Thank You James

JPA posted this in the comment section on the post about my grandmother. It brought me to tears and I wanted to thank James for sharing the wonderful poem. James is the very lucky brother of two very sexy twin sisters. James has the honor of calling Lori and Linda sisters. Just the same, Lori and Linda have the honor of calling James brother.


Thank you very much James!!!






I thought I saw her today
Laughing with all her happiness
I thought I heard her today
But it was only the wind
I asked God if I could have her back
I don’t think He heard me
I asked God to give her life back
He asked me why
Because I love her and she didn’t deserve to die
Because I need her for the rest of my life
God held my hand and wiped a tear from my eye
as one fell from His and He said
I Need Her Too

How touching. Are you O.K.?

My harmonica player in my band buried his 4 1/2 month old grandson today. Smashed and broke him up terribly. It just does not seem fair somehow.

Peace, love and light.

Sighs deeply... That is horrible Ric and I am so very sorry, my condolences to him and his family. My grandmother lived a long life and I know she is in a better place. I have been saying my mind knows this and accepts it but my heart wants my grandmother here with me.
Thank you for thinking of me!! I have come to realize who my true friends are and who are just pretending. (for what reason? I have no idea... seems like waste of good time to me to pretend to care about someone when you really do not)

Hi there...

Thought I would share this with you...

My Son and I were blessed today with the sight of two white doves flying together. I put pictures up on my blog to share with you.

Peace, love and light to you and yours.

James: You are quite welcome and thank you for all the compassion and wonderful wishes. You and your sisters have showed me such warmth and given me strength. With each passing day I see who my true friends are in real life and online. I see the genuine people much brighter than those who pretend to care. It has been an eye opening experience to say the least. I am doing well James, the funeral is behind me and now it is time for me to celebrate this beautiful woman's life.

Thank you again!

Fred: Thank you for visiting and I am happy you liked the poem and pictures as well. I think there are a few who can not appreciate the beauty of the words. But I realize we all vary in our beliefs. But I for one will not judge anyone on what they believe, but I also will not censor myself on what I believe.
Thanks again!!
