    COLETTE AND FAMILYÖ. Life has some really tough periods. Some of the toughest things in life would be losing a spouse, parent, next would be a child.. and then a close friend. I considered Ms Worley my friend and I think I was hers. She entered my life when I needed a place to live and I entered her life and helped where I could due to her failing eye sight but I think I benefitted more from our relationship than she did. On many occasions I would cook in the evening and I would call her and ask her if she would like for me to bring her what I was having. He response was alwaysÖ ooooo I would love it. Two dishes She really liked was my chicken and catfish. At times She would call because her tv was broken, of course it was not broken but because of her failing eye sight she just pushed the wrong button on the remote and it would not turn on. One interesting thing about her is for all that she went through she complained very little and seemed to show very little frustration with her eyesight failing. I question how many of use would have that kind of style and grace in dealing with her situation. Other statements and things that come to mind.. Until you are better paid. (when I would do something for her) Can you read this microwave instruction. Can you pick me up some bananas and saltines, how she loved her bananas and saltines. Weíll miss you sweetie. You lived a long full life with style and grace and beauty and you were a living example of handeling adversity. Now your with GOD with crystal clear sight enjoying the wonders of Heaven. Weíll See you soon. Love Mickey
