I CRY FOR TOMMY... My Second Published Book (as of 3-01-2013)

 Cover on my 2nd published book... I CRY FOR TOMMY
Publication Date:  March 01, 2013
By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee

I did it... I finally got my second book published.  'I CRY FOR 'TOMMY'.  March 01, 2013 is this book's publication date.

This is the timeframe showing when my book is available.  It's available immediately on

1)   immediately available
2)   in 5-7 business days
3) Europe...   in 5-7 business days

It has been very emotional for me, I have been on such a long journey... now, I think I may find peace of mind.  I have found 'my way' to never forget Tommy.

I will be able to rest my weary self, knowing Tommy will never be forgotten.  I will know now, one day my grandson and granddaughter will 'get to know me' by reading my words.

They will never doubt their Granny Gee loved, thought about them.  I love, think of them... always.

It's been a long, hard journey...  I feel like I've just emerged into the sunshine... as if I've been in a deep, dark tunnel.  What an emotional morning it's been... I'm so very tired, and happy.

I remembered all my Blogging Friends in my book.  You all mean the world to me.  Love, Gloria/Granny Gee  :)))

  3. Welcome.Your words make me feel over the moon too.

    By the way,I am busy with my studies.I am really glad that I have the time to stop by and comment.

    Love,Joann.Thanks for replying.I sincerely appreciate.

    1. Joann, I'm very glad you took a few minutes of your time to think of me. That's an honor whenever someone who doesn't know you... to think of you... to let you know. I am honored that you did... that meant a lot to me. I hope you will keep stopping by, I will look for you. :))) Love, Gloria/Granny Gee

    2. To Gloria/Granny Gee:

      Sure,I will stop by.Looking forward to your post is a kind of enjoyment.XDLove,Joann.

  4. Gloria I am so happy for you! I truly hope this helps your healing process. I can't imagine what it is like to lose a child---your only child. I had the honor of knowing Tommy and I think anyone that knew him, misses him. He was a wonderful person, a loving and terrific Dad and loving son. I wish you all the best with your book! Love, Ms. Nancy

    1. Ms Nancy, this book is the pure pain from my very soul for the loss of my child that a person will hold in their hands when reading it.

      They will feel my very heart... they will hold a part of my life in their hands as they read.

      My tear drops that have fallen as I wrote all those words... are now, in the form of that book.

      Tommy will never be forgotten now... now. I'm so thankful... you wouldn't believe the 'drive' in me to 'remember Tommy' always.

      The drive in me to have 'something left behind from me'.... for my grandson, granddaughter to 'find that was Granny Gee', to know my love for them, their father. 'Just something' for them to 'know me'. Why is all that important? I don't know... it's what 'I had to do'.

      Now... when people hold 'I CRY FOR TOMMY' in their hands, they will be holding my tear drops, my grief, my pain from the very
      depths of my soul... in their hands. It's all there in the form of a ... book. It's so much of 'me'.

      I know you knew Tommy, loved Tommy. He thought the world of you, too.. Ms Nancy. He always smiled when I told him that 'Ms Nancy said this... or Ms Nancy did that'.

      Thank you for being there, Ms Nancy. Love, Gloria/Granny Gee :)))

  5. I´m so happy for you!! And Lena are watching over you from her and Håkans gold cloud. Love Anna-Lena

    1. Oh, my friend, Anna-Lena... your words made me sit here smiling, tears began flowing once again onto this old keyboard.

      Thank-you for your special words. You have no idea of how much it means to hear from you, or any of Lena's family in Sweden. It just means the world to me.

      I'm so happy to hear from you, Anna-Lena. I hope you will visit here, on my Facebook often. I would love for you to comment anytime... and talk to me.

      I love that vision in my mind... your words have made that happen.... 'And Lena are watching over you from her and Håkans gold cloud.' That's so special. You touched my very heart. Love,Gloria :)))

    2. I forgot to tell you that Lena is always in my book at the front... and through out as I wrote about my grief for Tommy. My grief was for the loss of my systervan, Lena, too. The pain when she died was more than I can say... Love, Gloria
