Sad Saturday

Photos still on camera and I am still tired. It is very difficult to say goodby to an old friend. Patty and I were roomates in college, the rebels that we were, stayed good friends, she was maid of honor when Bob and I got married. We had our first babies about the same time, her John and Nikki are the same age. I was with her when her first son died and during the funeral. They stayed with us for a while. Her marriage fell apart, she lived not too far from us. I don't remember where she met Clyde but when they got married, I stood up with her. She had flaming red hair and she wore a pretty green wool dress. That was 40 years ago. Funny I would remember her dress. They went on two have 2 lovely girls, Kim and Julie. Patty was with me when our daughter Coreen died. They moved to Colfax and had a happy life. Now after all these years, I had to say good by. I spoke briefley at the memorial, one of the harder things I have had to do but for her, I did it. Memories of Patty.

I hope tomorrow, the world will seem brighter. I get to work at a horse show and my now friends will be there and things will look up.

Thanks for listening to my meanderings. Just a day of crying and thinking.


  1. So sorry to hear about your friend. I have had a friend that I have known since second grade, over 30 years. Now that she is married we don't get together as often, but we are like sisters and it's like no time has passed when we see each other. I know if something ever happened to her I would be devastated. Hang in there, I'm sending warm thoughts your way!

  2. It's very hard to believe isn't it..

  3. Lea- I'm thinking of you at this sad time.

  4. Thank you is hard to say good by but she would not want me to be sad any more. I will miss her. But the sun shines and life goes on. I think in Ecclesiates it says a time to laugh and a time to mourn. Now its a time to laugh.
