I am home from SAFF. It was lovely and I met a lot of fabulous people and now I am sick. In fact I drove home on Tuesday with a fever :( My friend Niki must have been miserable because I had the heat cranked up on my side all the way to 85 and I had the heated seats on…then my fever would break and I would have on the air conditioner. What a patient soul…
We spent a lot of time with Elizabeth and Roo and became fast friends. If you meet a more generous and kind person than Roo let me know….it will be a miracle :) I don’t think she has ever met a stranger ;)
All in all it was a great trip, made all the better because you drive through my hometown of Sevierville on the way through. This meant I got to see my mom and a dear friend, Pam that I haven’t seen in 15+ years.
Pam is Bridgette’s sister. Bridgette was my best friend for years. We raised each other because our parents were dealing with there own issues and somehow we survived. On June 17th of this year (I will never forget that date) I decided that after years of searching for Bridgette I was going to hire someone to find her. I did a google search for her name one last time and found her obituary. Bridgette died in a car accident on June 16, 2010. I was devastated…

It was great to find Pam and cry with her. We didn’t miss a step, it was like we never lost track of each other. You better believe it won’t happen again!
RIP Bridgette…I miss you
