Well I am actually posting on my blog today! So much has happened in the past year. My best friend Barb passed away on July 17, she was only 56. I talked to her the day before her hubby took her to the hospital, I never dreamed it would be our last conversation. She had just finished a second round of chemo and she was soooo sick. I begged her to let me come down and take care of her (she lives in Houston) and she said, Oh Diane I love you but no it's ok. She told me she'd rather die than be that sick. I guess she got her wish because 9 days later she was gone.  I am lost without her. Even with the distance between us we were so close and I really stayed closely in touch with her the last couple years.  I just can't believe she is gone. I had my flight arranged to get down there and Brad called me the night before I left and said she was gone. 

this is my Barb in 1979. We had a getaway weekend together.  She was an awesome friend and I will miss her every day for the rest of my life.  Her memorial service is next weekend. God grant you a joyful heavenly life dear friend. I await the day we see each other again.
