Always and Forever

Mr. SierraBella 1950 - 2006

My husband of 14 years passed away last Saturday.
It was unexpected.

Now that family has returned home after spending time here, I'm finally allowed to grieve. I really needed some 'alone time.'

I was with my husband as he passed, and the last words I whispered to him were "meet me back at home." Well, he hasn't 'showed up' yet.

My grandson PJ asked me if his "PapaDon" is chasing "hotties" in heaven. I hope so. After all, it is heaven, is it not?

I've been listening to an old song today that breaks me up. I need to cry now that everyone has gone home. Most of you are probably too young to know the song, but here are some of the lyrics...

All day long, wearing a mask of false bravado
Trying to keep up the smile that hides a tear
But as the sun goes down, I get that empty feeling again
How I wish to God that you were here

Baby Come Back, by Player

I'm leaving comments open, although I don't know whether I'll be dropping in much.

Oh, and remember to say "I love you" to someone every day. I did.
