Since I wrote the previous pages, I have had so many health and death changes.
I will start with the death of my precious sister, Eve, in July 2012. Such a sad time
cause she was my heart. I miss her more than words can tell you. She was my go to sister.
She listened nonjudgmental. Having said that she could have blackmailed me cause there was nothing I didn't tell
her. She had such a big heart. I love you Eve and will never forget you. I pray that you are my guardian
angel and keeping me out of trouble...you might have to ask GOD for help cause I don't seem to be doing too good
with that. LOL Rest in peace and please know how much I love and miss you.
Well, I got the horse before the cart. First it was Jerry, my half brother, that died in
June of 2012 I think. I dearly loved Jerry even tho he didn't come into my life till late. Jerry was one of Dad's
4 or 5 children by his second wife so we didn't know them till late years of our adult life. Jerry and I were single
at the same time and he would come down from Atlanta and stay with me....mostly looking for a wife. LOL Shoot I wasn't
much help cus I couldn't find a husband let alone find him a wife. LOL Well, we both got remarried and still remained
buddies even tho we didn't see each other as much. Jerry would guide me with all repairs on the house and car...he was
so intelligent and knew how to fix everything. I miss him so much and still shed tears thinking of him. Rest in
peace, Jerry and always know how much I love you, Bro.
So in June of 2012 our beloved dog of 15 years, Bubba, had to be put down. Bubba brought
us so much happiness but more so for Farris than me...they dearly loved each other. He was solid white with green eyes...such
a beautiful dog.
Bubba had a twin sister solid black. Her name was Sissy and she died one month after Bubba's
death at 15 years old. Sissy was a wild child (dog). She left home for 11 days and kept us up many nights scared
of storms, fireworks, or any loud noise. Poor baby she had to put up with Bubba but when she got enough she could beat
him up and did so many times. We love and miss both so much but we still have Prissy who is 14 now...2013.
Next comes Farris' back surgery in 10/18/12. Due to the nerve damage he has permanent
damages...a dropped foot that requires him wearing a leg/foot brace.
Some where in between all these dates I had kidney stone surgery twice. Even tho our
bodies are falling apart we are still so blessed.
Now comes the hurt like no other hurt I have ever had in my life. Two weeks before Mom's
99th birthday she passed away March 27, 2013. My Mom was like my baby. I always worried about her well being
and I miss that need to be needed by her so much. She lived alone in our three room house till age 95. Mom
sacrificed so much for us kids and there was nothing we could do to repay all she did for us. She was still beautiful
and was never bed ridden. Even tho she was in a nursing home she was sitting at the nurse's station waving as we
approached the hall. At death she laid down and went to sleep with Babs, Mirt, and me at her side. Rest in
peace my sleeping beauty. I love and miss you sooooo much.
The week Mom was buried Farris' sister died. Jeanine was such a beautiful lady. She
too was in a nursing home before death. Rest in peace Jeanine.
So today is May 23, 2013 and I'm hoping there will be no need to update for many years.
Signing off for now with prayers for all my friends and family.
UPDATE: Our fur baby Prissy passed away 2014 at 15 years old. She was so dear to us. Rest in peace
