I think this has been the saddest Summer of my entire life. I don't mean to bring anyone down. I try to be a teller of funny and upbeat tales, but sometimes life gets a hold of things and drips sadness upon us. I think this Summer I have been flooded upon instead of dripped upon.
First I lost my beloved Chloe on June 20.
Then on July 26 we lost David's Dad. "Pops" as we fondly called him was 88. He was absolutely one of the kindest, most gentle hearted people, that I had ever met. He always called me Sweetie. David's kind heart and loving ways are a true reflection of his father. I held off on posting about Pops because.....
today... exactly one month after we lost Pops, I lost my Cutie. This photo was taken two weeks ago when I went to see her in VA Beach. I knew then I was giving her a kiss goodbye. She was 92. She was my "Cutie" grammy. She was one of my most treasured people. She too called me Sweetie.

Thank you Chloe, Pops and Cutie for making my soul blossom. For not only showing me love, but for giving it so freely. I love you all dearly and I miss you even more.
I'm ready for Summer to be over.....
