She's gone. 8:20 this morning, with her husband and son by her side.

My teacher Mary Hill used to say
"You don't know how many times we have laid down our bodies
and risen up, laughing."

I hope so.

Sue - Sisters are terrific. Death sucks. I'm so glad you were able to see her before she went on her next journey. Don't be strong. Wallow in your grief, but remember her life, her smile, her laugh. It doesn't get easier, it just gets different. From one who knows...
Hugs,
Beth

Oh Sue, no no no. I'm at a loss as to how to say I'm sorry strongly enough. If there is anything I can do, anything at all, please ask.

Suebob I have prayed for you every single day since this terrible "time inbetween" started. I will continue to do so in hopes that you will have the strength to go on and the ability to blend the sad with the glad. I just lost my brother and it is a debilitating time but through the tears and utter grief comes an occasional fond memory that brings a smile. God bless you and your family. Jane

Sending all my love, dear. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.

Day Dreamer said...

I'm so very sorry. I've never felt what it feels like to lose a sister. I have two sisters and I don't even want to imagine. When my father died the only story that helped me get through was to imagine him on a ship. For all that are sad to see her go here on this shore...there are that many or more happily greeting her on the other side of the horizen. Prayers from my heart to yours.

Major Bedhead said...

Mir said...

Oh Suebob, I'm heartbroken to come back and see this. Even if we believe in an After that is, no doubt, far superior for HER, it's still so hard to be left behind. My deepest condolences to you and the rest of your family. Wishing you peace and grace to get through this time.

chris said...
