My little dog Nell then my brother Ron


Nov. 08 '08 I took Nell to the vet, only to find out she had Advanced Lymphoma and enlarged spleen. Then Feb. 9 '09 my brother died. I can't put into words my feelings. Wake every morning crying and it lasts a long time during the day. If there was someone to cry with me it might help, but why should someone else be in the pain I am in?

To Prisilla & Sheila
by: Kristen

It wasn't so difficult when I lost my Father in 1985. I still had so much. But now I can empathize w/you both, as I lost my Mother 3/07; then my precious cat, Anni, 1/08; followed by my older sister 8/08.

Now I am losing my design business to the stalled economy, as well as a significant amount of my savings. I live alone and wonder when the tears will stop so I can figure out what to do. Retirement, once two years away, is now another loss. I feel all done in and miss having energy and enthusiasm for life.

So Priscilla, your tears have company, and Sheila I cannot imagine having your losses so young.
Angel blessings to you both.

Dear Priscilla: Oh, I'm sorry for this, very sorry. I've never had a brother (or sister), & never lost a pet. But at age 16, I lost my Dad, then at 46, lost my Mom, and now, 22 months ago, at 49, I lost my best-friend/husband.

It is truly the most difficult journey of my life. I would love to share with you, if you think it will help, being different loved ones who've gone before me, than yourself.

I can only live one day at a time and recommend the same for others; as, if you think about the future, it only makes things worse.
Let me know.

God Bless & keep you !
