Well this upcoming week I have to go to Pat's Memorial Service and pay respects to the family at the local funeral home. I can't get this out of my head. I don't know what to say to her husband. I hurt so bad I can't hardly stand it. What do you do when there's a void so big you could drive a truck through it?????

I think you just said it, Jabber. The heart-felt emotion in your last two sentences is genuine and the family will understand it.

I'm so sorry you have a funeral to attend. I know Pat was a true friend to you and there's a feeling that your heart has been ripped apart. All you can do is honor the feeling and be there for her family.

Anne,
Thank you. Thank you enough for replying to my wimpy weakness.
I know everybody goes through this. And I've certainly have enough of it lately. Like many of you, I've been through a lot in my life; but this the worse, of the worse. Pat was the sweetest person I've ever known. And thanks for the prayers all of you prayed while she was so sick these past 8 and 1/2 months.

It's not wimpy weakness, Jabber. It's the price we pay for being human and having the ability to love and feel compassion. It's what makes you the wonderful woman that you are. And there is no need to apologize for it. Sending you strength and love.

Went to Pat's memorial service today and I feel like I had the
wind knocked out of me. I'm sure all of you have felt like this at one time or another. But God is good! And I'll bounce back, like I know I should.

Thank you Anne. I need all the prayers I can get; true, blue friends don't come along everyday. She believed in me. She had faith in me. She loved me. And the feelings were mutual!
