Today I attended the funeral of a good friends husband .  She is a member of a club I have been in for over 50 years. We  began by losing spouses.  We have also lost 2 members in the past few years.

I guess when you have been together as long as we have, loss of members or their spouses is bound to happen.

Randy's services will be Saturday, and it is going to be very hard.  He has been part of our family so long that he is like one of our own children. He and our granddaughter, Jessica have always been close.

The hurt is double...losing Randy, and  Jessica's  pain from losing him.  It is hard when you cannot make things better for someone. You just have to let their grief run its course. And pray that she get some healing as time goes on.

God be with us and help us through that day.

JAN 6, 2016 R.I.P. RANDY

We lost Randy this morning around 6:30 a.m.  He has been in Hospice over 2 weeks.  Jessica has only left a couple times for a short period and Jackie was there.  Both have been there most of the time.  Many of his family and friends got to visit him while he was still alert.

Jessica and her Dad were very close. Will take her a long time to do some healing.  When she is able to begin some semblance of her normal life back where she can work and be with her friends it will comfort her. And she can begin to come back, not as before as the loss will always be there. But she is strong and she will be ok.
