This Is For My Sister-In-Law Jeannie and My Friend Angie

My Sister- In- Law has been in my life, in our family for a little over 8 years. We may not see eye to eye on some things, or we may have had a little falling out but she is still important to me and a strong remarkable lady. Unfortunately, she has suffered two terrible losses in 2009, her brother Charlie, and her rock of life, her Mother. It is resilient what kind of unimaginable pain a human being can endure. I really do not know what to say but, her mother from the times I have been around her,  had an amazing spirit, I always enjoyed talking to her.

My Friend Angie came into my life when I lived in Jacksonville, Fl. We met through mutual friends and we have manged to stay in contact ever since. I have not seen her in over 8 years but she is always in my heart. We have both been on our individual journeys of life, but we have stayed in touch. My dear friend is going through a hard time with the decline in her Grandmother’s health, it does not look good. Her Grandmother has been the rock in her life and now she will be leaving this earth. These are uniquely different women but my message is that I love them both and I do not take the changes to their lives lightly, when people leave us forever, that is it, there is no do over, everything is said and done while they are living, so cherish the people you love now until they leave you!

To My Dads Family In Iowa, Lots Of Love, And In the New Year

My father is from Iowa and he comes from a family of 8 brothers and 1 sister. He too comes from a large family. There are a lot of cousins there that I have not seen in a long time, many that I would not recognize, sadly. Leave it to my dad to be the one not to live back where most of his entire family resides. It is amazing where life takes us all. I have some crazy, funny Uncles! I hope to see everyone again!
