One never knows...we take for granted our time on earth & we think that time will stand still for us, and that there will always be 'time'...but that is not so. Last evening my friend in Alaska weighed heavy on my mind. It had been a long time since we had spoken & even though this was the norm(normal)for she & I, with each of us living our lives....I was compelled to speak with her. So, I called my dear friend 'Vonnie' as I called her & her cell was not working, strange. Then I called her home line, and stranger still, it was not working either...I sent an email...all the time telling my self that something wasn't right. If something changed(address, phone number, job, etc., or just good ole girl talk)we let one another know..
I called my oldest son & since he knew how to pull people up on the computer, like checking face book, which I am clueless about, I asked him to see about my friend Vonnie.....and then I prayed.
My son, found my friend 'Vonnie'
My heart is so very sad, as I think of all those times I was going to call months & months ago, but didn't because so many other matters were pressing in on me in my life, but I know now that time doesn't stand still for no one.
To 'Vonnie's' family whom she loved, loved loved so much like no other & her friends all over the world, including Washington, D.C. (where we met both consulted for a Women's clinic)Maryland, Chicago & Alaska, you have my sincere condolences for the loss of Yvonne(Vonnie)
She was the most kind, generous, peaceful, spirited, beautiful, well liked, forever giving, trustworthy, caring, loved person I know!
She loved life & she loved her work! She was needed in Alaska, to do what she did, she cared & it showed.
She always had a kind word & if you needed her, to talk, listen, cry on her shoulder, she was that person. She always 'GAVE' bit's & pieces of herself, sometimes spreading herself thin....but she would have it no other way, that was 'Vonnie's' way.
I will forever miss you my friend. Your bright smile & abundance for life. You are gone away but will never be forgotten.

Rest in Peace mi amiga!
