Oh, death cannot silence me
For I have won the victory
Look up and there you can see
My home for eternity!!

I'm thinking, these photos are lovely.

And why hasn't she blogged since...

Then I read the comments, and something starts to click, and there's this sinking feeling.

Then I look really good at the title. Oh no.

Sweet rest, Patsy, rest in peace.

From my sister ...when I was going through a very low point in my life she sent me this e mail.....Patsy was always very hard up for money, Her husband did not work and she worked hard all of her life. My husband worked and made a good living for me. Patsy came to AZ to visit me in 1995..After just 1 day she said to me.."Helen, I always thought you had a good life. But i believe you had a worse life that I have had." She was wise in a Alot of ways... The last few days of Patsy's life I was with her and I felt like I could handle anything once again in my life. She was a good Sister and Mother. She raised 3 good boys and a good daughter with almost nothing. There are so many things in life more important than money....

Dear sister,
It is Thursday morning here..1:15 am and I am still awake thinking about you and your life.
You said on your blog tonight I would say you were stupid, now I have never said you were stupid, even when you were little and we locked you in the smoke house I knew you were not stupid because I knew as soon as daddy came home you would tell on us and we would be in trouble.
I have to confess that I have been known of late to say Helen has gone crazy again! but never have I said you were stupid and I know you well enough to know you would rather be told you are crazy than you are stupid.
Today you go to court to seek a divorce from a man you have lived with for 38 years and I hope it brings you peace if not happiness. I wish you could find something that you could enjoy besides a bunch of snot nosed grandchildren.
I really wish you could find some pleasure in life, I know it is hard for you having this cancer and knowing that you will not live to the ripe old age of 72 years but perhaps that doctor Calvacane can kept you going for a few years more.
I was thinking about back when Janet was in the hospital that time a few years back and I was frantic because I thought she was going to die, I was praying and going crazy when I sat down and thought you know in 100 years we will all be dead so why worry about this small matter. I have never worried like that again because after all in 100 years we will all be dead.
Oh I wish you could be happy again like you were a few years ago, you would call me and I would laugh for a week over something you had done or said.
I am going to give you an order.... Be happy don't worry.. life is short and we only have this moment for sure so try to find away to laugh again and enjoy life for awhile before your life is over. We only come this way once. Daddy told me on his death bed try to enjoy life because when your life is finished the enjoyment is all you have had that made life worth while. You set great store in our father so take his advise and find something that you enjoy and be happy.
If divorcing Mike is the answer then go for the throat but starting today be happy and stop this confounded worry about things which you can not change. love, Patsy
