She Can't Be Really Gone - Remembering A Friend

This morning, our friend Donna, earned her angel wings.  Donna was married to Mom and Dad's friend, Lee. Lee was a mutual friend of Mom and Dad's in high school.  He actually introduced them. The folks were in his first wedding and he was in theirs.  They lost touch for a few years, but re-connected when he married Donna.  Donna was his soul mate.  She raised his two girls as her own. Mom never heard her say "step daughters", they were HER girls.  They were a family, a very happy family. 

Donna was hospitalized a little over three weeks ago. She was unconscious and I don't know if they knew for sure what was wrong.  There were guesses and treatments, but she did not recover.  She left this earth around 1:30 a.m. surrounded by her family.  The girls have lost their mother and best friend.  Lee has lost his soul mate.  Mom and Dad are both very sad.  Mom said her heart hurts for Lee and the girls.

Even though Donna was sick, it is hard to imagine that she is gone.  Her things are still waiting for her to come home and this song made us think of that.  We hope you can hear the song.

RIP Donna Vickers - you were loved by so many.


Can't Be Really Gone - Lyrics

Her hat is hanging by the door
The one she bought in Mexico
It blocked the wind, it stopped the rain
She'd never leave that one
So, she can't be really gone


The shoes she bought on Christmas Eve
She laughed and said they called her name
It's like they're waiting in the hall
For her to slip them on
So, she can't be really gone


I don't know when she'll come back
She must intend to come back
And I've seen the error of my ways


Don't waste the tears on me
What more proof do you need
Just look around the room
So much of her remains


Her book is lying on the bed
The Two of Hearts to mark her page
Now, who could ever walk away
At chapter twenty-one
So, she can't be really gone


Just look around the room
So much of her remains


Her book is lying on the bed
The Two of Hearts to mark her page
Now, who could ever walk away
With so much left undone
So, she can't be really gone


No, she can't be really gone

I'm Back!

There is still not much going on, but I am pestering Mom today and she said maybe we should work on the blog.  They are cutting the gras...
