Didn't See That Coming

A good friend of mine died in November of 2006 (I spoke of it here & here.) and her mom sent me a video today. It had different pictures of her and her children and was set to a sad song. At the end of the song, there was some audio of my friend's voice and that is when I lost my shit. It made me sad but it was nice to hear that she did sound just as I remember.

Shortly after my dad died I called my parents home and his voice was still on the answering machine. I lost it. Totally.

Mike - Yeah, it's quite a surprise.

Oh girl that would be hard hard hard to take. I still can't listen to a cassette of my beloved Gram playing the organ.

Patti - It really took me aback when I heard her but I had to listen to it more than one. I'm glad that her mom has the recording.

What a wonderful thing to have though, Chickie....And you know, a GOOD cry is always a good thing, in my book!

Lady of the Hills - It was definitely a smiling cry. I'm sure I'll do it again sometime to the video.
