Where will I get
my sugar fix
Uncle Tommy's gone?
to last me
the whole day long.
Oh, how I will miss
that we shared.
Warm Snicker bars
in my hand.
A candy jar of
Most the times when Mom and I would go visit Tom it was spur of the moment. We would be out running errands and would swing by. It would never fail that no sooner we would enter we would be offered something to eat or drink. One thing that was always on hand were Honey Buns , doughnuts or cookies. Since I had given up eating anything that was made from flour about two years ago about the only thing I would go for is the candy jar, sadly to say .
I could make a meal out of Toms confectionery delights. It became a joke that I was in need of a sugar fix and he was my supplier. Yes I am a sugar-holic. I have even passed it on to Haddie Kacy sent this to me the other day I could not help but giggle.
"Haddie, what do you want for breakfast? Waffles or cereal?
No mommy, these. (rice crispy treats)
Hadley those are sugar treats, not for breakfast.
But I wike sugar! When my gwanma comes ober, I will eat wots and wots of sugar!
And with the passing of Tom about the only three good things I can think about is that he has been reunited with everyone that has gone on before him and he is free from his pain and maybe just maybe my waistline might shrink .
