Cousin Shirley

Friday February 21, 1992

Heard from Cousin Shirley today. Sounds like she's doing very well. It's so great to have her alcoholism out in the open. She's very frank when she talks about what she's been through and what she's going through. She's very happy with the Assembly of God Church she has been attending. She doesn't feel judged there when she wears slacks and lots of makeup. I still think she needs structure to her life and mainly a 9-5 job. She really has no income from real estate.

We go to the movies to see JFK at 4 p.m. and then pick up a movie "Silence of the Lambs" to watch at home in the evening.

Mom's Cousin Shirley is pictured above on the left side. She always wore tons of makeup and I never saw her without it. Mom was always her main support person even though they lived 400 miles apart, Shirley in Citrus Heights, California and Mom in Simi Valley in So. California. I'm glad to know that during this period of Shirley's life, she was trying to get sober and reaching out to others in her community and in AA.

Looks like Mom had no side effects from her chemo yesterday.
