Having a tribute to my brother-in-law

I called my sister the other night to see how she's holding up.  We were on the phone for about 3 hours.  Good thing we have free minutes between us.  She told me that they are having a tribute for her late husband on June 27 in Bakersfield.  He was very well known musicain there.  He had given me copies of all the CD's that he had made, even gave me a rough cut CD and autographed it.(never gonna let that go).  He also gave my son some of his Cd's. My sister will be going there for that, unfortunatley I can't take off from work right now as we are now entering our busy season( I swear working 6 days a week is gonna kill me one day).  According to my sister they are going to play some of his CD's at the tribute, she also said that he had wanted to do a greatest hits CD which she said she will still do for him.  Probably include the song he wrote and sang for their wedding, which was a very casual affair as it was on the beach and most of us were wearing jeans. :) 

Mom talked to her last night and the plans have changed as to when she's gonna be up this way to spread his ashes, looks like it's going to be October now.  I was glad that I could get he to laugh, somehow I've always managed to get her to do that, we always get onto these totally obsucre subjects, she was trying to remember what Scott(her husband) had named a spider in his bathroom, which is funny in an ironic way as she has always beem terrified of spiders, always came running to me or dad when she saw one and we would have to kill it for her, anyway she finally remembered the name of said spider, It's Grover and she don't know where he is now, not that she's happy about that one at least before it stayed in the bathroom.  She's got her cats to keep her company at night which is good and she's back to work so that helps keep her occupied during the days.  She was suppose to get Scott's ashes back Monday, don't know what's taken so long to cremate thet poor man, he died Memorial Day weekend. 

My Mom has started a second round of radiation treatments, she had been refussing to do so for quite a while, the cancer center kept calling her and telling her that she need to do it.  Dad, my sister and I were all telling her to get in there and do it that theier is a reason the doctors are telling you to do this procedure.  Her excuse was the bills, insurance will cover most of that we told her but then she says the cancer center is a reallly sad place, can't argue that but she still needs to have it done.  This procedure is once a week for 3 weeks, she just had the first treatment yesterday.  She seemed fine today we I saw her after work. She was in good spirits.

Thank you for your interest in our community, fan_ku.
I really appreciate it, but wanted to let you know
that, as of right now, it's actually a closed
community for myself (madame_meretrix) and
apreludetoanend. We use it to work on story ideas, and
have no intention of posting anything there for folks
to read.

If and when we do complete a story, we will post it
unlocked in one of our journals, or somewhere where it
will be available to all.

Sorry about the mix-up, but we're honored that you
were interested in it.

And, I couldn't help but read this post. I'm deeply sorry for your loss. I hope things go well for your mother. Illness can be very trying, for the one who's sick and for the family as well.

Just thought I'd pop in and thank you for adding me to your Friends list. Sure looks like life has been throwing its worst at you lately doesn't it? I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your cousins and brother-in-law as well as the health problems your mom is having. Hope things start to look up for you all soon. If you ever need someone to just listen, I'm here. :)

In the meantime, if you should need a pick me upper or even just a quick laugh... just let me know okay? I've a couple of funny SN fics (one in which Dean is turned into a frog which has caused several incidents involving drinks being spat onto computer screens due to laughter in at least three different countries I've heard of to date ROTFLMAO) If you would like to take a peek at them just drop me a line. I've been looking for a reason to post them on LJ.

Take care!

Thank you
Thank you for your kind words. My mom is doing much better. The doctor says she's cancer free, the doc still wants to see her every few months to make sure everything is okay.

I would love to read your stories, I'm always up for a laugh, Dean as a frog would be great.
