Saying Goodbye

Last week I reported about going to the 
funeral home for a guy that graduated
from my school. I knew him many
years ago as well as his brothers, 
plus I know his sis in law and his dad.
He was 60 and gone after fighting 
cancer for a year. So sad. 

Today I will be going to visitation 
for the daughter of a friend of mine.
Shelia and I have known each other
since grade school. We live in the
same neighborhood. Her 25 year old
daughter was killed in a car accident
over the weekend. Way to young to
be taken from her family.

And tomorrow I will be attending
visitation for Martha. She is the 
sister of another friend I have known
since grade school. Plus her cousin, 
Cindy, I saw yesterday 
at Norman's retirement, she is one of 
my partners in crime.
from the TBI.
My brother and her brother were
also good friends. 
Martha had a stroke about 2
months ago and has suffered since.
I feel for this family so much.

When you graduate from such
a close knit school you try to 
be there for others in need.

This is surely a time to be 
thankful for what I have. 

Thank you for stopping in,

Just reading about these three dinner ones that have gone on from this life makes me so much appreciate what I have what I still have as I sit here listening to the Hara and Puerto Rico

It is sad to see our friends go, but we are of an age when this happens more frequently than we'd like. It's even sadder when we lose the young people ...

Life is just so hard sometimes. I've lost many friends also, and it breaks my heart.

I'll be thinking of you, Pam.

Wow. So sorry. That's a lot of people to lose in such a short time. (I notice that it's a grouping of three...)

That is such a lot of loss at one time, Pam. I'm so sorry.
