Message:  You know, Randy, I lost my mother...my Lord! Has it been 5 years?!?

I am happy for the time that was shared while she was on this Big Blue Marble. The hardest part is not being able to pick up the phone and just talk about the weather or share in accomplishments...or failures, or the Dallas Cowboys.

My mother died from a cruel disease called COPD. This is the end stages of emphysema, black lung or asbestos. I will go no further...

I am fortunate to still have my Father. He has been a role model all these years and love him dearly.

We usually have one-sided conversations since he won't wear a hearing aid. He has taught me to listen, and also I have learned that a lot of what I have to say goes unheard. Oh well, you don't necessarily have to be hard of hearing to appreciate that, my kids do the same thing...they don't listen to much of what I have to say either!

I am not trying to make light of anything but what I am saying is that it is the little things, isn't it?
