  1. I'm sure some of you remember my dear brother TBone, who passed away in July 2004. I wanted to give you an update on our family, although it's certainly not good news, as we've suffered two losses in the last week or so. Our brother-in-law, Bobby Swint (ViVi's husband) fell a week ago, and suffered severe brain damage, resulting in his death on Friday. His obituary is at http://www.legacy.com/ledger-enquirer/O ... D=94515342 Additionally, our first cousin, Susan Hall, whom I mentioned on the message board more than a year ago, finally lost her battle with lung cancer a week earlier, on F

    two years

    It's been two years tonight since that beautiful blue moon took TBone away, ending his suffering. I don't have words to describe how I'm feeling today, but wanted to share an article someone sent to my husband earlier this month (ironically, it was published on the one-year anniversary of his father's death). I'm sure many of you can relate to the author's words. Praying for us all, TeeTaa The River of Memory by Patti Davis (daughter of Ronald Reagan) In the back of my address book, I keep a list of birthdays and anniversaries. Beside it is another column of names and dates—a much
  3. Yep, Mama knows. She called me yesterday (ViVi had called her as soon as she got my email) and told me to send Susan a message RIGHT THEN that she was thinking of her. And I did exactly what you'd have done if you'd gotten that call - I obeyed those orders!! Thanks to all of you for your support through this. Heck - I'd posted a message in the Newcomers forum, cause I felt like that's where I belonged after all this time!! Hopefully Susan will join us here soon. I can't imagine a better place to be.

  4. Hey there, Frannie. I guess it's appropriate that our first contact with each other after Susan's diagnosis is through this site. I wanted to call you today, but knew I couldn't have that conversation. July really sucks, don't you think?

    Too much pain

    There are no words . . . Just hold on, my friend. Just hold on and get through RIGHT NOW. You know that's what Keith would want for you and your baby.
  6. Thanks, Becky! Seeing that dragon slayer of yours makes me feel a lot better, and seeing that you're still doing well is even better.
  7. My heart goes out to you, Carleen. Praying for us all, TeeTaa
  8. Those of you who've been around a while might remember me, although it's been quite some time since I've been active on the board. Just found out yesterday that a first cousin has been diagnosed with lung cancer, and I've referred her to the site and hope she comes here and finds it as valuable as my siblings and I did two years ago. I honestly don't know what I would've done without my friends here to get me through TBone's death. Praying for us all, TeeTaa

  10. Here's a link to Angie's Dad's obituary: http://www.legacy.com/huntsville/Legacy ... Id=3301872 TeeTaa
  11. Angie in Alabama called and asked that I post that her father, Billy Saint, passed away this morning at 4:30, surrounded by his loving family. He'd gotten progressively worse over the last few days, and went to sleep last night after telling her goodnight and that he loves her. Another family member, who has worked with hospice and has stayed with them for the last few days, woke them up at 3:30 so they could be by his bedside as he peacefully passed on after having fallen into a deep, deep sleep. Angie is going through the many emotions familiar to so many of us, but is comforted by the fa

    It's BAD

    It breaks my heart to read your news, and I can only imagine how scary this is for you. Many good vibes and prayers are being sent your way. Praying for us all, TeeTaa

    Jim is gone

    Peace to your family. Praying for us all, TeeTaa
  14. Welcome back to you too, Joe. Congrats on the house - it's spectacular. Praying for us all, TeeTaa
  15. Okay, okay, okay. Send in the tar and feathers, cause I deserve it. Figured I'd better post in this forum, cause y'all may have forgotten who I am by now. Ry, I think I lost my hall pass, but I'll replace it - perhaps with a big set of lips for kissing up. Will that work? So sorry for the long absence . . . I was busier than a one-armed paper hanger with Holiday Extravaganza and Christmas, then the tsunami disaster hit me hard, and I headed up a school fundraiser for it, and other "just life" stuff made it hard for me to come back. And then the longer I was away, the harder it was. Bu
