How are you holding up, Sweetie?? I've been watching for you on the boards. I'm still in shock. I thought we had more time! I didn't have any idea it had gotten that bad, that quickly!! I knew she was in pretty bad pain in TX. I don't know if she was trying to spare us knowing or if she didn't know how bad it was herself?! But she had LOTS of plans for stories and trips and lots more life!
I got my copy of Happily, Even After on Friday and watched it and thought of our wonderful time in Sonoma and how amazing Cherie and her family were to just open her home without ever having met us before!! I CHERISH that "first time" Ros-adventure with Debbi, Teresa, Kara, James, Cherie and you too, Darlin'!!
I'm glad we got to spend as much time with her as we did! She was such a joy to be around! Such fun!!
Hope you're doing alright! Talk to you soon, Sweetie!
Well, I’m not doing so good. But that is to be expected and it sucks! I’ve been lurking on the boards. But I can’t bring myself to post about her just yet. It’s to new and hurts too fucking much. The thread for her on RF is beautiful…writers, gotta love ‘em! Hehe!
I talked to her just before she went to TX and I got the impression that she felt she could kick this just like she always did. I do know that surgery worried her. She told me many times, pfft, cancer didn’t scare her, been there done that! Hehe! But surgery did. Just the fact that you can go in and anything could go wrong. It wasn’t the basis of our conversations. If she felt like talking, I’d listen but her health issues were just a footnote in her life. She had much more interesting things to talk about….like Jason, rosfanfic, Jason, roswellians, Jason, roswell, Jason, writing, Jason, road trips, and oh, yeah, JASON!! Hehe! That girl had it bad!! Hehe!
Yep, she had every trip planned out from now to next madi gras and to finish her 4 stories she had lined up by the end of the year! That girl knew how to have fun no matter what! Nobody, but nobody could write like her! Kath, Angel and the RF crew made her author’s page a sticky and none of her stories will ever be deleted.
Sonoma was so much flippin’ fun!! Even if all I did was squeak!! LOL right after it was announced that HEA was going to show in Sonoma, I called her and told her I’m coming up, I’m staying with you and we are going, damnit! She said hell yeah and it snowballed from there! You & debbi, Teresa, Kara flying in, James saving our butts repeatedly! Dinner with the whole group that showed up. The best part… Kara’s party room! Hehe! When Cherie found out you & Debbi were coming, she called me wondering if you would want to get together or even stay with her?, do you think it would be a good idea? , do you think they would do it? Etc. Can you imagine her being worried & insecrue? Hehe! I said debbi & J, OMB!! Of course invite them! It will be great. Those girls are the coolest! Roswellians are the best, kindest, craziest, funniest, most generous, bunch of freaks on this planet or any other! LOL All I could think about was, “omb! I’m going to meet breathless!!”……. I think I scared her with my gushing fanishness! Hehe! And if you tell her that, I will kick your hiney!! Somewhere in there we actually saw a couple of films! LOL
Let’s not forget about the cali cherry poppin’ trip either! Mistress linds & family, fem, Rosvina & 285 south, 3 am giggle fits (ok, that was just me), sexcapade stories, posting, chatting, talking, killing cell phones, smiling 4 days straight & general silliness. Cherie and me (you heard correctly) brainstorming on a new fic on the drive home! Gotta love a good road trip!
Smooches & big squishy hugs
p.s. seems like I DID talk about our girl after all! Hehe!
