“I just want to say, good night, sweet prince, may flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.”~ Harry Dean Stanton
I have not been asked to do this. I am not being forced to write about this either. I do this because I still have love in my heart.
But I wish to take this time to share with you something that was close enough to become personal.
For those of you who have been reading my blog for the last year or so will probably remember the blog post that I wrote when I had reunited with my beautiful friend that I had not seen since I was a child over breakfast.
She was the one that I called the Bear Queen. She still is, to me. I still respond to her with “yes your highness” and she could be rolling her eyes at me. But that’s who I am and that’s what it is.
She’s still around. I talk with her every once in a while…
For those of you who are unfamiliar, here’s that post:
This weekend will come again the annual breakfast but this time I will not be graced with wonderful presence of the Bear Queen. How her absence will be felt and missed.
But fate has other things in mind. Her best friend in the world just recently lost her 16 year old child. And so the Bear Queen has been that pillar of strength and love and compassion for her best friend.
The Bear Queen even has set up her best friend to give her a little help with everything that has been going on. A little help to relieve some of the burden put upon her by this tragic loss. I tend to agree whole-heartedly when I hear people say that parents should not have to bury their children.
And I wanted to share this opportunity to help her friend in her greatest time of need. She is so close to reaching the goal. I would love to see her get there and go beyond. So many people already have contributed their love but this truly is a project that I believe in because it IS so personal to me.
Take the time to look around. To read everything there is to know. And do what you feel is best.
So please consider. I’d much prefer someone helping in this time of need more than anything. Now would be that time, and this would be that way of helping.
And to those who do decide, Dambreaker PERSONALLY gives you thanks in advance.
