your family will be thought of forever as related to my family. I love you. I wish for you continued life, joy, energy, warmth and love woven through out this process of end of life( that, in some way or other, we all must pass through ) and to ease your pain and

The best health care is preventing conditions from arising, not treating symptoms. You are in control of that. Take control of your own health!!
You have a good way of convincing your kids or disciplining them. I like it very much as I was reading your blog. Your message was planted in their as in the lesson inside grows as a tree. You have a heart, you really a good mother and a good disciplinarian. Health and wellness must be taught in the early age of a child so that what they learn from the beginning will be followed when they grow older. Thanks to your children's health advice. You are not only giving us health advice but teaching us the good ways to handle our kids.
This story shares the importance of parent knowledge and taking advantage of teachable moments. Even though Katherine is R.D. and has the nutrition knowledge, it is up to you as a parent to educate yourself so you can pass the information onto your child.
