I was always shielded from death as a child
not attending many funerals, wakes or burials.
Even today, I seem to avoid them too. However,
my sponsor explained it to me that going to the
wake if not the funeral, at least you can find closure.
Meaning, i wont have this dread hanging over
my shoulders beating myself up for not saying
goodbye or paying my last respects to them.
I'm so sorry about your close friend. I'm sure
you have many wonderful memories of the 2 of
you have made over the yrs. that you will be able
to reflect upon and bring joy in your heart and a
smile to your face.
As we hear often, time heals all. And it is true.
Yes, this passing is so fresh right now, but each
day you celebrate her life and the friendship
the 2 of you shared, time will heal your heart.
Anyway....we are here for you in SR and anytime
you want to talk about your friend with us, we are
here to listen. Anytime you find it hard to make it
thru the day, we are here for you.
For now, take care of yourself, be kind to yourself
and take each day as it comes allowing the Spirit of
the Light to guide and strengthen you along the
Love, care, understanding and support sent your
