    I'm sorry for the threads that I dropped, but it's been a little tougher time this go around.

    Went to E.R. yesterday and they said all is normal. In spite of a blood pressure of 218/126 and pulse of 142. Of course that was on my home monitor and I was walking around at the time. But they only pacified me by checking my BP while just standing up. They ran blood gases, blood tests and did an ECG and all were normal. Oh well....It was even quite noticable that I was out of breath because the nurse insisted on my having a wheelchair and every one kept asking if I was ok.

    But the worst was I got a call today and learned that my favorite cousin/best freind and our other cousin was found murdered this morning. So I'll be out of pocket for a few days. I'm ok, just deeply saddened.

    I'm just dropping in for a minute to thank you all for such kind and supportive words of comfort.

    The funeral date hasn't been set as of yet and the murders are still under investigation. This was a very small town and the police stated that they can't remember when the last murder happened there.

    My cousin was a wonderful, kind soul who always looked after the underdogs. She did not do drugs or run with those circles at all. And her nephew (my second cousin) never did either to my knowlege. Yet they were murdered still. Why???

    When Anita and I were wee little ones, we were inseprable. I remember fondly the days when we would bathe together in an old wash tub in the back yard...LOL. As we grew up, I was quiet and unpopular but she was the "it" of school. But she always made sure that I was ivolved in her social life and was very patient and understanding when I preferred to be alone. She sang for several years with a gospel group and made a solo record. We went bowling, skating, to movies and I went to her music rehersals. She was my best friend.[This Message was Edited on 02/08/2008]

    Your story reallly touched me. I wish that your best friend and cousin did not leave this earth in such a manner, it seems so unfair. I only hope that God gives you peace in knowing that they are safe now and happy. You are very lucky to have such fond memories, how great that you shared such a closeness. It sounds like the two of you were truly the best of friends.

    My heart and thoughts go out to you today. I am saying a prayer for you and your family. Take good care of yourself. Hugs, Kim :)
