Well...here I am...
...thinking about my mama.
It's a very sad day for her. On 1/4/2007, her husband unexpectedly passed away. They had only been married for a little over 20 years - it seems they had finally married the person they were meant to be with, so those 20 years were really good years for both of them.
He was a man of mannerisms. He always sat in the same chair, always maintained good posture, and always held his cigarette in his right hand with his thumb on his jawline. I can still see the face he'd make when mama would do or say something funny/crazy - and she can say some crazy shit. He'd screw up his face and say, "Now Bobbie!" Mama - you know you do!! I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree though. I'll take it - it's a good kind of crazy.
Mama's done a good job of moving forward, but she still misses him terribly. She doesn't talk about him all the time, but all us younguns know she misses and thinks about him a lot.
So if you're reading this, send a good thought my mama's way.
Love you mama!
