Miss Carol
lipskip lipskip is offline 11-03-2014, 12:12 AM

Miss Carol S., a good friend of mine's Mom, died on Tuesday, Oct. 28th after a long fight with heart disease and cancer.

A really cool lady. She put up with more out of us than she should have. She wouldn't have the vast majority of my buddy's friends in the house that he ran the streets with, but she never turned me away once. When my buddy ran out and became the heroin addict he always wanted to be, she knew I didn't have anything to do with it, and welcomed me into her home once he got straightened out even though she wouldn't tolerate anyone else from his time on the street. Don't get me wrong, me and my buddy PARTIED, but his fascination with heroin and the lifestyle surrounding it was not for me. If I was over for a visit she always asked me to stay for dinner, which my buddy says was non-existant for anyone else. She used to hear the stories about me and called me 'a mean S.O.B.' Actually, that was sort of her nickname for me. I'd knock on the door and she'd answer and greet me with, "Oh, it's Ivan, the mean S.O.B.! Can you stay for dinner? We're having spetzel!" Lol! She made the best spetzel (sp?). Homemade. I think she gave me the nickname after she heard about me taking up for my buddy one night while we were out drinking and this big dude started fucking with him. Turned out my buddy HAD sort of fucked the guy over, but I didn't know that at the time. All I knew was that he was about 6'4", and some sort of dojo show pony. So I cracked him in his face and sent him ass over tin cups, and he gets up screaming about how he's a black belt. So I cracked him in his face again and this time he didn't get up screaming anything. Actually, he didn't get right up the second time. Felt kinda bad once I heard the whole story, but my buddy was about 120lbs. soaking wet, and this dude was over 200lbs. easy. Big dude. All mouth though. I saw him on the street a couple of years later and apologized, and he was pretty cool about it. Turned out he was a pretty nice guy and Miss Carol liked him too, that's why she called me a mean S.O.B. for fucking him up. She probably knew her son had fucked him over somehow. She was pretty savvy. She knew what we were up to when we went out for days at a time. But she also knew I wasn't out doing heroin with her son too. I was pretty clear about my thoughts on that.

But anyway, Miss Carol was a really cool lady. I sat and talked to her a lot when her son wasn't there. She was widowed about 30 years ago, and whatever 'afterlife' might exist, I hope they're together. She never really got over ****'s Dad dying. And above all else, I'm glad **** got his shit together, got off the smack, and finished his degree before she died. She was finally able to be proud of him and I'd have hated it if she'd have died while he was MIA. **** also gave her a beautiful granddaughter that she doted on constantly. ***** is a bit of a wild child, but a ranked amateur compared to her Dad. Lol! She's gonna be fine, and I'm sure Miss Carol died knowing that too.

Take care Miss Carol. You were very good to me and I'll never forget you.

No more pain.

Travel well ma'am.

-Ivan

What a heartfelt, real, eulogy. I'm glad for you Lippy, having her in your life...and, so, I'm truly sorry for your loss.

Thanks man. I'm good. I don't really grieve like other people. I tend to dwell on the good memories.

I haven't been very close with my buddy for a while. I'm just hoping he's not going to find his way back onto the smack over this. He's sort of a 'fragile' guy. Extremely gifted musician. Now he's going to have a shitload of money coming his way, a nice home that's paid off, and no one to keep him grounded like his Mom did.

I can't say I'm optimistic. He's been on methadone for about 10 years now. Now he's got grief AND money. Bad combination. And he's not the kind of person anyone except his Mom can talk out of doing stupid shit.

Very cool words for her. We should all be so lucky to have someone remember us in this way. Sorry for the loss.

RIP Miss Carol.

PS:When I saw this at first I was like WTF? Our family knew a "Miss Carol"...she was listed that way in my Ma's phone numbers ledger. Our neighbor in late 60's was Sam Andrew (BBHC/Joplin) and Miss Carol was his lady. But Miss Carol was always on my Ma's phone numbers list for years and years afterward. Only knew her by "Miss Carol" so your thread title threw me.

cheers bud.
