Sad News Sweet Things,
Joe just called me a few minutes ago, his Mother passed away peacefully less than an hour ago.
He was in tears. I know you'd think a big strong man crying is a sign of weakness, but it's not. It's a sign that he truly cares. I feel so helpless to not be there for him. I asked him if he wanted me to fly down, but he said no, it was not necessary, although he did miss me, but he felt that really there wasn't anything I could do.
And he's right.
The good thing is that he had a chance to see her, talk to her before she passed, and those moments were very important.
Lillian came over to see how things were going and I told her what happened. She is insisting that she treat me to dinner once I finish things up.
Joe told me that all the funeral arrangements had been made in advance and how I can get in touch with him, I'm grateful he will not be alone that he is staying with family. And I am grateful that I have such good friends.
Until Later Sweet Things, Kisses
