Death Doesn't Discriminate......

In one month………, 31 days,
I have lost one
to alcoholism,
and one to cancer.

Craig,
I hate to say this,
but maybe you never had a chance…….
Suffering,
’till your liver gave in
from your non stop consumption of
Busch beer.
Living in a trailer,
with your mom and step-dad,
who were also alcoholics.
You became disabled,
when you fell out of the bed of that truck, two years ago…
That,
was the true end for you……..
BUT,
you had a heart of gold.
So sad to see you suffer……,
but, so happy the suffering is gone.

Lori,
A mother, and my friend…….
a wonderful Photographer.
You always worked with film……
non – digital……
true artist’s eye.
You battled breast cancer,
and survived……
then, 5 years later,
it came back……………..
this time, in your lungs.
You lived your life organically…..
always mindful of what was
best for your body.
BUT,
damn, it came back with a vengeance……
and, your strength and love,
never waivered……..
when your daughter asked you,
“Mommy, are you going to die?”
you said,
“No”.
And, Lori,
you were right.
You will never die……
in our hearts,
you will forever live………

So, two family members
died, in this 30 days………..
BUT,
will never be forgotten. xxxxxxxxxxx
