Another Pausing (Edit)

Dr. Lee Phelps, PhD, Professor Emeritus SDSU.

Yesterday Lee died….passed the Geezer would say. We were honored to know this sprite.

“The only good thing from all of this,” he told the J2’s, “is that I got closer to my son.”

Here Lee grins out at all of us between the Geezer and TimJ2. I’m so glad we wandered up to the north county last week and talked at him. That visit helped us both yesterday when his son called. I'm so grateful I was able to talk with Marion the other day...however briefly.

Yesterday, Marion died. I’ll be sending both Marion and Lee gratitude and love for being in our lives. I’ll send the same thoughts to Lee and Marion's families while I putter through my day.

Tomorrow morning, I see the GP. I’ll take copies of everything, including a new and more comprehensive allergy list and an updated medical history into the office tomorrow. I’ll take both Lee and Marion with me in my heart too.


  1. I hope you can feel the heartfelt condolences I am sending your way right now. Peace and blessings to you and Geezer.

  2. I'm so sorry, I'm sure the world is little smaller without him.

  3. People live on through the memories of friends and family. May Lee continue to live in your memories.

  4. Ah, Maggie, so many losses. I am so sorry.

  5. Maggie, I send you my deepest condolences. Even though you knew Marion and Lee were not going to recover, it must be so sad to think of them not here. Yet, perhaps with time, they will stand beside you and your will feel their loving company again.

    I will be thinking of you tomorrow and crossing my fingers all is well. Can you think of me when you get up in the morning: I have a job interview...

  6. Oh, I am so sorry. What a terrible time for you. feel the support going out to you.........and a hug.

  7. Amazing people have amazing friends, Maggie.

    Peace and love, Kathy

  8. Damn it! I wanted Marion to live forever. The words to that James Taylor song are keening through my head now: "I always thought I'd see you again." I always thought I would get back down there, & that she would still be there.

    The world seems a little lonelier without her, doesn't it?


What a delight to get a note from you. Thanks for leaving one.
