A dear friend of ours passed away last week. It had saddened my heart. What an amazing lady she was and still is. She will be missed by so many, especially her sweet husband, kids and dear grandchildren. Like everyone else, you ask yourself what can I do? Realizing that there are soooo many friends that asking this too and yet all the family have asked for is their privacy. Through church, the other families in their ward... have taken care of needs while all the family is in town.

Last night when Jeff and I were talking about what we could do, he reminded me of one of my favorite books about grief and loss called ..Tear Soup: A Recipe for Healing After Loss
by Pat Schwiebert and Chuck DeKlyen.I had loaned the last one out and don't know where it I just forgot about it. We decided to go pick one up at the book store for their family. Then tonight I made some tissue holders, for her kids or grandkids. Wish I could have done more, I just didn't know what to do and thought that tissues would come in handy. I dropped the stuff of to some of their other family that lives near, and asked if they would give them to the family for tomorrow. I cried on my way home. 

Just imaging what their family is going through, made me sad. Loss is hard. My prayers and thoughts go out for them and everyone who has to go through such loss and heartache in their lives. May we all pray to know what we can do... to help others in their time of need
Good Night dear friends!
