Happy Birthday Mom!

Last year, my father wrote a Hub about my mom.  Today, October 8th is her birthday.  This year, she would be 75.  I'm trying to imagine what she would have looked like had she made it to 75.  Which brings me to last night's Facebook exchange.

Vernon Bradley HEY, EVERYBODY TOMORROW IS THE LADY'S BIRTHDAY. SHE WOULD BE 75. I DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE DIE. I IMAGINE WE STOP AGING. SO MAYBE SHE IS NOT 75, BUT IS JUST A BEAUTIFUL AGELESS WOMAN IN HEAVEN.

SO CHECK OUT THE BLOG I WROTE LAST YEAR ABOUT THE LADY AND HAVE BEEF STROGANOFF TODAY IN HER HONOR

Marianne Byers I miss Roberta. Noel's godmother.

Jacob Byers I miss her so much too, I love envisioning my kids running up to her to show her stuff, and her being there with her welcoming smile and gentle presence.

Neffertti S. Bradley I like that,a beautiful ageless woman in heaven! I thank you Roberta for David.He is a wonderful human being. He is my angel on this earth...


How lucky we all are to know you Roberta Marie O'Neill Bradley.  Thank you for making your presence known and for watching over me, my family, friends and my wife.  Thank you for showing me love, compassion, and forgiveness.  I miss being able to see you in physical form.  I miss being able to hug you.  But I still "see" you and feel your presence everyday.


Since you left this earth, you've still been teaching me.  I'm learning more about true faith, connecting to infinity and way more open.  Please keep the lessons coming...


Happy Birthday once again! 

It's 7:45 am.  Today is Doris' Funeral.  Ironic?  Let's see what the day holds...  Eyes and ears open everyone!

O my O my. Yea, what a deal with Doris' memorial service being today. Could have been any day. Thanks for posting this, David. gives me one more cry for the day. Should have all my sinuses cleaned out by the time the day is over. I am so glad we had the time together during those final weeks and days. I appreciated you so much during those days, as I appreciate you now. I miss Roberta so very very much. I think sometimes I have no idea how much I miss her. So Happy Birthday, dear Lady. Thanis for all you do for us from your place there. Looking forward to seeing you again and hopefully I will see you somehow somewhere today. You are so clever at making your presence known.
