Funny how that keeps happening.
I won’t be around much today. Hubby and I will be gone for the better part of the day. A dear friend of the family passed away a week ago yesterday and today is her funeral, to be followed by one hell of a party. No mourners allowed! That’s how Barb wanted it. Bright, cheerful colors and a party thrown in her honor. I can see her smiling right now and hear her cute little voice reminding us all to be happy. Sigh, she was one of the good ones who got away too early, and I’m going to miss her joi de vivre.
Her family was one of the very lucky ones to have her as a daughter, sister, wife, mom, mother-in-law, and grandmother. I was lucky to call her friend.
Every time I see her in my mind’s eye she is smiling, and so she makes me smile. I know she is no longer in pain and is now with her loved ones who went on ahead of her. So for Barb it’s all good, for those of us she left behind? We’ll find a way to go on until the times comes when we will all meet again,
So to Barbara, we love you, sweetie, rest in peace, baby, and never stop smiling!
