My first PNurse was such a caring and strong person. I was an inpatient on the adolescent ward of a private psych hospital. She quit her job in the middle of her shift b/c of the way we were being treated. As she left, she gave me her number and we stayed in touch for a few years. She became an Episcopal priest back in the '80's. I'm posting her name since she has been gone for a long time and she deserves to be remembered. She never had kids, nor was she married, as far as I know. So....

My dad had a wondrously analytical mind. Though it wasn't so great if you weren't his partner when we played spades.

For my fifth birthday, my mom made me a birthday cake with a doll in the center and the cake was the dress. She had my party at the pool. She made a lot of cool things. She was more talented than she knew. Way more talented.

My dad died last year. He was my rock and I miss him everyday. He was not one to say I love you much. But a couple of days before he died he grabbed my hands and looked into my eyes and said I love you so much stubby (his nick name for me). I spent those last weeks and months with him just about everyday in the end he insisted that I sit in this certain chair. I later learned he wanted me to sit there so he could look at me when he woke up and when he fell asleep I miss his so much

My dad was a mentally (and physically) strong man, but he wasn't ashamed if he cried during a movie.

The last time I saw my brother alive was on my 16th birthday. We were at the hospital visiting my mom and I'll never forget when he told us it was time for him to leave so I stood up and we walked through the halls of the hospital catching up on the news in eachother's lives and we stood infront of the elevator doors and something felt different. I didn't want him to leave and I saw something in his eyes I had never seen before that I don't know how to describe. It was like my gut was trying to tell us that we would never see eachother again. We never used the words bye to eachother, bye just always seemed like it was permanent so we would always say see you soon, which were the last words we ever said to eachother. I'm 25 now and I remember how his laugh and smile would light up the room. We had a really screwed up childhood and our other siblings seemed to cope with things better, but even though he was mentally and emotionally struggling with me, he would still always listen to my rants and was there for me through anything and everything. He was everything to me. It was him and me against the world with a united front. He was my hero, my best friend, the only person in the world that I would trust with my life. I miss him more than words could ever describe.

My best friend's warmth was so evident that he could get away telling people the most honest things, with his smile and his loving eyes.. things they would never have put up with someone else saying. We were all who knew him, better people for his presence.

My grandma on my dad's side and her sister lived together for years and years. They were total opposites, but so cool together.

When mmy mom was really happy, she'd get this big smile on her face and kind of bop along. Then she'd hug me and make this sound and tell me she loved me. I miss that so much.
