And so another journey ends.....
My parents divorced when I was 17. My dad met Nancy when I was around 20...they dated for almost 20 years. Nancy loved the camp at Henderson Bay and from the time my son was 3 months old we spent weekends there. She loved my children as if they were her own grandchildren. When she and my dad broke up we remained friends, but as time passed saw less and less of each other. She didn't live far from me and when my mom passed away, she was one of the first people I called....now this. She was 71. I have to say when I heard she had lung cancer, I wanted to call her, I wanted to go see her, but I was selfish...it just plain hurt. I lost both my own mom and grama to the dreaded lung cancer..not another woman, close to me, loosing the battle. Tomarrow I will go pay my respects to her daughters and tell them I do know how much this all hurts, yes, sadly I do. It just plain hurts, and now tonight I cry, memories both good and bad, fun and sad....goodbye grama nancy...sleep well and dance with the angels.
