We are Family


I write today with a bit of sadness in my heart, my uncle and aunt lost their father last week to cancer. I new Eddie only through my aunt & her husband Eli. But what I new of the man he was all character and I don't mean funny; although he was funny it were his stories that made you laugh. They weren't made to be funny but his take and descriptions on how he told them made you laugh. He had the voice of a wise man, a man who's been around the block and a man you would want to walk down a dark alley with. I'm sad because he's now gone and my uncle's heart seems a bit broken. Heartbroken: medical terms for this are none, prescriptions none, how long they last no one knows. So in helping my dear uncle and aunt, from preparing eulogies and obituaries, videos etc. it breaks my heart to know my uncles is hurt write now. Maybe hurt or broken is a strong word but for sure I know this, when you lose a parent a parent that means so much to you your heart is not quite the same. In between this hustle and bustle of preparing a Life Celebration (funeral), I took a break to write down my feelings and finally put music back on my blog and of course the songs that I ran across made me cry again.  This is what I know for sure, I have one family, one set of friends I can call morning, noon or night. We are as close as family and friends can be, I love each and every one of them to the fullest. I appreciate each and every one of them and my life wouldn't be the same without them. I recently talked with someone about a loss they couldn't get over, someone else intervened and said get over it, some people never even have what the other had before the loss. Maybe so, but as I said before losing someone close to your heart is forever changing, no time, no medicine can fix this just time.....and I believe and hope in time we are all able to remember the good times, remember them during the oddest moments when a certain song plays or the smell of jasmine from the garden blows into your kitchen window what ever the incident may be in time I pray we all accept our loved ones are with GOD watching over us. I guess we really should be jealous that some of our loved ones are with GOD, I cant wait to meet him myself.

Rest in Peace Eddie Anaya Sr., January 28, 1928 ~ April 29, 2010

Peace...JoAnn
