To all of you people who have been beside me ver the last 4 months I want t say thank you. Your prayers and thoughts were with me all the way. I lost my mum through Asbetos cancer less than a week ago and am in mourning for person who was my rock and guiding star. She was surrounded by her family and the children from her class. It's amazing that she nly finished school only 5 days ago. On the day she died dad ended up in hspital and could not be with us at the Marae (place that you take the departed and mourn your loss and grieve), So dad was brought to the marae once a day for an hour. The night before he was able to stay the night. Hwever after the burial he was taken back to hospital with hypothermia. We thought that we may loose dad and still do. He is managing to stay in oour wrld but wants to be with mum. They had been married 54 years and together longer than that. So nw Im going through the stages of grief. If I'm not arround its because Im taking care of myself. Mum's 2nd cancer took her in 5 weeks s I'm still in shock. So to everyone n Spark including the coaches etc please be kind to me so if I don't get on as much as I should it's because it's hard to get on the computer. My love to you all and a special shout out to the DR WHO team. I will be back to all my teams soon. Again loves, prayers, blessings etc to you all.
Time slowly heals all; Not a day goes by that I don't think of my own mum who passed almost 8 years ago. In the fullness of time, the emptiness and ache will give way to bright light of love and fond memories.
Every so often, I still reach for the phone to call her though. It is at those moments I pause and pray for her, as I see it as a prayer request from beyond.
Sorry to hear about your loss...Please remember--All of us Sparkies are here for you if you need someone to someone!
Both of my parents died a couple of years ago and I remember someone telling me that time would heal the way I was feeling. Of course I didn't believe them, but you know what? It has. I hope the same for you 3178 days ago
I send my sympathies to you and your loved ones. I am so sorry for your loss. It is hard no matter if it is unexpected (as my dad and younger brother) or a long term illness. My thoughts and prayers are with you as you are grieving. God bless! 3179 days ago
Condolences on your loss. My parents had been married about 56 years when they died (within 6 months of each other). It isn't uncommon for this to happen. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Remember the good times. 3179 days ago
