Re: LATER THAN YOU THINK

Unclemick,

A devastating loss . . . my sincere condolences. Your advice to not wait too long to ER strikes a responsive chord. Your loss reminds me once again how unpredictable and precious life is. Take care.

Robert

Re: LATER THAN YOU THINK

UncleMick,

I am really sorry to hear about the loss of your "signficant other".*
I pray your past fond memories, with family and friends, help fill your sudden void.

We are not human beings having a spiritual experience, rather spiritual beings having a human experience.

Our sincere condolences.

She remains with you in spirit.

Re: LATER THAN YOU THINK

Thanks everyone.

Now let's rock up and get positive. Gina promises to have her second favorite watering hole up and running by next year. The 'island church' and 'Big Betty's' place are gone with Katrina.

Eleven of twelve people we've found so far are living in trailers(FEMA) or have them promised - four are out of state Texas, Alabama, Tennessee and Baton Rouge.

The big project is to find a decent picture to go with the urn.

And you don't need to be Irish to attend the party - she wasn't picky. No date yet - but at least six month's - to give people some time to get their lives in order - so she can have a hecka of a wake.

So thanks again - get cracking on 'your' ER - we had a good eleven years - wish it were more - but plan to soldier on.

On to more pleasant topics.
