Mrs. O

This is a difficult post for me, I have been trying to write it for days, but it is a very important post.
I have just lost a very important person, and that person is my best friends mom.

On Tuesday August 19th at 10:30pm I received a call from my very best friend of 37 years, telling me that her mother has passed away.

I knew the call was coming, but was not sure as to when. When I saw Suzanne's name on my cell phone, I knew why she was calling. I did not want to answer the phone.

Suzanne's mom has lost the battle. For the last 10 months she has been fighting non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma and on Tuesday August 19th the cancer unfortunately won.

Mrs. O was a wonderful women, strong, caring and has raised a wonderful daughter, that I am proud to call my friend. Mrs. O should be very proud of the daughter that she has raised. Suzanne is a terrific mom, wife, nurse and friend.

Suzanne and I have been through alot together and have always been there when we needed each other. That is why I had no problem in coming the 200 miles the next day after I received the call to be there for her. Well I would do just about anything for her, and she for me. I have spent 4 days with her and her family. I know she would have done the same for me in a heart beat.

Mrs. O as I said was a very strong women, and she fought hard to overcome this nasty disease but it was to much, even for her. This is where Suzanne gets her strength without a doubt.

Suzanne was lucky to have such a terrific mom, who was there to help her out when she decided to return to school to become a nurse. Mom was there for her 5 daughters when she was needed. Not only did Suzanne and her husband John appreciate and love her, but the 5 girls did as well.

When I would be in town, and would see Mrs. O, the first thing she would say to me was "Give me my hug" and of course I did.

I would like to end this with a thank you to her, for giving me my best friend, life would not be the same without Suzanne.

I will also miss my hugs.

I love you and will miss you deeply.

That is the question of the day.

How do you ladies do it.

How do you manage to post almost everyday.

I have been home from my vacation since July 24th, and this is pretty much the 1st chance I have gotten to post. I have been home maybe 2 days in a row before I am on the road again, going somewhere and doing something.

Ok, I came home on the 24th from Vegas, on the 26th I had to take my daughter Spoony to Long Island, she wanted to spend the summer there with her cousin. Got home on July 30th.

On August 1st was in the car again, for a couples weekend with friends in the Poconos, got home on August 3rd, my 23rd anniversary.

Left again on August 5th, back to Long Island, but for reason that were not good. My best friend of 37 years, her mom is not doing well, but that will be another post. Got back today which is August 6st.

Ok I am done, do not have to leave again until August 16th, to take Spoony to college in New York City. So I can now post my heart out, I think. Oh I know something will come up.

My job wants to know when I am coming back, but I am just to busy to go to work, besides I think I am already working. The only problem is there is no pay. Whats up with that?

So many times I've missed a round
I tell you now, I won't miss a thing.
Every place I go, I take a photo, Every night I'm home, I'll post to you
When I come back, I'll tell you everything

I'm leavin' on a jet plane, I don't know when I'll post again,
OK, I have to go.
