Death and a Birthday
Monday I put on a cute dress, fixed my
hair and applied my makeup...
I actually sort of miss doing that daily.
But I did it this day because I was
headed to the funeral home.
A school mate past with cancer.
Terry Pilote, he was my oldest brothers
age, 60. I met all the Pilote boys
during our years at
DuPont High but I more
or less went to the funeral
home for Terry's sister in law,
Tonya. Tonya and I went to
school together from 2nd till
we graduated. I was also there
for Terry's dad, Flo.
I met Flo about 4 or 5
years ago when I was dating
Chris. Chris has a side job repairing
small motors like golf carts, go carts,
saws, weedeaters but mostly mowers.
Flo had a four wheeler that needed
repairing. He would show up most
days just to hang around at the
garage. Such a sweet older man.
Flo came to Nashville many years ago
from Canada where he played
hockey. He was one for the first
hockey players for the first team that
Nashville had, the Nashville Flyers.
His son's, Cary, Mark and Terry
were also big into hockey also.
Flo lost his brother just two days
before he lost his son Terry.
I feel for him and his family
That night I was just chilling on
the couch when Lily decided
she wanted to love on me.
Then she passed out!
Now on a lot better note....
today my youngest grandson is
7 years old today.
Braden in the
I took this shot of him.
Kids just love to get in whatever
they are playing with.
Such and adorable baby.
And always messy!
This is him last yr on field day.
I went to his event with him.
And here is his nana at about the same
age! Yep...the toothless grinning one
in the middle.
The taller girl is my cousin Kathy and
the smaller one is Tammy. She is the one
I was hanging out with at the
They live in Georgia.
