A little music could make us betterPublished 1:09am Saturday, October 26, 2013
You know, I was just sitting here thinking of all the people that are sick and dying of cancer. Some can’t get help and they need it very much. I guess it is the kind of person you are. There are so many people right around here that are sick and lots don’t know it. You see, I had two very good friends that passed away a while back that had the same illness. We grew up together. Then here comes my husband, Newton Busbee and two friends came every week to see him and how he was doing while he was alive. Now no one comes to see how I’m doing.
I lost Newton and I’m by myself from now on. No, Newton Busbee to see and look after. The house is empty without him. No more talking to him every day. I can’t hardly stand it. You don’t throw away 30 years for nothing. Oh, people say you will get over it and go one and live your life. But let me tell you something: it is easier said than done. I loved him very much. Maybe people don’t feel like I do.
Let me tell you something, lots of people that lose their husband or wife, then they are ready to marry again. You are supposed to wait a year, at least, before you get married again. It doesn’t work like that any more.
One thing I would like to do is sing for people that area sick and it might make them feel better. You see, one person knows that I can sing. Sue Chambers, put a bunch of sick people together some place and let’s have some good singing. Country, and rock and roll music. I’m 70, but I can still sing like I used to do.
