One strapping healthy neighbor had five by-passes. Another long time friend and neighbor suddenly developed irrevocable heart problems and died. A lady who lived among us for years died at age 99. And then the insidious finger of fate chose our family.
Chesapeake Bay woman was hit head on driving on a winding
She looked like this leaving the hospital
She will be okay
Her flowering bushes still bloomed
The dogwood turned red
And Christmas is clearly on the way
The accident was not her fault, but guilty or not everyone suffers when this happens. We all just know that next year will be kinder, at least that is our hope.
