I would wait all day to receive another update on my grandfather's health, only to be disheartened by the news. Anxiety riddled and restless, I wandered the world with sunken eyes and a quivering voice. Despite being unrelated by blood, I had known him most of my life. He was dying, and although we had never been close, I felt like a part of me was dying with him. Afraid of losing a loved family member, I prepared myself for his departure.
Anne recalls the worst thing about the situation was having to call her sister and tell her the story. Anne’s sister Mandy truly understood and simply made a call to the insurance company to see if reimbursements were possible. Nothing else was heard about the car or the perpetrator until the Wednesday after the incident, almost a week later. Mandy received a call informing her the CUMRU township police had found her car Friday night, immediately after the incident, crashed on the side of the road. Mandy of course inquired as to why she had not been contacted for so many days only to find out that the Reading Police Department had not put the theft into the computer system leaving all other departments unknowledgeable about the incident.
I would always refer myself as daddy’s girl and for quite a while I don’t know what got into me, but I never seemed to get along with my mom. It was always my dad I wanted to be with. The right words never came across my mind when being around my mom. This all suddenly changed the day my dad got home early from work with a harsh pain in his lower spine. It was so bad he found it hard to sit up straight; he had to be lying down to lessen the pain.
I wondered why there wasn't a cure for her. Is it because there is not enough money for research? I think every day that this will be over soon and there will be a new medicine she can try. There have been many drugs that doctors have prescribed but none seemed to work. My mother and our whole family get our hopes up so high every time.
It was the first of November, 2014, my in-laws had gathered to celebrate a family birthday, but the only person that wasn’t present was Stephani... ... middle of paper ... ...the first day.” Steph and I bonded early in our friendship. I was the new girlfriend to her brother, and she was the potential sister from which I was trying to gain acceptance. I remember the first time I ever stepped up for her. She went to a party the previous night, lost her car, and broke her phone. Wanting to help my future sister-in-law, I fronted her the money to get it replaced before her mom found out that she had been drinking all night.
Gars mother died shortly after his birth, this was a huge upset for him and his father. To make things worst Gar's father, S.B, does not get on with his only son, even know Gar lives and works with him. They see each other every day and still their communication levels are low. ''If he wants to speak to me he knows where to find me! But I'm damned if I'm going to speak to him first''.
One our way there we made a stop to meet up with my mom’s aunt and give her flowers because she was really sick. We also made a stop to see our cousins and play to get energy out. These were just things to help us stay entertained for a little bit before getting back in the car for a long ride. As soon as we got to the hotel we got to go swimming and watch the fireworks from our hotel. That day was one of the best days I have ever had.
Yes, life went on but grandma is still trapped in the past. When dad came home from the hospital she announces she has hired a new help. Dad has told grandma countless times why they had to cut down on the help but she refuses accept the fact, rather than helping herself. I am scared. I am scared I might lose another little sister.
Basically, I didn’t have a social life anymore. My relationship with my husband was also going down the drain because we never spent any quality time together. My whole life was a big mess at that Cabarcas 2 point, but whenever I saw Andy’s face he made my heart smile. Andy was a year old and he didn’t talk much I got worried, but the Doctor told me to wait a few more months because boy’s take a little bit longer than girls to start talking, so I did. In despite of all the frustration and despair I always showed Andy a lot of love.
I thought nothing of it because I knew that he and Julie had recently taken a break from each other in order to possibly save their relationship, just like Mike and I had done almost three weeks earlier. I figured he wanted to ask me questions about how Mike and I were handling it and what he could do to reconcile with Julie. He called around nine o’clock and said he had just driven across the causeway and would be at my house in five minutes. I hurriedly threw on a sweatshirt over my long-sleeved t-shirt and jeans. Dave came to the door and told my parents we were going out for ice cream.
