This might be a rough time for many of you. Do what you feel you need to do to get through it. Remember, someone is here almost all the time to talk to you.

Deborah, that really sucks . I don,t understand why some people have to bear such pain. I am sorry.
Chicago....I'm sorry for the loss of your friend. It's never easy to lose someone we connect with. I'm glad you gave her husband this site's information. He'll need as much support as he can get.
Debbie......I'm sorry for your friend's loss. She's lucky to have you as most of us don't have anyone close by that can actually relate to this loss. When she's ready, you two can talk and hopefully she'll take comfort knowing you can understand. It won't be easy for you but it may help you as well.
Here is another good one from Maya Angelou
Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.
Thank you Marsha, thank you David,
I too believe that we will all be together some day.
I believe it too, Marsha. The death of a loved one is going home, and we are left to deal with the heartache, but we will meet when it is our time - beautifully said.
How beautiful, Steve.
Steve .... I really enjoyed that and Maya Angelou was one of my favorites. Another great lady that has passed on and left her good works for all of us.
I look at death of a loved one as 'going home.' The stinger is, that we are yet here as earthly beings dealing with the heartache. I also believe we will meet one day when it's our time.
Love & Hugs
I may have posted this before so please forgive me for repeating. I find that it is comforting and haunting at the same time...much how I feel most days
“When I think of death, and of late the idea has come with alarming frequency, I seem at peace with the idea that a day will dawn when I will no longer be among those living in the valley of strange humors.I can accept the idea of my own demise but I am unable to accept the death of anyone else. I find it impossible to let a friend or relative go into that country of no return.Disbelief becomes my close companion, and anger follows in its wake. I answer the heroic question ‘Death, where is thy sting?’ with ‘it is here in my heart and mind and memories’.”

Chicago Beard ... I am so sorry to hear you lost a good friend today. It never gets easy and we are at the age where it's going to happen more often. I have 2 girlfriends who have serious health issues and it's touch and go. I hope your friend does come to this site to feel more like he is not alone. This site kept me going when I was going to give up and I've never forgotten all the help I received. It made me feel less alone in my grief.
