Last week-end for me was over the top, yes I know I am getting older, but I am not old. Not old enough to lose friends that are the same age or close to my age…

I lost a very dear friend in a car accident…been friend 45 years…her brother called me on her phone to let me know..I answered it the same way I always do when she called, hey bitch…what it up…and her brother said, I hate to inform you this way, but my sister was killed tonight in a car accident…Seriously, we talked every night…It may have been a minute, but we talked…I am missing her dearly already..

Sunday My only day off, I visited County Market, where another dear friend was the butcher…I rang the bell as normal…and rang it again…this woman came out and said why are you ringing the bell like that?  Where is Don I asked…well my dear he is dead…that is how she put it…seriously I was stopped in my steps…what the hell…

Friday Night as we all know Whitney Houston Died…My daughter was named after her, I loved her songs, and she had a few hard times in her life…

But three, three died…three broke my heart…

Marilyn a very dear friend…Do you know what a real friend is?  It is a person that knows all about you but likes you anyways…that was her…

Don, a cat lover, a loner, a smoker, a drinker, but my dear friend..why because a true friend knows all about you but likes you anyways..and I loved him dearly…

Whitney Houston, her songs, touched my very soul, she was troubled, she had a long row to hoe…but each and every song touched me…God was her center…she was just plain and simple Whitney…and she was special in many moments in my life…

So tonight I am feeling a great loss…pain breaks my heart…And I know, that I need to go on…Death does happen…but it is getting younger and younger by the day…

My friend Marilyn, 50, Don, 55, and Whitney 48…so sad…
