39 years later...

21st June 1982...
three of my good friends killed in a car crash rose rose sad flower
one was 21, another 20 and my best friend...she had just turned seventeen.

After so many years I'm well over it still... never are they forgotten and not thought about.
Now as a much older person, I look back and recognize the mums loss more than my own.

Her name was Agnes, had not long being diagnosed with cancer and was actually still in hospital that night of the crash, was due to be going home in the morning, how excited she was about it also. I remember that time well because her girls and I had redecorated her bedroom as a nice welcome home present for her.

Her eldest daughter was the 21yr old girl killed in the accident, and her youngest daughter was my 17yr old best friend... how she lived for those girls.

She had two sons left.....
the eldest was a bad egg but her youngest, a bit of a wild one yet he stood up when the other didn't, minded her. 4mths later he too was in a serious car accident himself, after X amount of days, they turned off his life support machine... 21st of October.

Exactly 6mths later she herself died.
she was discovered dead in her bed the morning of December 21st.
Wasn't the cancer that killed her, but she died from a broken heart instead sad flower
But given her sadness I myself think there was Kindness in her death.

Her eldest son then came back from England pretended he was living with her all the time, he lied with the hope he would get the house.... And thankfully he did because the house brought him nothing but bad luck which is all he deserved thumbs down

Before Agnes and her family lived there, it was the house where my aunt lived with her young family.
looking back now, I remember how often my aunt complained about the house, couldn't shake the feeling it was bad luck, what a different person she were whilst living init... when her daughter died twice in one night... that's when she decided enough, time to move.. her misfortunes and bad luck then saddy became Agnes and hers... crying

Anyways, tonight I'm just looking back remembering my friends rose rose rose rose sad flower

That's so sad, I'm very sorry to hear about it, please look after yourself. sad flower
That bad son, is he still bad to this day? Have you contact with him, would it make sense to be a friend with him, or is he just not a good one for good?
I'm grand Ged, honestly I am hug
But Agnes she had it sad.

Often I lived with them, she often referred to me as her adopted daughter.
After her daughters deaths I often visited her, a week wouldn't pass that I didn't, then one day with tears in her eyes she told me not to call again.... it was too hard for her seeing me without seeing them.

secretly I was thankful because I knew exactly what she meant.

She was a great woman, didn't deserve the sadness she was given, after all the joy she gave to others often along the way.... the unfairness of life.

Last time I heard something about him was that he too had being in a car accident himself, a serious one but survived ... he now walks on crutches and I'm not sure if that's because of the accident or something else.
Is this a true story or a ramble from your booze fuddled brain cells

I am someone worth knowing but I'll leave you to be the judge of that... lol
It's hard to describe myself as in personality wise, where I may not be the best, I most certainly am not the worst, but I do tend to be more on the quiet side, more so the [read more]
