An update

Some of you may remember when I told you at the end of April about my sister dying, possibly from foul play. Well, the coroner report finally was released (actually about a month ago) and he ruled it accidental. Some relief I guess. Said it looks like she had a savere asthma attack, was trying to get out of the house to go to the neighbor (Denton got 11 inches of rain that day) and slipped going out the door, hit her head and broke her neck. Some of the famly is still suspicious but I guess we'll never know. My mother took her ashes, after the release, down to Miami, went out about a mile off shore and spread them in the ocean. She visited there once and that was her wish. Her youngest daughter just had her 12th grandchild. I guess we just move on. Worse thing for me is that I was not close to her. I doubt I talked to her more than 5 times in the last 10 years. No dispute, she just lived her life in a darker world and didn't care to stay in touch with anyone except out mom. So my sorry is more for my mom than me. So, I guess life goes on.

I really want to write something profound here, Chris, but I just don't have anything that I can say other than I'm so very sorry. I hope you and your family can move forward. Take care.

I've dealt with a couple situations like this Chris and believe me when I say that Closure to the whole is the biggest help in dealing with the loss on a day to day basis. I'm glad that your mom was able to carry out her last wish for her.

This is a difficult subject. I can somewhat understand how you are feeling. My big sister is still alive, thank God, but she does not speak with the rest of the family. The guy she married, he is either, a Saint, or the most demented, evil person, on the planet. Doesn't matter, she's still my sister. As long as I know that she is still okay (through random e-mails) that's fine. I have had to learn to distance myself, from things I cannot control. Life goes on. Learn from your past, and don't waste what you got. Love your family, but don't let them hurt you. Blessings for you and your family.

This was a poem that was given to me when I was in the police acad. after we lost a member of our unit. I'm very sorry for your loss.

The Dash-

I read of a man who stood to speak at the funeral of a friend
He referred to the dates on her tombstone from the beginning to the end.

He noted that first came the date of her birth and spoke of the following date with tears,
But he said what mattered most of all was the dash between those years.

For that dash represents all the time that she spent alive on earth...
And now only those who loved her know what that little line is worth.

For it matters not, how much we own; the cars .... the house... the cash.
What matters is how we live and love and how we spend our dash.

So think about this long and hard ... are there things you'd like to change?
For you never know how much time is left. (You could be at "dash mid-range")

If we could just slow down enough to consider what's true and real,
And always try to understand the way other people feel.

And be less quick to anger, and show appreciation more,
And love the people in our lives like we've never loved before.

If we treat each other with respect and more often wear a smile...
Remembering that this special dash might only last a little while.

So, when your eulogy's being read with your life's actions to rehash...
Would you be proud of the things they say about how you spend your dash??
Keepin the peace.

The difference between sport and combat is that in combat you bury the one who comes in second.

Thanks guys. I can't believe it has been over 5 months now. It really sucked that the coroner took so long but at least no one has to suffer the wrath of her family. Her in-laws had some crazy kin folk, it would not have been pretty. Life goes on. Hopefully I'll be able to make it home for Christmas, but it will be different. Cheers.
