Hello.. I just wanted to say losing someone you truly love and adore helps us to realize how easy it is to be here and then gone tomorrow. At least I know my best friend, Makenzie is not suffering in any way! any more! Before she died.. she was in sooo much pain. In her last moments, she tried so hard to keep breathing.. I am sure all she could think about was to try and stay alive for her two young girls who stood nearby and watched her die. It brings me some comfort to know that shes not aware of those sad feelings she had before she died.. When she wakes from this "deep sleep" she will find out that we took care of her babies.. and everything is ok now. God is so loving and kind!! I cant wait to see and hear my best friend again... What about you.. what thoughts help you to surpress the pain??
