Life and Death ~* RIP Jerry Ruiz *~

This was one of the last pictures I took with Jerry. RIP. You will never be forgotten.

About two weeks ago I got a phone call from Izzy telling me that a friend of our had died early that morning in a car accident. I cried all day and couldn't even talk to anyone with out breaking into tears. The following weekend was the Rosary/viewing, and the Funeral proceedding with the buriel. That was one of the toughest things I have ever had to go through. It was so emotional for both Izzy and I. Death is something you can never prepare yourself for. Jerry had only just turned 33 in December. He had a girlfriend Denise of 13 years. Both Denise and his Mom were a mess at his services. His mom lost her sister just 4 days after Jerry passed away.

The last two weeks I have been thinking a lot about life, death, and the things I take for granted. Life is short and so many people take every second, every breath for granted and I have begun to stop myself when I find myself doing that. I appreciate my boyfriend and everything he does for me and if I find myself getting into routine, and taking him for granted I give him a kiss, or hug, or hold his hand and think of how I would feel if I lost him. (I don't mean that in a morbid way) I have thought about my family and all the wonderful moments we have shared and all the many more moments to come. Each and everyone of my family members flashed through my head and I thought of how thankful and lucky I am to have such a strong, happy, amaizing, couragous, loving family.

I have taken millions of pictures in my life and I am glad I did. People get mad at me sometimes, but that is just too bad. I will never stop. I may NEVER get around to scrapbooking all of them, but they are memories that I can keep when my mind forgets.

Thank you for reading my post I hope by reading this you hug and kiss the ones you love more, you call your friends just to tell them you are thinking of them and that you love them, you forgive those who have done you wrong, never forget the kindness of others, and Live each day as if it were your last.

~**~*No, I do not plan on dying any time soon, just making plans to live life to it's fulllest until it is my time to part this earth and be with the Angels. *~ ** ~
