In the last several weeks I have friends like Melissa and David lose their battle to Cancer, but hopefully they found peace. I am always reminded when my father passed, the Cancer took him over for years and his short 3 month visit from hospital to hospital... he finally met the end. We cried, we shared stories, I learned the man who was my father... was also a man, a friend. I found this too late as those 3 months was never enough time. My father's last whispered request to me, I remain strong... never show my emotions for him... keep my mother safe and never show I am not strong for her. It's been over 10 years and I honestly have respected his request, only once at the wake I made a contact with one of my cousins... where I welled up. Since then... not around people, not my mother.
I come today and I am sharing my tears... here as I type... we lost good friends, family... I am tearing in my heart as I prepare to visit our friends, sharing stories... jokes... last time we talked, saw them. Is there ever enough time, no... sadly no.
This is really a message to you, always say "good-bye", "I love you" and "you are my friend"... there are more sayings I am sure... Sorry for a sad post, really only a handful of people will see it, but it's high time you know... people are sometimes "once" in your life...
Be excellent to each other... - Bill and Ted!
May... "May" Bring you Happiness and Joy!
