Sorrow with Thoughts and Prayers
I hope everyone had a great weekend! Today's post is a sympathy card for my mom's best friend and next door neighbor. She lost her husband a week ago today. My heart goes out to Alicia because she is a wonderful, fun loving, and caring person. When I spoke to her the first thing she said was that she cried till she had no more tears. And now that some time has passed she knows he is in a much better place with no more suffering. Ed will be missed!
We went on with our conversation and we got to a part that made both of us laugh. Alicia LOVES animals...she would take them all in and give them all the love they need. She used to have 3 dogs and 2 cats, but now she has 6 cats. I told her that she is now going to be known as the wretched old cat lady to all the kids in the neighbor hood. Please let it be known I grew up in this neighborhood, the kids talk.
Alicia, I love you, I am sad for you! But I know you are a strong woman, you will be okay. Please let me know if there is ever any thing I can do for you. You and my mom had some great times and great laughs together. I thank you for that...you were one of the best things my mom had. Thank you for being a part of our family!
