Here is a poem that has helped me through some hard times of lossDo not stand at my grave and weep I am not there. I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning's hush I am the swift uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry; I am not there. I did not die. by Mary E. Frye May this help comfort you as it has me.
My prayers and deepest condolences are with you as you mourn the loss of your dear friend.

You have my sympathies. I'm so sorry for your loss.
My thoughts are with you, Rhonda. I hope this verse brings comfort. When I read this I always feel close to my dad: Death is nothing at allI have only slipped away into the next roomWhatever we were to each, that we are still.Call me by my old familiar name.Speak to me in the easy way which you always used.Laugh as we always laughed at thelittle jokes we enjoyed together.Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.Let my name be the household word that it always was. Let it be spoken without effort.Life means all that it ever meant.It is the same as it ever was; there is absolutely unbroken continuity.Why should I be out of your mind because I am out of your sight?I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very nearjust around the corner...all is well.Nothing is past;nothing is lost.One brief moment and all will be as it was before only better, infinitely happier and forever.We will all be one together.(Carmelite Monastery)
So sorry to hear..praying for friends and family.
Dear RhondaYou have been so caring over the past while for your friend. Loving and helping her. She's now at peace. I hope, as you take the time to remember her life and mourn her passing, that you take extra care of yourself. We all understand if you can't post every day and need time out or if you re-post old tutorials to fill in time. It is a gentle life you lead and we will be gentle in return to you. If you need time, take all you want.Love and hugs as we're thinking of you.

so sorry to hear this Rhonda, our thoughts are with you all at this difficult time.
Rhonda, I am so sorry to hear of the death of your friend Bernadette. I realise this is a very painful time for you, I hope you can get some comfort from the Bibles promises for the future & its assurances that for the present Bernadette is 'asleep' in death, she's no longer suffering- Eccl 9:5,John 11:11-14. The Bible also promises that those who have died such as your dear friend will have a future here on the earth- as promised in John 5:28,29, Rev 21:3&4, Acts 24:15. Kind regards, Helen.
I am sorry for your loss and the loss to her family. I pray you would be comforted during this time of sorrow. I am sure Bernadette so enjoyed the time you spent with her, especially in these last days.
