The Queen Bids Goodbye to Uncle Lee

My Uncle Lee passed away this morning. It has been 2 months and 1 day since my mom died. I had called my Aunt this morning to check on her, her son’s wife, Sharon, answered the phone and I knew right then that Uncle Lee had passed away. I talked to my cousin, he let me know that him and his wife were going to have his mom stay with them for at least a few days. Knowing my Aunt I’m sure that she’ll protest, but will give in in the end. My Uncle had been ill for a long time, I think it has been about twelve years. My Aunt has taken care of him all this time. My Aunt is a very independent woman and doesn’t like asking for help. It was sad since she had such great plans for when the two of them retired. She had wanted to travel, see places that she only saw on the television, but that was not how life played out for her and her husband.

My Aunt is 85 years old and is in incredible shape, I hope that it is not too late for her to do things that will bring her joy. I hope that this spring or summer she takes that trip to Yosemite she had put off.

Well It’s Shuffle Up And Deal Time Again

It’s poker tonight at Lisa’s, this is the 3rd week that we have played on Saturday. John can’t play with us on Saturdays since he’s a regular at another game. Marissa will probably play and she’ll be glad that John won’t be playing, Marissa just hasn’t warmed up to John yet, maybe in time she will.

Once again I am telling myself that I will be more discipline in my playing, we’ll see how long that will last.

Gray, Gray Go Away

I will be getting my hair colored and cut today. You know that I have to keep up that youthful appearance.

Find joy in what you do and smile at strangers, it will make them wonder

I'm so sorry about your uncle. :(

My own uncle is battling cancer and has been told he won't live through spring. He's in his late 40's.

I will say a prayer for you, your aunt and that your uncle will find rest in Heaven.

God Bless.
