Time To Say Goodbye

Anna Nicole Smith Died Today at 39

She made me laugh and we only knew each other slightly, but she could be funny and caring and real. More then associations but not what I would call a close friend. But I knew her and we ran into each other every so often at the Playboy Mansion, and it always left me with a smile.

We met several months before her Playboy's Playmate of the Year luncheon in 1993 at the Playboy Mansion. And would see each other every so often at other parties that were thrown there. Her life moved on, a lot of things happened in her life to her and because of her. But one thing I do know is the part of life that I knew personally I am fine with and am glad I got to meet and know her in a small way. It was a positive relationship and she will be remembered.

She was many things to many people and her life was lived to survivie. She always wanted to find her father and used to search phone books for him. One day she did find him years later.

Something she said once that describes her very well in a part of her life that was the most important thing......

"The Marlboro man. I just love cowboys. I love all kinds of men. But they've got to love my son, because we come as a package." Anna Nicole Smith.

Goodbye Vickie Lynn thank you for the laughter.

It sounds like you got to know a side of Anna Nicole that the public rarely got to see and the media chose to never focus on.

I'm sorry for the loss of your friend.

This is very sad, WT,and I'm surprised I feel this way. I'm glad you posted on this.

So often in the media, we're reading about what has been reported about Anna Nicole. She was a HUMAN BEING and I'm so happy that you are putting a human face, a human side to who she was, Chrissie. She may not have had a life that you or I would have chose, likely made many mistakes and had addiction along the way, but in the end game, she was a daughter and a mother and a sister. Thanks for letting us know who she really was.

Thank you for posting this Chrissie. She had a sweetness inside her & love for her son that unfortunatley will get clouded in the media. You two were fortunate to have crossed paths in life.

Jack I agree, I hate drugs. I can't pat myself on the back about them though, because I never even had a desire to use them. Thank God.

Janette thank you so much. It means a lot to me for you to be here.

Rhod, thank you for what you said.

Thank you.

Merri thank you for coming by. Yes she was a real person, not just what the media says but more. Your right Anna and I were different in many ways, took different roads in our lives. People touch our lives in so many ways and we never know how we will remember them.

Greta thank you so much. She loved her son so much and her baby girl too. My prayers are for her precious innocent baby girl.

i agree with Rhod it is very sad. This is what the media can not do is put a human face on her, to them, she was just an item to be used and then cast aside like yesterdays newspaper when the story is finished.

Today, now that she is dead they are still using her. She seemed to be a person in search of something and never really getting to grasp it and hold it, it was always just out of reach, but she kept trying. What ever she had gained seems like there was always someone trying to take it away from her.

Now that she is gone they can't hurt her anymore, may she rest in peace.

I don't follow pop culture much, but she always seemed to me to be very unhappy. I never thought about it as searching, but I think that's what it was.

But how nice to read here about a side of her that was happy. :)

I am sorry for the loss of your friend.
It is always a tragedy when it happens
in the way that it did.
She seemed so alone and lost and I wanted
so badly to reach out and let her know that
we all cared for her.
She was a natural born showbiz girl with a big heart and a kind and wonderful nature. (from what I could tell from watching her on tv--it was there.)
I pray that Dani Lynn will learn of her mother's gentle ways and that she loved her very, very much.
I am very sorry for her passing.

Mark thank you and I agree, she can't be hurt anymore. They sure will try. I just pray for her baby daughter.

Hi FBL nice to meet you. Thanks for commenting.

Lynn, you and I are more alike as how we think on things. Our friendship that is growing is special, I like it very much.

Anna needed to know even though she is gone now that she will be remembered for the good moments in her life even if from a person that was not as close to her as her close friends.

Lynn thank you for being the person you are, you are very special and I am honored to have met you online like this.
