How does life keep going?!?!

I woke up this morning thinking of Colin.  Our Colin.  Our funny, dear, sweet, gentleman, ladies man, wacky, lovable Colin.  I think yesterday post and todays post on Bless Our Hearts, says everything that is in my heart about our Colin.  Go to: to read about our dear Colin and see some photos of our Colin.  

Is it time to let Colin rest and quit going on an don about him?  I don't know if I will ever be able to stop talking about our Colin.  Wednesday is his memorial service, maybe that will help.  Something has to help my heart from leaking tears.

I managed to get Larry's suitcase with little difficulties from the US Airways people.  I got work done, I got home and found that Larry had swept the front porch and vacuumed and then carpet cleaned the living room carpet.  No, really, he did.  I was amazed, thrilled.  I was very humble and nice to him, and thanked him for all his work.  I do appreciate it.  And I am happy to have him here when he is being helpful and pleasant.  No drugs, well, except for the prescribed meds.  No alcohol.  You know I can actually remember why I married him 25 years ago.

So, a short post because Ms Moon has said what is in my heart.  


  1. I just wrote Pat in an e-mail that I wondered if we would ever stop crying and isn't it the truth that the more joy a person brings us in life, the more sorrow his death brings us?
    I am so worried about his sweet French lady.

  2. I am sorry that you lost a dear friend. It will happen more and more to each of us. I can be grateful for those that have died. I remember them. That is how they stay with me.

  3. My Dear sister, I am so sorry to hear about Colin. You are such a strong lady with ALL you deal with. I'm glad it was a good visit with Larry. I keep sending you positive energy, full of Love, Peace, and Health. You are always in my heart and prayers.
    Love, Love, Sioux
