No time to say good-bye!

A distant friend of mine, lost her Mother last week. It was a real surprise because her Mom was just going in for surgery and never survived it. I guess maybe that happens when people are older and have surgery, but still not being able to say good-bye has got to be hard. I on the other hand, had time to say good-bye to my Mom. over and over again for almost 4 months and that was hard also. I am not sure that there is one way to say good-bye that is better than another? The truth is it is just hard. I never really worry about the people who are leaving, it is those of us that are left here that seem to really struggle. I hope she finds peace and comfort  soon. Good night dear friends!

Wherever you are, you
will always be in my heart."  ~ Gandhi

we can never lose...
All that we love deeply
becomes a part of us."  ~ Helen Keller
