In I don't wanna go home
May 26, 2021
Hi everyone, I‘m just going to copy and paste what I put on the Lake yesterday (let’s hope it works) rachelharms Posted 20 hours ago Hi everyone I’m sorry I haven’t been on to say much lately, I’ve really been finding it hard to deal with this and everything and I just don’t know how to cope with it at all, to be honest. I’ve came on here today though, because I wanted to let you all know something special. I had an email from Ray, which I opened on my break at work today. He decided to drive down to Asbury today, and look what he found! To our complete surprise, since we hadn’t actually heard that the plaque was ready or being installed. But he went, and there it was. What are the chances, that it was waiting there for him? I’m so SO happy he got to see it. But I just can’t believe it. I cannot believe it at all. I can’t believe our beautiful Marsha has her very own spot on the Asbury Park boardwalk, facing the ocean. Her favourite place in the whole world. That was my dream location for the bench too, they did ask where we would like it, although there were no guarantees.. but there it is. Everything I had hoped for, for her and for all of those who knew and loved her. I just can’t believe we made this happen for her and I’m so glad that we did. As soon as I saw the email, I burst into tears and I haven’t stopped crying since. I just can’t stop at all. This was everything she deserved. You can finally see what Ray decided to have written on the plaque, which I think is beautiful. The fact that he chose to include me in there just means everything to me, although I did tell him that he didn’t need to include me, he insisted. I can’t even explain how much it means to have me and Marsha’s name there, permanently in Asbury Park. I’m just so emotional and there’s so much I want to say but it’s so fresh right now and I can’t stop crying. I just want to thank each and every one of you for all of your kindness, your generosity, your support and also to Greasy Lake/it’s past and current members for providing me with a place that has always felt like a home, without which I wouldn’t be where I am now and would never have known Marsha or spent the time with her that I did. I really really wish that I could send all of you who contributed a personal thank you, but PayPal obviously doesn’t provide me with details. But please know, I am so truly grateful. I’ll never be able to put into words what it’s meant to me to have received such kindness and generosity from you all. Thank you so so much. I really hope that you are as pleased with the memorial bench as I am, and I can’t wait until I can travel so I can see it myself and spend some time there. I look forward to seeing you all visiting it, and hopefully sometime soon when I’m allowed to fly, we can all meet up and get a photo together and maybe even a Wonder Burger. thank you again so so much.. I’m just so lost for words right now, and I can’t believe that she finally has her own spot on the boardwalk
