Lost A Good Friend
Our friend, Lisa, lost her battle with breast cancer after a 3 year battle yesterday. I'm still crying even while typing this. I'm relieved that she's no longer suffering, but am terribly grief stricken. She was only 40 and one the most genuine, caring people I've ever known. She house sat for us a number of times and the animals adored her. She gave nicknames to two of our animals, Miss Thang, and Mr. Mugs and give our Bubba his middle name, Leon.
Her mom called us and left a message on the machine on Friday and when I called back, put the phone up to Lisa's ear so she could hear me talk. She then came back on and said Lisa opened her eyes and gave a faint smile so Judy (mom) knew Lisa heard me.
I lost both my mother and mother-in-law 7 years ago 12 days apart and feel like my heart is being torn out again. I just feel like I'm losing everyone around me too early. I know it's normal to feel this way, but I still hate it.
