Lera Laxton (Lamme)

Almost 20 years ago, we bought an old house in Taylor. We fell in love with it the moment we saw it. Allow me to list the reasons for that love: The dining room was large enough to hold my loonngg antique dining room table and 10 chairs...a china cabinet and two hutches...a bookcase for for 4 more chairs with plenty of room to move around. And it had a fireplace! With a border that was the same pattern as my formal china. That dining room was absolutely so festive during the Christmas season.

Five bedrooms, four of them huge and the fifth smaller one, I turned into a closet/dressing room/library. In fact, there are bookshelves in every room. I turned the rather large foyer into a library but since I sell used, rare and out-of-print books and paper ephemera online and at shows, I had to increase the shelf spaces into every room. Yes, even the bathroom. THE bathroom. There's only one!!!! It and all the bedrooms are upstairs. The house is even older than I am, having been built in 1920. And I'm 71. We are both becoming less functional than "yesterday".

I wanted to let everyone know that Janice Watt's family has posted on facebook that they are going to allow her to die on Wednesday. All I know is she had throat surgery on 8/22 and coded in recovery. She's been in ICU since then. They had a family meeting today with the doctors and posted this information. She was my best friend in 8-10th grades. I've only seen her a few times since graduation, but found her on facebook.

So sorry to hear about Janice. I guess we are getting to that age when we notice how many friends we have lost. Rest in peace Janice.

Cindy, thank you for updating everyone. Janice was such a nice person back when I knew her. This is sad to hear.

(Can you tell me what "coded in recovery" means?)  Thanks, Dick

"Coded in recovery:"  Janice was in the recovery room after surgery and her heart stopped.

Cindy,  thanks for the updates on Janice.  When in McCallum, she lived 3 doors away from me on Shadow Lane.  I recall she had a younger brother, he still around?

She has 2 younger brothers. Willy is the older, Tabb the younger. Tabb is the one keeping everyone up to date. Janice was taken off life support yesterday. She has no brain activity. The doctor said it could take a couple of days. I lived around the corner on Perry Lane.
