I decided to stay until her wrist got better, because to this point my mother's mind hadn't completely gone off the rails -- this was still (but very soon ahead) to come
I had plans to go to NYC for the Summer and was also "talking to a girl" and had plans to spend time, too, with her but Allie Cheslick told me I wouldn't be able to go, that I needed to stay with "Mama Brewer"
my response: "I don't THINK so !!"
I said "she'll be fine, I will only be gone a few weeks, etc etc etc. I am not sitting here in Ohio all Summer and not going to NYC"
to which she responded, in typically Allie fashion "you're not going to be able to go"
this conversation, as you might imagine, went ON for awhile and as my mother's dementia began to rev up -- and my running narrative on FB got more and more attention, many people told me to just BOLT . . . leave the crazy old woman and G-O
but I couldn't do that and when I would think, "I can't live like this another day", Allie was usually the one to talk me back down to Unicorn Junction
of course, this tour guide to Unicornia function ran both directions and I spent lots of time talking with Allie about what she was going through in learning she was adopted and the search for her true genetic family and what it all means/meant
so much to say about those conversations but I will share this: Allie had a lot of love to give, she was probably the most generous person with her heart of anyone I knew
but, like her "brother from another mother", she was emotional and a hot-head and not always equipped with an editing function on her mouth (nor was I hahahaah)
and some days she would bail me out, other days I would bail her out . . . and that old joke about a true friend is the one who does it, too, and goes to jail with you . . . that was us
My "career" would NOT be where it is now without her -- the hours and hours of "Allie and Andy-ness" did great things for each of us and, years ago, brought each of us a lot of attention
but more than what she did to assist my career, far more importantly were all the thousands of ways she showed love to me as her friend
I helped her with issues; she helped me with issues . . . it is what friends do
the fact that we were both semi-famous psychics didn't change that fact and the typical "who's more famous" kinds of madness you may have to deal with in "Psychic World" NEVER were an issue with us
we were little kids who liked each other
she was one of a kind
I know the kids are hurting and I know that Jill Dahne Levy is also hurting a lot, too. After Cristina Rose DeCamargo and Claudio David DeCamargo, I thought first of Jill
so just as I am heart-broken, so, too, is JIll :(
I loved her -- and for Cristina and Claudio, your mother was truly one of a kind, such a kind sweet soul, who loved you both soooooooooooooooooo much
I don't know (honestly) that I have EVER known anyone so in love with her children as your mother and I am not saying that because it sounds nice, I am saying it because I believe it is true
we spent hours and hours talking about our babies !!!!! :)
it was the one area in our lives in which we were both truly 100 % grateful and filled with love
she was a tremendous psychic but, far more importantly, she was a tremendous person
FUNNY -- OMFG, I guess so :)
I don't know what I will do not having her to turn to . . . she was special and I truly loved her
and she talks to me now non-stop, too . . . what the hell :)
Rebecca Taylor you will now have your "truth" -- I love ya and miss ya
