I Think I’m Ready

Tomorrow will be difficult but as usual, you all have pulled me through!
As long as I keep the tears in!  lol!  ‘Silly Me’ even reminded me to breathe!!  I also have my song ready to go. 
I want to thank all of you for your kind comments.    You know what?  I’ve always said you were the BEST friends and it makes me smile to see you interacting with each other.  Once again, you are all the best!

Sorry to bring this Vietnam War crap up again but 3 more things:
 
1. Waking up in the middle of the night smelling that place and the daily stench of death.  REALLY!
 
2. Having 32 buddies on the Washington War Memorial Wall
 
3. Watching that beautiful country reduced to a ‘moonscape’
 
DONE!!
 
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….
 
Sadly, I have been neglecting my feet and the nerves in my legs.  Killing me!!  So I am back on schedule. Ahhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!
 
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….
 
I think that by now, everyone has listened to the song I’m playing at John’s service so I’m changing to one of my favorites.  This guy (Jamie Johnson) is a songwriter for many artists who is just now coming out with his first CD.  Love, Love, Love this song!!!   I know…. I’ve played it before.  Just too good!
 
 
 
I’ll let you all know how the funeral service went tomorrow.

    Just remember, it’s not about you… no one will be caring how you do, they’re thinking of John, so as long as you make them think about him, you’re golden! Silly Me is right.. just breathe, think of John and his wife. She is devastated right now, so concentrate on her.. That’s the easiest way to not be nervous.. just think of them, try to make them feel better, and you won’t think of yourself enough to be nervous!!! You’ll do great.. you loved John, so you’ll do good..
    hugs,
    Jean

    Bob, breaking down is probably expected more than you realize.   And you loved this person,  that is why you were asked to speak.  It’s o.k. to tear up, stutter and to remember the great times with your buddy with the water works going.  
    That damn war has damaged so many.  And continues to do it to this day.  Please take care of yourself.   I know that when things like the loss of a close friend happens it tends to get everything in our minds rolling again and it can cause extreme flash*backs.  
    You are one of my HERO’s.   I’m angry still about the reception that YOU and the rest of my HERO’s got when you returned home.   And I’m sure no matter what My generation can do for you and your fellow comrads to try and make up for the BULLSHIT that you recieved when you did come home that it will never make up for that. 
    Bob, you warm my heart and my soul.  I will pray that you can find peace within your mind.   And I know you’ve been told this more than a million times.  THEY MADE YOU DO IT ALL.   It wasn’t your choice… it’s not your fault….you were trying to survive and you did what you were made to do.   You are a GREAT man.
    Take care ttfn
