Oh my goodness, your post makes me feel so very sad.

I am 39 today. My next birthday is 40. I cannot imagine being in a hospice at the age I am.

I am very sad for you. I think you have said some amazing things about your friend.

I wish you the best
May your friend rest in peace

xxxx

My heart goes out to you and to everyone who loved this woman.
May she rest in peace in the arms of our loving father.
And may all those who loved her find comfort in their memories of her.
Love never dies.

Tuffgirl,

What a great friend she had in you!

This is such a heart-felt cautionary tale for all to hear.

Thank you for sharing this with us. It really means something to us.

I'm thinking of you with affection and admiration.

Be strong in maintaining her forever in your heart.

Peace to you TG.

Today has been a day of sorrow and reflection, but also a time to appreciate life. Yes, she was an alcoholic. Yes, it killed her in the end. But she was also a daughter, sister, mother, friend. Before the disease took hold, she was fun, energetic, successful, and fiercely independent. I am so grateful that I got the chance to tell her that I loved her, one last time. Her influence in my life over the last 25 years has shaped the person I am today.

When I first came here to SR, I didn't have a clue just how powerful and dangerous this disease is. I thought it was easy - just quit drinking - and go on with your life. Today I understand.

Rest in peace now, my friend. And my prayers to all of you out there tonight, fighting the battle of your life. May you learn a lesson from this - and not take your days for granted.
Wow that is horrible. I know that we all like to have some fun in here, but in the end it is life or death.
