All my Girls are gone....

by Freddie Lynn

August 2012. A month I was so glad to put behind me. On August 12th my very best friend for over 35 years died of cancer. I was there with her in her last minutes assuring her that it was okay to stop fighting but still so surprised when that last breathe actually came. On August 17th I went to see my Mama so she could help me handle the pain I had in my heart, so Mama could make it easier like she always did. I ended up taking my Mama to the hospital that night where her heart finally got too tired and just couldn't beat another time. I watched her go away too, I'll always remember the look in her eyes. On August 23rd, while still at Mama's house taking care of what had to be done there my constant companion of 11 years, my shih tzu Millie who also had cancer woke up in so much pain she just couldn't stand up. I had promised Millie that when she started having pain I would make it stop. Again I was there when her last breathe was gone. My heart is so broken now I can't imagine how it can ever heal.

My sympathies go out to you and I pray for your healing from the grief of loosing so many nurturing loved ones in such a short time.
I pray in time you will find love again.

I'm so sorry Friddie, no one should have to deal with losing some many love ones so quickly.
