Another Friend Gone But Not Forgotten

Hello Compassionate's, How are you? I hope you are well.

In 2002 May 28th My best friend's Mother passed away, In 2003 a year after at 8 am when she had passed I did a moment of remembrance, then get ready for show time, 3 mins before show time 9 am, I fell though a rotten patch of wood, my one leg went down in and skip some of the details, I hurt my back, I did all 10 shows over the 4 days but I have paid the price as here it is 2019 still have a bad back and yet another death around the end of May.

2004 was my Grandfather's Brother Ellison, 2019 and it is Ward 3 Public School Board Trustee Chris Parkinson heart attack at 53.

Most of the events we were at together I took photo's of my children, or the one photo I am having a hard time finding is the one I took of him at the Woodland Park Make Over, after the Erich's Cupboard sign was painted, that photo could have been on the desktop that crashed, or a photo I took on there phone.

I have been starting blogs and getting writer's block about half way through, The Long Weekend that I was writing on my Moms birthday May 20th,  Beginnings, Middles and Ends, inspiried to the other good news bad news combo that The Impact Business Base is ending, today June 14th, my emotions and being sick feel extra raw, everything a little harder to swallow.

I know I was not the only one hoping it was a prank, like surpise I did it you are all here let's party, the food was good, the memories plenty but no it was not a prank, like we had hoped from this beloved prankster, we signed his plan wood casket, wrote memories on postcards, cried and laughed.

Another one is gone but not forgotten, another friend has angel wings, another one brought us together one more time. It is with deep understanding of how little time we can have I strongly encourage you to live life to the fullest, full of kindness, laughter, good food, good friends, a smile that will be missed a heart that shared love daily, be blessed, stay safe and peace be with you.
