I missed writing to you last week.. Our dear Uncle Smitty took a very fast horrible turn for the worst that kept me by his side .. He passed away peacefully on Jan, 8 at 9:08 p.m. He is with you now .. i am sure. He did not want to leave but i kept telling him that you were waiting for him and that i would be ok .. that it was time to go on to a much better place where he could be cancer free and not suffer anymore. His nurse Alicia was such an incredible inspiration , so kind, loving , caring, and supportive . She is doing gods work here on earth.
The day after he passed i had to go to his house to get some papers .. and it was so strange not seeing him there .. i was talking to him and said .. don't forget i will be looking for my sign that you are with Buttercup taking good care of her ... I have never opened this particular cabinet in his home .. but something called me to it that day .. and inside was a beautiful bowl with a purple butterfly in the bottom... I took that as my sign !
The next day i woke up with my eye swollen and had to go to the eye doctor .. after they put the drops in my eyes and left me so they could work .. i shut my eyes.. after about 20 minutes i opened them and when i looked to the left there hung a framed photo of a purple butterfly ! Yes , i am taking the purple butterfly as my sign .
Sunday the 19 .. we will be holding a celebration of life at the golf course where Uncle Smitty and I always played.. i think he would really like that ! He left everything up to me to be done however i wanted it to ..so that is what we are doing .. a 19 hole celebration of life !
I left a message for Mollys family to see if we are going to get to keep her.. i haven't heard back yet .. but i am thinking it is looking most likely ! She is really settling in .. and her personality is really starting to show .. nothing like you sweet Buttercup .. i call her my little pip !
I want to thank everyone for all the warm hot chocolate you sent me .. please understand we do not have the time to resend .. but just know we LOVE YOU ALL ! Last night i sat and reread all the Christmas cards that had been sent .. and you know what .. we are a great group and have some of the most loving caring friends here !
Love you all .. and miss my Babygirl !,
