Losing friends-updated

Once again one of our friend's has passed away. Her memorial will be this afternoon with all of us gathering tonight. It has been a very hard couple of years losing friends, but this one was relatively young. Actually she was more our daughter's friend than ours, but she will be missed a lot.

The cooler weather has continued all week with temps in the lower 90s. I've been planting some begonias the past couple of days that we found at a bargain. They will last until first freeze and that usually doesn't occur until the end of October to the middle of November, and frequently they will come back in the spring. Ahh...if it could be so with friends.

PS-It is nearly midnight here and this was one of the saddest days. Kathy was a quiet woman until she got riled and then Katie bar the door. There were a LOT of people at the bar where the "wake" was held. Actually having food, drink and catching up with others was healing, but we are still all a little raw and will be for a good long time. God has one of his angels back now. We were only lent her for a while.

  1. I'm so sorry to hear this Amber! I know how tough this is. 2009 has been a tough year all around with so many losses.
