I am having so much difficulty dealing with this. Rosanne and I became friends over 2 years ago. We wrote each other each and every day and spent countless hours on the phone. Every couple of months I would find a package in the mail for my two sons. She sent us Texas soup, T-shirts, and little surprises. She was my "true buddy".
Two weeks ago, I had my ultimate dream come true. My husband,myself, and our two boys flew to Memphis and met Rosanne and Jim at Graceland. We connected instantly. We spent 4 wonderful days together never having a moment apart. She was everything I expected. Kind , generous, and so funny. She was beautiful inside and out. She always dressed outstanding and always looked like a million bucks. She was so proud of her kids and I could see the love she and Jim had for each other. We went to Graceland first with our families and then just the two of us. I will treasure that moment forever. She told me Graceland was her favorite place in the world and that it gave her so much peace. It made her feel close to her parents. She went and said a silent prayer to Elvis. I cannot help but think this trip was meant to be. She told me she would normally never go to Graceland this time of the year because of the heat but because of us she made her last trip.
My heart is broken. Two weeks ago today I was at the top of the world and today I have reached my lowest point. Rosanne was planning on visiting me next summer and we planned on doing many more trips together with our famillies. I loved her very much and I know she loved me. This is going to be very difficult on me. Thank _god for Gail and our constant chats these last two days. I will miss her so much. I know she is with her Mother and Daddy now and somewhere in heaven Elvis is waiting to sing to her again.
