I wish I could do something to ease your pain. Just be very gentle with yourself and take all the time you need to heal. There is no time limit on grieving. I'm glad you put up these beautiful photos and I hope you are taking time to get out in your yard and dig - best therapy ever. Love you my friend!


My heart breaks for you friend on your loss. There is just not enough words to say when something like this happens in ones life.It takes time sounds so silly but I guess it is right and everyone has their own way of getting through sorrow. I pray God will ease your pain and hurt.
Your spring garden is looking so beautiful and the Narcissi 'Flower Parade' is gorgeous. Hugs my friend.


I wish there were words to comfort you with. Just know you're not alone. And I hope you grieve all you want, however you need.


Thinking of you and sending healing energies your way! xoxo

Dear Kathleen, thank you for sharing your sadness, alongside the photos of your beautiful blossoms, which truly are a wonderful tribute to your brother. please know I think of you quite often. I will continue in this circumstance. I also think of you because of our "conversations" and exchanges over the years.

It's still hard for me to imagine he is gone. His address and number are still in my phone. His name is still on my prayer list. I can't seem to bring myself to delete either one. I am so glad he said that talking to me made his feel so much better. I'm not sure why but I'm glad God used me to give him a safe place to talk. We used to have LONG phone calls. Sometimes 3 hours! ( I'm thankful for my bluetooth) lol! I will miss those calls. We will put you on our prayer list too.
