Nick C Posted September 6, 2009 Share Posted September 6, 2009 Mom was diagnosed 3 years ago today? Unreal. I gardened all day and then had the opportunity to speak to a room of folks about our foundation...and raised some $ for research. Tried to make the day as worthy as possible. Now just blasting out some golf tourney e-mails... I also got the NICEST note from one of my mother's friend's daughter...here it is: I saw your mom a few days before we heard she passed. I saw her on the side of the road going into a store. My first thought was to stop (I had not seen her in a while and she had not meet my son Sean and I wanted them to meet) But I thought "there is plenty of time" (not knowing she was sick again) When I heard she passed I wanted to kick myself for not stoping. Randy had taught me so much in the years i knew her, go figure she taught me another thing right before passing. Never wait till tomorrow, do it today!!! She was the strongest person I have ever and will ever meet. Some of her influences are the reason I am the woman I am today. She always told me when I was being bitchy or not being fair. She taught how to handle some of lifes little chalenges (weather I wanted to hear it or not) When my parents got divorced, Randy was always over helping us with something or another. And I like to think we were there for here when she needed someone too. (me and my mom) Sorry to vent like this, I just kind of feel like telling you these thing makes Randy hear them in some way. I have dealt with a lot of deaths in my life. But Randy, I just can't find closure. Just writing this I'm balling my eyes out. sorry.... My mom was amazing. I miss her.
