Samuel James Earp was born 1920 in Spotsylvania County, VA.. He died at the young age of 72, in 1993, on Tax day!
We just had gone thru Hurricane Andrew together in August, 1992 before while living in Islamorada, Fla Keys.
I am lucky to be alive, and treasure my life now. Stupid to stay there, but I would not leave my dad to go thru Andrew alone! Little did we know that he wouldnt be here 6 months later.
The last words we spoke to each other was "I love You"..and he drove off to the VA hospital in Miami, where he died a week later!
(totally unexpected!)(what a major shock in my life)
I miss him so much, who the hell brought this subject up anyway?
This has made me so sad, as I just lost my mother, WHO BTW was born in 1917, and died December 2004.
I took care of her for 7 years while the ravages of Alzheimers Disease took it's ugly toll on her.
Jeez.......I am now just getting on with my life......
