    thank you all dear friends

    i am so happy he is out of suffering, he had a rather difficult time only for two weeks and intense pain
    for around 13 hours towards the end

    he walked to the hospital and was conversing with visitors till then.

    i attribute that to all the prayers of our friends...thank you

    however i dare not contemplate the road ahead...right now without him...

    it is just too painful...just too frightening..

    wind ..me too about going to the Source. sigh


    god bless

    Spring, sorry for your loss....I have a wonderful poem and I've posted it here over the years and if I get some energy I'll repost it here.....in essence it says **Miss Me, But Let Me Go**.... I'm sure you have wonderful memories with your brother and he would not want you to fall apart....life goes on.. Celebrate his life and celebrate your life. jam xox

    Oh here it is online:

    Miss MeBut Let Me Go! Edgar A. Guest. When I come to the end of the road. And the sun has set for me. I want no rites in a gloom-filled room. Why cry for a soul ...

    (((Springwater))) I am very sorry to hear about your brother. I lost my sister a month before Christmas of last year to complications from cancer. It was the hardest thing I have ever had to go through as you must be feeling right now. Remember all of the goods times with your beloved brother - those are the memories that will help you get through your grief over the coming months.

    Tiger, joan, thank you for you kind words

    joan -my brther and your sister are at peace now

    tiger - even i ws like that, i cant quite take it in..he was the lively one, who didnt even want to go
    and here we are, me - the somber one, who didnt really care, living and he, the proactive one,
    gone.

    God bless

    Keeping you and yours in my prayers, Springwater.

    I read your updates on The Porch thread on Chit Chat and pray.

    Keep talking it out here too if you're up to it.

    my relationship with my brother was a complex one..he was helpful as well as causing me
    great distress...but we shared so much...he was the more active and into life of the two of
    us...he sort of lived every moment whereas i withdrew from life into an abstract world of
    dreams when i found the going tough...

    patti - your message and understanding is so sweet..i lost so many loved ones over the years
    parents, friends, relatives, pets...and i think i ought to hv developed a desensitization...

    but no, every farewell has left its mark..dont know whether i should feel thankful i
    can still feel or feel sorry i havent become a robot with dead metal for a heart


    thank you both for writing

    god bless

    Hi Springwater, I have thought of you so much over the past few days. I was reading your response to Patti just now, and I certainly understand about complex relationships.

    For me, as much as it hurt to lose my mama almost two years ago, our relationship was not always the best. However, I am glad I am able to still feel the pain...because then I am also able to still feel the love...

    You continue to be in my prayers, dear one...
