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.
