The Death of Flowers

It's been a sad month for me. My grandmother died on September 11, 2008. As a matter of fact, the whole year of 2008 has been filled with death. So far this year I have been to 3 funerals. That's the same amount of funerals that I have been to in the past 20 years. My best friend's mother died a week ago today. I am, to say the very least, extremely traumatized. I have so much to say about the people I have lost. I want to see them again, talk to them, but mostly, I want to ask them questions. But I can't. And so now I wait until spring....when I no longer have to deal with the death of flowers.....Thank you and pray for me.
In honor of my Grandmother Annie Pearl McCoy...and all the others we have lost....
