Queeniemary Posted August 14, 2010 Report Share Posted August 14, 2010 Life is going on....does not seem possible. Yesterday Michael has been gone 7 months, and our oldest GreatGrandchild turned 3. I seem to be managing all right, I am trying to move forward, but sometimes, it still hits me in the gut and I just almost have to double over. Will I ever stop missing him so much. There is not a day passes that I don't think of him, and wish he was still here. I will say that the shock of his death has diminished somewhat, but there is still a big hole in my life that only he could fill. I fell in love with him the first time I met him. He had just moved to this area, and a friend had encouraged him to come to a Theatre Company audition. I happened to be the assistant director on that production. He had never been on stage before, but he was a natural, and went on to become the best actor in our Theatre Company. He also worked as Earthquake McGoon, at Dogpatch USA, for those of you that might remember that theme park, based on Al Capps comic strip. Over the next 25 years, he acted, directed, and we were together in many plays, acting or directing. One of my favorites was "Fiddler on the Roof", where he played Tevia and I played Golda. We sang the "Do you Love Me" song from that musical at many functions. I am still very involved in theater, but it is just not the same without him. Thanks for letting me ramble, I am missing him so very much today...I am putting together a scrap book for the Arts Council, and there are so many pictures and articles about him, in various roles. Done a lot of crying today, but it was good tears, from wonderful memories of him. Going to spend this evening with my good friend Dana, who lost her husband (at age 48) about 1 1/2 years ago. We are eating out, watching a movie, and drinking a little wine of the vine. She is having some surgery next week, so this is our big party before her surgery. My Michael and Dana's husband Morris were good friends, and I would like to think they are together, watching out for us. Good weekend, and peace to all of us who are in this club we did not ask to join. God Bless you all for being here and listening to me go on and on.
