Sad news....

My friend who I have know for 50 plus years, died yesterday.
I was at her bedside, along with her husband, my husband,
and her brothers. It was a very sad time for everyone involved.
But I hate to say it but it was best for her, she was suffering,
she had stage 4 lung cancer, her kidney had shut down,
and had just had her 4th heart attack, plus she has scleroderma.
She couldn't talk anymore, use her hands, or move her
legs, all that happened in a matter of a few days.  I know
she has gone to a better place.  Today her husband asked me
to do the eulogy for the funeral.  So I have been thinking
of all our years together as friends, and her life.  She
took what  life handed her which was basically  bowl of lemons, and she made
lemonade, she never complained ever.  I want my life
to be like that.....wouldn't you like someone to remember
you as a person who lived her life to the fullest
even if you  bowl was half empty.



  1. such sad news, she sounds like she made the most of life, and now resting in peace.

  2. Lee, I'm so very sorry for your loss. And I'm sorry I didn't get here sooner. Your friend must have been a special person and later when you can think of her again as she was before her illness, you will have lots of memories to keep you going. My thoughts are with you. Sending you some extra hugs tonight.

  3. This is my fourth attempt at a comment!! I am so sorry for your loss Lee! She sounds like she was a phenomenal woman. I hope you can find some solace knowing she's at peace!

    Big hugs Giggles
