  18. There was no one better at picking a bistro in Paris! As she reminded me – they were all great, but we were’nt very familiar with bistros in Paris, so who knows if they were really that great. Doesn’t matter – we had a wonderful time! Thank goodness we had such times! As hard as it is to lose her, I know she is at peace and pain-free. Her legacy is in the gracious care she extended to us.
