Another Death

Posted by Necee on 6/05/02 at 16:46 (086403)

We have another funeral to attend this week. Our dear sweet friend, who is also a neighbor at our farm, died yesterday. The family is taking it very hard and so I ask for your prayers.

Necee,

I'm so sorry to hear that. In some ways losing a dear friend and neighbor, who you may have seen about every week, can be just as hard as losing someone from your own FAMILY... You are in my thoughts, too.

My prayers are with you. I lost an aunt and my grandfather last week. My aunt was sort of the spare mom you knew you could go to in a time of need. At least Gramps went out on plan 'A' at 97. Somehow I seem to have an added capacity for sympathy after a period of reflection.

God bless you and those sharing your greif

Thanks friends for your outpouring of love and concern....I was amazed when I got home and read your wonderful messages. When I posted my message, I was just an emotional mess and I just needed to reach out to someone...what better place than right here.

I'm so tired of all these funerals, I don't understand but I do know that God does....he's in control. I have been to 6 funerals in the last 2 years...3 of those were family members and the other 3 were very close dear friends.

As life goes on we will always have those precious memories.
Thanks friends for lending an ear.

Dear Necee,

I have just now seen your post, and I, too, want to send my condolences your way and let you know you will be in my prayers as well. It seems there are 'seasons' of loss; at least that is the way it has seemed to me in my life. There are times when you feel as if you are just picking yourself up after one loss before you are confronted with another. At those times, I like to remember that 'Footprints in the Sand' poem. Do you know the one I am talking about? At the roughest times in life, there is just the one set of footprints as the Lord is carrying you.

God bless you,
Suzanne :-)

Necee,
I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your friend. I lost my Dad 13 years ago and I still miss him terribly. I still am blessed with my Mom who is 84. At middle age myself, I have now begun to lose other family and friends - some of whom were my high school classmates - and they have died way too young.
My heartfelt prayers go out to your friend's family, and to you and your family in this time of great sorrow. Missy B.

Necee,

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. I went through a period of about ten years when many of my family died, and since I was the person in charge of arrangements, I came to be considered an authority on who to call, what to do, etc. Friends who'd experienced a loss called me to ask what they should do next. I got to a point where I thought I should set up some sort of a business or something.

It's never easy and one can only take solace in the fact that, over time, the pain becomes less. It's the firsts that are so hard; you know, first Christmas, first brithday, etc.

You're in my thoughts and prayers.
