BD month...

So far, not so good. A co-worker died Wednesday morning. Not just a co-worker, but a really neat, funny, feisty person. Like, her picture should be right next to any definition of the word, always. I went to the funeral. It was rough. There was a table set up with pictures, and there was one of her sitting on the back of a pony, dressed up like a little cowboy, chaps and hat and all. It was the perfect 1950s picture, a slice of life as it used to be. She looked so happy, with her little girl face. It was amazing how much that face never changed, and in every single picture, old or new, she had the same light in her eyes--a light that promised she was up to no good.

So, I post this here for me, to remind me that I haven't got all day to let folks know how much I love them.

It was a shock, but we're getting through it. Everyone at work, we all loved her to bits.

Aw, how sad. I love those old photos -- I have one of Gerry and his twin sister sitting on a pony together. It's a bittersweet feeling to look at it (she's gone now too). <3

I know! It's heartbreaking, looking at those baby pictures...life is a rough road.

Thanks so much. She really was one heck of a great person--lots of laughs, and sweet when she wanted to be. :)

Thank you, she was! She was the kind of person who pretended like she was really mean, but had a heat like a marshmallow. :)

Hugs, I'm sorry for your loss. Sometimes looking at pictures like that can be so bittersweet but they're great reminders of the kind of person they were.

Thank you so much. Yes, pictures really are great reminders--that smile, that roll of the eyes or the big laugh is preserved always. It's nice to share pics with the kids and try to explain a history and a backstory...♥

Oh Miss Roxy, I am so sorry for your loss.The one thing about getting old that I hate is losing friends, but they are never gone as long as we remember them.

Thank you love, I really appreciate it. Yeah, getting old and losing friends is the worst part of it. But we all love talking about the ones we love, here or not, so in some way they never die. ♥
