Memorable car of the day:
THAT 1948 Chevy Convertible
When I was 6 years old, I was in the room when grandma Darnell died. She had 9 men and 3 women around her bed, her children. None could stop that death.
I was there when my brothers and sisters died. I was there when mama died and then my BIL Jim died.
Sherry’s mama died in my arms, as I tried desperately to keep her alive with CPR.
I was actually there when some took the last breath. That is such a sad helpless feeling.
Just last night my screen saver brought to mind many friends who are GONE.
My best friend lost his sweet wife. He was the husband of Sherry’s sister Colette. Colette was a beautiful Christian lady. I remember the exact spot on the road while I was driving when Sonny said to me, “I know you think I am a terrible Christian, and I know you and everyone tells me she is in a better place, I believe it, but I don’t care, “I want her back!!”Colette, Sonny and Sherry in Yosemite, he and I loved our girls who were sisters. They were the best of traveling companions.
We talked and I told him that me, nor especially God, would hold that against him. We are human. We talked a lot, because we were the BEST of friends. Today, many years after his death, his name comes up at least once a day.
NO! I am not mad, upset nor frustrated, I am real. I miss Sonny, not as much as he missed his wife I am sure, BUT I miss him every day.
Today I am thinking of those who have gone over, those who have seen heaven and our Lord before me. I am not a bit envious of that……. And to tell the truth, many of them I would love to see back here with me, probably some kind of jealous love. ;-)
BUT THERE ARE/WERE FUN THINGS…… And yes, I remember them… I could kiss my girl for miles as she lay on the front seat across my lap facing me as I drove that straight drive ’48 Chevy. Traffic was much lighter then. LOL
She was one of them ’Good girls’ but once I did get her bra undone (with one hand!), but never got a handle on things. All she said was ‘hook it back’. Then she kissed me again.
Once after we were married and curb service was still popular. We ordered and ate. Then she would not leave me alone, we loved to smooch. The curb hop came out, apologized and said, the boss said knock it off. WE really laughed and laughed, after all we were married. She has always been a hot mama!
So yep, I think of the fun things too.
