Thanks ladies. I used to be very close to Barry's parents but had become estranged from them a number of years ago. Had I not been their DIL and just a friend they would have been ok. They were not really good with personal boundries or respecting their children/DIL as adults. My mom, bless her heart, has a healthy respect for boundries. LOL Barry said a number of years back "your mom is nice...mine is not". She could be nice, super talented in many ways but her pettiness could make one crazy.
It is odd though. 4 years ago in August on a Friday Pat collapsed on the floor and we found out he had a very large brain tumor that was not malignant. The following Monday my mom called and was bleeding - we found out it was uterine cancer on the day Pat had brain surgery on Wedesday. The day in between my daughter was involved in a hydroplaning accident on IH 10 where she bounced off BOTH sides of IH10 and was clipped by a 18 wheeler. OMG all of this in literally a weekend. Now, Pat passed away, mom is on her last journey and my daughter is in Georgia at some huge Woodstock concert. UGH I wish she was home so I would know she was safe.
Ok..y'all know more about me and my life than some of my closest friends! So I guess that means we are all Besties and need to have a huge trail ride complete with cowboy cooking, bonfires, horses everywhere and loads of fun. I'll bring cakes....
