No Chance To Say Goodbye

I would call on a regular basis but the phone She had in her room was terrible and no one there knew how to fix it. Because of money and health problems I could not even visit, after years of visiting 2 or 3 times a year. Always brought a trunk load of tools to fix anything that needed it. She would be up and waiting the second morning I was there to go "shopping". She always made a fuss when I picked up four lobsters, I was spoiling Her. But lobster was Her favorite thing and what was a son to do.
Was thinking about all the photos I lost in the tornado and especially the ones of Her when She was in Her 20s and 30s, She was a real babe. Much better looking then the pinups at the time and She never lost that.
She made me think on my own and not follow the herd. She insisted I dress as well as could be afforded. We never wanted for anything that I can remember and She was the best cook on the block. 
I am sitting here crying my eyes out. She was in her late 90s and passed with grace and peace in Her sleep. I am thankful for that.
So much left unsaid. Give your folks a call and tell them how much they mean to you.
Goodbye Mom, I love you.

    Sorry for your loss.  Sounds like you made her happy and proud. Remember those visits and the smiles those lobster brought.

    Cigars were made to be smoked, whiskey was made to be drank and women were made to be loved. The only thing I try to age is myself.

    Sorry to hear JD. Similar circumstances with my grandma back in June. I was going through the phone looking at all the times we talked this year and feel like 1-2 times a week just wasn't enough. Still pick up the phone to call her from time to time...have to remind myself I can't. Hold onto the good memories my friend. They help.

    I like Oliva and Quesada (including Regius) a lot.  I will smoke anything, though.
