School Story

Junior talent show at the auditorium, when I got up to play the accordion, Richard Long made the curtain go up and down a few times. This not only made not only the audience laugh, but it relaxed me.

I have many fond memories of Diane.  We first met at Blue Diamond Elementary in the third grade! She helped me learn to read. We attended the baptist vacation Bible school together as well as the blue diablos square dance club. During Junior High School I moved back to paradise valley, but her family continued to occasionally pick me up and take me with them to the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church. We never had classes together in either junior high or high school, but we remained friends. During one sleepover at her house, when I was about 14, she and I camped out and she saw a very tiny Jesus in the leaves of the tree above our heads, she pointed it out to to me and went to get her camera. She took a picture and it turned out, I had that picture for many years. 

Once we were grown, Diane visited me, while I was in Charleston, SC, and observed that I wasn't talking to my 4 month old baby...she asked me why I didn't talk to the baby and I said, "she doesn't understand me" to which Diane responded, "you need to talk to her so that she learns language!" ?? 

After she married, when I would call her, if her husband picked up the phone he would become irritated that someone was calling his wife. She let me know that he was jealous of anyone calling her. Her situation became so dire that she made the decision to leave him.  The day that she was leaving him, he came home unexpectedly and caught her packing, he was intoxicated and flew into such a rage that he shot her and then himself. She was survived by her parents and her brother Dean. I flew in from Vallejo, CA to attend the funeral.

She loved children and family and had a great desire to someday have her own. Before she married she did have the opportunity to help one of her girlfriends raise her daughter.

She was a good friend whose life was cut short. She is and always will be dearly missed.

To all who have contacted me, it has been good to hear from you and read your comments. I have been battling stage 4 breast cancer which has metastasized to my liver and bones. I recently got over a severe case of the shingles/chickenpox. I am feeling much better now, but am not online very often, as I am dependent on my daughter for internet access.

I had stage 3 breast cancer in 2010, and was diagnosed with stage 4 in September 2015. It is a miracle to me that I am still here! ?? This trial has made me greatly appreciate each day the Lord gives me. Besides the scriptures, Marlene Sullivan's books "Gaze into Heaven" and "The Magnificent World of Spirits" have given me great comfort! Additionally, this experience has taught me how powerful prayer is.

I'll share this parting thought by Eleanor Roosevelt "The past is history, the future a mystery, the present a gift." (from God)
