she's gone

cant quite make words. i wrote her eulogy a few days ago. i will post it here after the service in a couple of days because its good words. and because i want everyone to have a piece of her in their soul.

and i will be headed up to McKinney next week.

i'm empty. and sad. but i know she is in a better place. i know that she died with southern grace. and having lived a life FULL of love and adventure.

i miss you so much, already, old girl.

Stay strong, and remember the good times.

I'm so sorry. I loved your post about her -- she sounded like a hell of a woman. You were lucky to have each other to love.

I have been sitting on this comment page for about 4 hours so far, and I can't think of a single thing to say, Christel. I start typing, and it all just comes across as either corny, or tripe. Sometimes both.

They all say essentially the same thing. I'm sorry for your saddness, Christel, but you have lost nothing. You have all the memories of her wonderful life. Cherish them like I know she cherished you.

kojo, your words are always good.

My heart goes out to you and your family.

At least she knew how much you loved her, and you know how much she loved you.

I'm truly sorry. May the pain be pushed aside by the memories of her.
