Didn't get a moment's sleep last night, thinking about what you all are going through.
Dawn is coming,
Open your eyes...

Dearest Friends....

I am out of the shower now.  I appreciate Truman keeping y'all up to date on my personal hygiene.  What in the world would he post about if he could see behind that bathroom door?!

 ::) ;) 8)

Seriously...all dressed, boots polished, and a heavy heart.

I didn't like my 'funny anecdote' so I wrote something else last night.  It still seems to make sense to me this morning, so that part is good to go.

There just aren't words for how much I hate this though, so I'm not going to try to find any right now.

It is comforting to know that y'all are out there.  It's going to be a very long and difficult day in more ways that one, I'm afraid, and your thoughts winging our way will help tremendously.

Love to all,
Lynne

I think I speak for rest of us on the forum when I say that we all feel especially proud to know those of you who are in Georgia right now. Stay strong friends.


Here in Sweden it's a hot and sunny day. I have a butterfly in my room and right now it's sitting next to me on the bed. Looks like it's basking its red and black wings in the sunlight. What exactly is the butterfly effect? That something that is done on one side of the world, no matter how insignificant, can impact events on the other side of the world? During this past week I`ve been telling people - colleagues, friends and family members - about Rich, his struggles, his success and his death. Since there really isn´t much I can do about the situation, this has been my own very little of paying tribute to Rich.

Please remember that many people around the globe are thinking on you all today

Hi dear Brokie friends,

I am now about two and a half hours from our beloved Brokies in Georgia, at a family wedding.  It took about 18 hours longer to get to this part of the country than we thought it would when we left home.  That cut into our trip time here quite a bit

I love this part of the family, and don't get to see them very often.  My cousin's daughter is getting married, and I got to meet her partner and his family last night.  They are lovely people.  This feels like a marriage that is right and full of love.

The wedding starts at 3pm, same time as the memorial service for Rich.  I will be thinking of you all at that time.  Right now the two events are not feeling so different - families and friends coming together to affirm their love and connection.

I'm still hoping to see our beloved Brokies on Sunday afternoon, when Mr. Meno, Mini-Meno, and I get back to Atlanta.  It's not clear yet from either end if that's going to be able to happen.

I am thinking of our loved ones.

Paul, I do have your Rockmount shirt with me, in the hopes that I can return it to you in person.
