Hi Anne - I wrote a message to you, Anne but clicked on the wrong name, I guess? Anyway, my message went to Kick, below, so just click on her name and my message is on her site if she hasn't deleted it? I will get back to you later, alligator - Tom

RE: Your Messsage to Kathleen kennedy Cavendish
Hello Anne! I'm sorry for replying so late. It's been a very busy month for me.

I have never met anyone who shows so much admiration for Kathleen besides me.. so glad I met you! Kathleen truly was wonderful, and it makes me happy that there are others who agree with that! Of course the other Kennedy women were spectacular too, but I can never stop being fascinated by Kathleen!

In the biography, "Kathleen Kennedy: Her Life and Times", I've learned so much about her. She was so different from her family. There are also some crazy stories as well; if you want me to tell you them, just ask :)

Did you say you MET Kathleen in real life?

I was reading some of Kathleen's letters and she really did seem very shaken up over Billy's death. Poor Kathleen. Only spent a short amount of time with him.. do you think she truly loved him? She said in one of her letters after his death: "Please dont worry about me... I certainly am well taken care of and Billy always seems quite near." I love that quote!

Yes, it's really awful how Joe Sr. was the only one to attend the funeral. I know her brother Jack wanted to go but apparently he was far too upset to attend.. not sure about the other siblings. It'd sad how Rose only forgave Kathleen AFTER she died. I wonder how Kathleen felt in her last moments. Upset? Angry? Scared?

I was so happy to find her on findagrave as well, for I really wish I could tell her how much I admire her. Have you ever been to her grave? It's my dream to see it in person. It'll be like I'm meeting her. I also want to see Billy's grave.

Oh yes, the three of us (you, her and I!) will have so much fun dancing with her and having picnics with her in Heaven. It will be great fun.

Can't wait to hear from you,

Hi Anne - thanks for your latest message. I hope you and your hubby had a fun time at the state fair and didn't fall out of any of those dangerous rides! I haven't been to a state fair (anywhere) for a long time. My kids are are grown and now I avoid the crowds all I can and I can have a dangerous ride anytime I want.... on my Harley-ha! I now hang out at haunted cemeteries which is enough excitement and fun for me and less expensive than going to the state fair. Ghosts do not charge parking fees and they scare you for free. I was just at one on a Harley ride to Hays Cemetery in Hancock County.... No crowds, no noise, just peace and quiet among the ghosts only they must have gone to the fair because I didn't see any? Oh well, maybe next time? Yes, like cigarettes, food is an addiction when over-eating is concerned. it takes some real understanding of what is good or bad for you when picking the food to eat. I have learned to always look at the labels and consider the contents of what I eat. I have been told that cigarette smoking isn't an addiction, just a psychological habit - SURE - just try quitting and then you will know it is definitely an addiction and that goes for stopping the junk food and sugar coated goodies we all love but is killing us.... So, I am proud of you for facing up to your demons and doing something about it, good for you, Anne. keep up the good fight and the sacrifices will be worth the effort not only for your bodily health but for your self esteem and I speak from experience ... I haven't smoked a cigarette in over 30 years quitting a 3-pack a day addiction to cigarettes (with God's help) and I am now back to a normal weight for my height and age and that keeps my diabetes in check along with walking a lot. Keep up the good work, you're going to make it, you'll see... be kind to yourself in the meantime, it takes time and won't happen over night so hang in there - Tommo on the go- later alligator....

Hi Anne - I knew you would do good at the OA meeting, good for you! Keep going back because the group knows very well and understands what it is to deal with being over weight and they understand and care more than anyone else. I never had to deal with a weight problem until the last few years and allowed myself to eventually gain around 32 pounds over what my normal weight should be for my height and age.... I knew I had to lose the weight and wanted to lose the extra weight which was from eating all the wrong foods and snacking on Little Debbies, jelly doughnuts, Chicken McNuggets and all that junk food I loved to feed my face with. I decided to go on a diet and Jenny Craig helped me with learning how to eat the right foods, the correct proportions and since then I have gone on my own and haven't gain one pound, I stick to the right foods and that's the trick of losing weight, it takes sacrifice and will-power but you don't have to starve yourself to death to lose weight, trust me. I eat smaller amounts and more fruits and vegetables and absolutely no sugar junk stuff, no Cokes or Pepsi and instead I drink a lot of water using lemon and raspberry "Crystal Light" which makes the water taste good without the calories of soft drinks and water is so much better for you. I can eat all the vegetables that I want and vegetables are like a safety net when I feel hungry, I open a small can of green beans, carrots, or open a jar of beats (sugarless) and that makes for my snacks instead of the Little Debbies that I used to wolf down, no more, I have totally divorced Little Debbie, she was killing me! Read the calories on the cans, packages, and I never buy food from China, never! I hike and walk a lot, I do not jog to save damage to my knees and walking is good for you. I made my weight loss a mission and I am back to my normal weight and can breathe better, mowing the yard, front and back, without gasping for air and taking breaks and now can mow all my yard in one effort, that is a good feeling to be able to breathe normally again and my heart thanks me for it. Like all addictions (food can be addictive) it takes first #1 - you must want to lose weight and two #2 - you must be willing to hang in there and deal with it and that's not easy but this is what I do, I ask God for the strength. Back in the low 1980's I was smoking 3 packs a day - yes - 3 packs a day!!! It was killing me and I knew it and I had to quit smoking, not an easy thing to do. I quit once for a whole year and went back to sucking on those coffin nails, I quit for four months once and went back but the third time I quit smoking I prayed to God, in the name of Jesus, to help me quit smoking and I went cold turkey and never lit up another cigarette! Praise God. I knew that I had to have something bigger than myself to help me stop smoking (I tried twice before and failed) so I asked God to let me suffer what I had to suffer to quit and that I was willing to go through that suffering only I asked God to give me the endurance to get through it so I give God the credit because I am weak and God gave me the endurance and I never smoked another cigarette and no, it wasn't easy but I really, really, wanted to quit and God did give me the endurance and strength to quit even with a guy at work blowing smoke in my face! I do the same with food, going by a McDonald's smells so good but hey, no, I quit McDonald's and Arby's and DQ, just like I quit smoking 30 some years ago - with God's help so if I can do that, anyone can do that which includes you my dear Anne. Have a great Lord's Day Sunday - Tom

Hi Anne
Thank you for your kind messages, Anne.
You enlarged the graphic and you saw full detail of the image, yes the message of the world peace. I explained: WE ARE THE WORLD, WE ARE THE CHILDREN OF GOD.

Dear Anne, as you know our world is full of hatred, lust and violence. The killings occur every where. We need to love one another as Jesus loves us. We need to live the lives with peace, love and harmony... It is so impossible, but I hope and pray for that.

Thank you for your concerning. I totally agree with you about President Obama and his wife.

Best wishes,

RE: Your Messsage to Kathleen kennedy Cavendish
Hello Anne! Thank you so much for sending such a kind message. I'm so glad to see someone else who loves Kathleen as much as I do! She truly has changed my life since I've been a fan of her. Her and I have quite a lot in common. My friends call me Kick because I am such a big fan.

When did you become a Kathleen fan? She is so underrated, I wish more people were interested in her life. I'm happy that you are a fan just like me!

I'm reading the book about her called "Kathleen Kennedy: her Life and times", and it's a really great book! Have you read it?

I'm also a very big fan of her husband, Billy Cavendish. He seemed to be such a sweet guy. Too bad him and Kathleen were married for such a short period of time.

I love your notes on Mr President Reagan. We need a good president like him. I pray for his soul and the world peace.
God bless,
