While I was in South Carolina enjoying the arrival of my first grandson, Nolan Bryce Corbett, born on August 6, 2004 and having an exciting time being a new Grandma, I received an unexpected call on the 16th of August, just 5 years ago this past Sunday, from my sister, Maureen, telling me I needed to return to Rhode Island immediately.
I said to her,
"Why do I need to return now when Mom's birthday party isn't until the 25th, and all the plans are all set. I plan on staying here until the 20th and then returning. Why do you need me now?"
She shocked me by saying,
"I need you here now, not for planning her birthday party but for planning her funeral."
I was in a stage of emotional shock and just could not believe what I was hearing and what was happening at the moment.
What an emotional roller coaster I felt I was on, excited, thrilled and filled with joy for the birth and arrival of our newest first member of the Corbett family and at the same time now so sad and depressed with the death of my best friend, my mother.
In Memory of MY MOTHER

August 16, 2004
Emotional drained and feeling so alone without her I would cry just thinking of her. We did everything together, She lived 20 minutes away in East Providence and everyday we would talk and visit each other at least twice a week if not more frequently. We shopped together, and went out to eat and enjoyed each other'scompany. In order to cope with this sadness, my first born son suggested that I use my artistic talents and the stockpiling of Avon I had accumulated over 30 plus years and that I should learn to sell on EBay. I needed to pass my time with something personal so I said I would give it a try.
I registered on EBay August 14. 2005 and learned from mentoring groups html and how to list items for sale. I have an EBay store named, Kathleens Avon Boutique and more. My Ebay World has become a passion of mine, getting to know people that become my friends all over the world is exciting. I sell internationally to many countries , to name a few: New Zealand, Ireland, Great Britain, Canada, China, Germany, United Kingdom, Australia.
After several months I built my ME page on EBayand dedicated it to my mother, who is always on my mind. When I visit my store each day I take a moment to see her smiling face and say a prayer that she is happy to be in heaven with my dad and her Mom and Dad and her sister and brothers. Someday I, too, will join them
