“Good better best. Never let it rest. Until good is better and better is best!”

Kurt, Carrie and I

My last post, was on June 24th 2014. I had started the 100 Happy Days or 100 Days Happy. I believe I made it to day 2. I’m guessing some of you might have wondered what happened. Well, my last post I left you asking for prayers and thoughts for my Auntie Bea because she was in the hospital. The following evening, June 25th 2014 she passed away. She was surrounded by her family and my mom was able to go be with her and her family that evening. I will continue with my 100 Happy Days but I probably won’t start it back up until August just because I’m still trying to sort through my thoughts, emotions and memories. I know though, that Auntie Bea would encourage me to be happy for not just 100 days, but every day.

She was the kind of woman that saw the silver lining in everything. She was always there for everyone and had an amazing sense of humor. She wasn’t my mother, or a blood relative of any sort, but she still was family to me.


I still find myself fighting back the tears, and trying to remember happy memories with her, but it still hurts. Knowing I’ll never be able to see her smile, or hear her voice again. Her family had a celebration of her life a couple of weekends ago and we were lucky to be able to spend that day with all of them. It was beautiful. I can’t even begin to express how loved Bea was. So many people showed up to celebrate her life.


Something everyone agreed on that day, was just how much love and happiness she had to share with everyone. She mad such an amazing impression on everyone’s lives, and we are all very blessed to have had her in our lives. Everyone.


I’ve been writing this post for a week now, and can’t bring myself to type up everything I want to. So I’m just going to end it before I continue to ramble. One day, I hope to be able to organize my thoughts and be able to share some of my memories with Auntie Bea.
