Today I took what was to be her birthday cake to the nursing home that she lived in. I had the wording changed from "Happy 90th Birthday" to "Thank You From The Family Of Betty Redmond".
I know there is a party in heaven. The two lifelong friends and lovers are reunited again. While they are celebrating their reunion we are eating cake on earth.
I know that I should be happy for Mom and Dad, and I am. I am just sorry for me. I've lost my best friend and nagging Mother.
