R.I.P. Eddie

Sorry Stuman. My condolences to Eddie's family: my mom died from bone cancer, and, yes, it is painful. Grateful he didn't have to suffer too long.

i am grateful for the end of this calendar year, a year in which my beau lost his 18yr old daughter to a drunk driving accident, we suffered two miscarriages, and now we have lost each other.
it has been the saddest, most painful year on record. i know that we grow and learn based on the suffering in our lives, not the joy; my growing pains are nearly unbearable.
i know my faith will see me through these times- i know that spring will come again, and that happiness is out there to be had.
we have two more days of this year to live through. 48 lousy hours. hurry up and pass me by. i need 2009...

Sometimes coincidences are wicked spooky

Spent Xmas day at my sister & bro'-in-law's house with my niece & nephew and her husband's brothers/sisters and their families. My sister had the cable tv set on one of the music channels playing Christmas music, and "Santa Baby" came on (didn't know Eartha had passed at the time). My niece asked who was the singer, and I tested my Bat-geek nephew's Batman trivia knowledge by asking who she was (she was the second Catwoman, replacing Julie Newmar for the last season of the original TV series, like johnman sez).

Get home, check my email and Yahoo informs me she has died. Spooky.

I have a sigfile! -->

We bid you goodnight.

Theres a couple people that recently passed away, nonheads but I people Ive known for a long time none the less. They were kind souls for sure.

Tracy Farrow and Maxine Uhrig. R.I.P. You'll be sorely missed by all that knew you. It will make the circle smaller and our heart of hearts will hurt for many moons to come.

P.S. I still miss Jerry too. I think about him every year in August since 1995.

thank you Mitch R.I.P.

I just saw him play last week, wasn't a strong player, but he was very happy to be playing for us and playing the amazing songs he played with Jimi.

R.I.P. Mitch Mitchell

Mitch passed away: he's the last of the original Jimi Hendrix Experience. I'll spin a little Spanish Castle Magic in his memory this evening!!
