RIP MSA Warriors, GEOFF AITKEN AND WILLIAM JOHN TODD, MR. JAMIE MIDDLEBROOK AND ROBIN WILLIAMS


Last week brought some good moments and yesterday and today brought sad moments. Two of my friends spouse and father passed away from MSA; the same disease that my brother had. I can’t help but be swept back to the last few days of Al’s life. What I try to do instead of being swallowed up in sadness is pour my heart and feelings out to the ones remaining as I know and remember how they are feeling now.

Another thing that happened today was a funeral for a well-known and very respected man from a city near me who died in the duty of being a fireman. I happened to flip the TV on and was seeing the ending of the funeral for him. I watched, not being able to tear myself away from that station as the salutes, last words, and all the people walked by the casket paying their last respect.

I did shed a few tears as I still remember very well sitting out in the cemetery hearing some of those same words.

Then tonight I learn of the death of my favorite actor, Robin Williams. I have two DVD’s of the same movie called Patch Adams. I absolutely love his acting, the gut of the story.

He played in all types of movies, most were funny, some were serious, and others had deep thought to them. It didn’t matter what acting part he played as his role, I only saw his brilliance of what and what he represented.

Some movies he starred in were;

GOOD WILL HUNTING

PATCH ADAMS

THE BUTLER

POPEYE

FORREST GUMP

DEAD POETS SOCIETY

THE BIRDCAGE

just to name a few.

Robin Williams, you will be truly missed by many and I know I will never forget you. Today has reminded me that we do not know our last moment. We must work hard at making every day count. If you or I are in a position that is hard to bear, change it. If you are in a relationship where it doesn’t feel comfortable, get out. Get all of your eggs in a row, as we say here in my town. Be alert, be ready, and be happy with your life. RIP to my friends I have lost this week, Jamie Middlebrook, Mr. Fireman, Geoff Aitken, MSA and, William John Todd, MSA, and Robin Williams.
