best friend Jesse
Bismarck, ND, drove all the way to Texas to
visit his best friend then drove to Ellsworth, ME to visit me for an
early birthday treat! I hadn't seen him since 2,009 when he
drove here with my late husband Speaker Gerald A. Polley and I when we
moved back home in the U Haul to make sure we made it ok. My birthday
is actually on July 14th and I'll be 64, however, he arrived on Friday,
July 3rd and we had a wonderful visit which included a brief tribute to
Gerald at our urn with his ashes which I have on my bureau in the
bedroom. Gerald died on July 4, 2,012 of colorectal cancer at age 65. We had been married for 40 years.
I store my bingo stuff on the left side of the urn because Gerald loved
it that I played bingo where I live and wanted me to keep doing so to
socialize. I even did this the day after he died.
First thing Jesse & I went to Governor's restaurant here in Ellsworth, where he bought me
dinner. I got to have my lobster roll and bring home my favorite treat,
their home made peanut butter cup which is awesome. Saturday,
July 4th, we went to Bangor, Maine and had lunch at The Olive Garden,
their delicious lasagna. Jesse paid for this too!
After we went to The Bangor Mall Cinemas 10 and saw "Terminator
3D which was fantastic, also his
When he brought
me home the neighbors were having
a barbecue and he was invited. We enjoyed that then sadly it
was time for Jesse to go back to his motel and get ready to leave
the next morning. I think it's awesome on the 4th we
ended up having the same color shirts on! The gray 4th of July shirt I
was wearing I also wore on the day Gerald died. I always try to
wear it every year on that day as a tribute.
This was one of the most awesome things that ever could happen, Jesse's
visit! It was very energizing and gave me hope to carry on
with the Work.
Thank you so much Jesse Torres! I don't know how I deserve
such an awesome friend in my life but I'm glad you are and hope this
remains the case for eternity. I just know Gerald and my
other Spirit friends in The Afterlife are very pleased you came here.
