“Tribute to Norma”

Description from Granny Nancy: We lost a dear friend at the Dorchester Active Living Center. She passed Sunday morning. We loved her dearly. She was 90 but age wasn't a factor in our dear friend. I chose ruby because she had the most beautiful nails - shaped beautifully - and painted in this color. She also had to drive a motorized cart and she would zoom around and we called her Speedy. I can't imagine dinner time without Norma there. I couldn't afford to eat dinner but when I was feeling well enough to walk to the dining room I'd go so that I could visit with her and our other friends. Its just not going to be the same. Rest well Norma, the pain is no more.

    Nancy, I’m very sorry about the loss of your dear friend Norma aka Speedy. Sounds like she was a woman with a bright spirit that brought light in humor and spark of interest in life to those in her company, and her absence is going to be hard to go on with. While she is gone from your physical company, I do not believe she is entirely gone from existence, nor gone from those she loved & who loved her. You will still think of her & what you would want to say to her & imagine the things she would say about this & that, too. And these conversations you imagine in your mind are real enough, they exist in spirit, and spirit may be aware of them in the way our prayers are heard in heaven. It is never the same as having your friend to see and visit, hear and talk with. My grandmother lived to 97 and struggled that she lived on to see all her old friends pass on. My heart ached for her then and aches for you, Nancy. God bless you with comfort and yet many more moments of joy, both remembered and new. Sending love.

    Thanks everyone. I have a huge debt partly from a bipolar husband. He would never allow himself to be diagnosed until a few years before his passing at age 73. Before that my lawyer said my only recourse was divorce. I couldn’t do that. I married him for better or worse. Those last few years were wonderful. He was the guy I fell in love with in high school and eventually married.

    Anyway, I was one not too worry about finances but suddenly things changed and now I’m paying a lot of fees for “insufficient funds” in my account. So I’m doing everything I can to bring down my debt. I started by selling my car and eliminating a lot of unnecessary things like buying beads like I used to. I eat in my apartment but go down to the dining room for coffee sometimes to visit with my friends. Thank you everyone for your kinds thoughts.
