In loving memory of my dear friend, Larry Preston, who passed in 1990.

He was such a beautiful person inside and out. He always made me feel so beautiful and smart. :) He and I had so many laughs together and he was always there if I was down to bring me back up....He was a rare jewel.

I'll tell ya how rare he was. My first husband and I didn't have a will written, but did have written that if something were to happen to my husband that Larry would be the one who would handle all our financial affairs. My first husband trusted him that much.

Well, Larry had gotten really ill, going back and forth to doc. He couldn't figure out what was wrong. They finally diagnosed him with Lupas, but by the time they thought they could get a handle on it, it was too late.

I called Larry once a week - just like clockwork. Each week he would take my call and I would tell him I wanted to come see him, and he told me he was fine, that I needed to worry about my new husband and my baby. When he got so ill that he couldn't work, he still took my calls at home and was always so happy to hear my voice. He made me feel so great all the time.

I called him on his birthday, January 13 and had sent him flowers. He could hardly talk. :( He was very sick and I begged him to let me come see him - he said that he would be fine - that all I needed to remember was that he loved me very much, and that I was beautiful. And he thanked me for remembering his birthday and he was blessed to have me in his life.

For some reason, I couldn't bring myself to call the next week. Thinking back on it, it is too weird....I just didn't call. When I called the second week, the phone at home, which I knew was right beside his bed, rang and rang. I immediately called his parent's business and hysterically asked the secretary where was Larry??? She paused and said, "Let me get Ann."

His mother came on the phone. "My dear Kay. Larry passed 2 days after he talked to you. He told us to tell you that he loved you very much. But one thing he didn't tell us and we couldn't remember for the life of us, was your new married last name. We called all over Richmond looking for you. There was no funeral. Larry didn't want that. He just wanted us to be sure to tell you along with all his friends, how much he loved you and enjoyed your friendship. And as his mother, I also want to thank you for being his friend." By this time, needless to say, I was in tears. She went on to tell me that I wouldn't have recognized him - that the Lupas had caused curvature of his joints and he made his family swear that I would not see him like that. He loved me that much - his mother said that he wanted me to remember the vibrant, loving, crazy Larry. The one who could dance until 3 in the morn - then find the afterparty. The one who would then get up and fix everyone around breakfast (which usually consisted of ordering out). He wanted me to remember him stepping in to take me to my company dance when my then boyfriend bailed out at the last minute, and us wrecking those peoples nerves with our craziness. He wanted me to remember us laughing so hard that he rammed his cadillac into a huge parking barrier, in front of these two people who almost **** themselves, and how we couldn't stop laughing long enough to care - he just backed up, corrected and went thru the right way. (little damage) He wanted me to remember his white cadillac and his red shoes. And his crystal blue eyes.

To Larry Bennett Preston - my dear friend - I know you are still with me, because I can hear you laughing at me now for crying at my terminal (They should fire you! Do they know what you are doing there??? Buck it up, chickie...) Thank you for allowing me to know you.....my life was touched so much by you.

In loving memory of my friend Lorie.
Strangely enough I am living HER dream of being in alaska, camping and site seeing. And every day something new happens that makes me want to call her and say.. HEY LORIE guess what? She was a very special soul who was always there to listen and then tell you straight up if you are just bugging out or have a ligitimate reason to complain LOL!! I miss you Lorie and probably will never stop missing you.

In loving memory of my uncle Byron Morris, who burned it at both ends, always had a smile, and had such a generous soul. It's been nine years, and I still think of you very often.

To my papaw, Garza Mora, who passed in 1993. I still bring flowers to you. I miss your wisdom and your gentle quietness. Cancer took you, slowly, before our eyes, so I know you are in a better place now.

To my grandpa, Henry Morris, who departed from his body unexpectedly the day before Father's Day in 1997. I still think of you every day and shed many tears when I visit your resting place. I miss you so much. . .words just can't express it. My heart still has a giant empty spot. . .:(

BLACKBEAR, you are a very special gal. Lorie was lucky to have you for a friend. My dream is to visit Alaska and reading this makes me want to put more money down for my cruise up there. She sounds like she was a good friend....:2:

I had a dream that your were sitting outside at our lil' picnic table. I wished SO hard, that I could accomplish your goal for me...you'll never know how much it killed me that one of your last wishes was to see me dance again before you passed away. But I still work day in and day out towards that goal...your death hasn't hit ANYONE harder than Mom...She still cries for you, I know she does, of course you know how your children are...too stubborn to admit how sad they are. But tears are still shed. So speaking on Behalf of the family, your 8 children and 30+ grandchildren, not to mention the Handfull of Great grandchildren...We Love you! We'll be having your Memorial Next weekend on your birthday, We're even gonna have a cake for your birthday. Happy Birthday Grandma! :HappyBD:

In loving memory of my son Arthur B.
It has been a year and 3 months today since my son went away. I still find myself having a hard time, but I know my first baby would want me to be happy, and I console myself with the fact that his little daughter needs me. My son, not a day goes by where I don't miss your handsome smile, crazy humor and affection you were so unashamed to give me.

In loving memory of Thurman Bear
My friend, I am missing him constantly. He always had good words to say and millions of Mnom jokes which he knew I couldn't get mad at him for. I was fortunate to be a part of his life, even if for a short time. I miss my crazy Ojib fren. :(

Jinglin Chica 08-15-2003 01:52 PM

My great-grandmother Flora, who passed on March 17, 1995 ~ It's been years since you've been passed on but it still hurts like it was yesterday. I know you're doing much better up there, smiling down from heaven.

"Cuz no - one else could give me whut u gave me
And like when everything comes to an end
I pray that i go to heaven to see you again

My friend Roanna, who passed away on December 2, 2001 ~ Ever since that tragic day you were taken from us, no words can ever express our how much we miss you girl but we live everyday thinking of you and remembering all our good times.

"In the future, can't wait to see
If you'll open up the gates for me
Reminisce some time, the night they took my friend (uh-huh)
Try to black it out, but it plays again
When it's real, feelings hard to conceal
Can't imagine all the pain I feel
Give anything to hear half your breath (half your breath)
I know you still living your life, after death"

Jordena, who passed away recently on August 11, 2003 ~

"How do I say goodbye to what we had?
The good times that made us laugh
Outweigh the bad.
I thought we'd get to see forever
But forever's gone away
It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday."

For my Great Grandmother who taught me about myself, and taught me about our verbal family tree. While all my cousins ran out to play I sat at GGranny's knee and listened!

For my Grandmother who taught me about plants and herbs how to use them, for good as well as .... we won't go there!

For my Father who taught me that sometimes you have to stand and take what you get, without defending yourself. That way it just makes the person hurting you look that much worse! But it also taught me patience, knowing that sooner or later my turn will come!

For my Mother a role model of a different kind, who taught me that kindness goes further than being mean and selfish.

For my son who I never got to know, but glad I got to hold if only for just one week.

And my friend who accepted me when I wouldn't accept myself and taught me the most important lesson of all. Life is a gift, it is one thing to give it to another, but sad to just throw away.

Lil Bird 08-15-2003 06:17 PM

My tiny daughter Heather Rose, I'm sorry I wasn't strong enough to carry you to full term.

My Mother Sara, I wish you were here with me now.
