Ms. Fran



September 16th would be Ms. Fran's birthday. It was always fun to try and find something that I knew she would like but not buy for herself. She was more into giving and making others happy than thinking of what she wanted for herself. Everyday I look up on the shelf in the livingroom at the picture and painting I have of her. Her urn sits between them. I talk to her just about every day and sometimes several times a day. She hears my dreams, fears, thoughts and how much I miss her. I want so badly to see those blue sparkling eyes. I want so badly to hear her say: hey Peg what ya doing. I want so badly to look out the back door and see her smiling face looking back at me. I want her back but I am being selfish. I am sure Ms. Fran is celebrating her birthday in heaven in a big way. I am sure she has a beautiful garden full of flowers. I am sure the garden is full of birds and squirrels. I am sure Ms. Fran is standing in the middle of her beautiful garden with a big smile on her face and with those blue eyes sparkling. I am sure she knows how much we miss her. I am sure she is watching over us and hears every word we say to her. I am sure she wants us to put a smile on our face and a sparkle in our eye as we think of her and wish her a Happy Birthday. So Fran my best friend no tears or sad thoughts today. Just lots of memories of all the fun and crazy times we had together and we sure had plenty. Thank you for letting me be a part of your life and giving me so many memories to smile about. I love you "Scrap" and look forward to seeing you again one day.

There are just some folk that touch our lives so deeply, that they never feel gone from us.
What a blessing you had her in your life.

Big hugs to you sis. I know how much you miss Fran and I have no doubt that she's missing you as well. She was very lucky to have you as a friend and neighbour and vice versa. xoxo
