I am from the Do or Die... Never Ran. Never Will. (Unless of course... they shootin') Easy!"

Savor the Flavor.
Ten years ago. I nearly died.

If hadn't been found by a very special person.

No Bk Babe would here today. Or I would probably be a vegetable if I were not found.

Funny. That near death experience is hard to remember.

Being so close to death... and not even having a clue.

A TRUE LIFE SAVER.

And now...

Ten years later. That person is gone.

And Bk Babe could not return the favor.

All I can do is

Savor the Flavor...

of our memories.

And I want to THANK them, for saving my life!

I want to thank them for even being in my life, to save my life!

I want to THANK them for having life, and having it more abundantly.

Today I get to say my FINAL thank you in person... what a hard "thank U" to say...

Life is funny. Its sends out no post cards, or bill collector reminders, to tell the end is near. I would of never known just bumping into this person just 3 short weeks ago, ALIVE and well. That they would not be here to day. You know even if life did send out calls like that... we still would not answer; after all... who wants to answer "death?".... You've seen how the Grim Reaper gets treated... he's not getting any invitations.... but somehow some way.... sublimal messages are sent to our subconsciousness... and those messages *nag* and *tag* at us to reach out and CONNECT.... and just as with the many "to do" task on our list, we put it in that LATER box. Now I've learned sometimes LATER never comes....

Rest in Peace

Mi Tia...

"These tears I shed, are happy ones..."

I HAVE DEDICATED THIS PAGE TO YOU....

I hope to see you again...

MUCH Later.

With Much Love,

Bk Babe

(still shedding..)
