Default The Real Us

Dear Sue
I had to respond to your last post and hearing of your family, many thanks for what you said. Iam Cheryl's Mum Marion we only had the one child and her loss has left us so very empty now.
Dad is Ian 62 years works in the building trade. So many of his workmates have been truly saddened by what has happenend. At the funeral some of these burly and scary lads tried to say what they felt at our loss and many walked away in mid sentence, so much caring. I think Alistair will go back to work soon, he visits Cheryl every day and talks quietly to her when we leave him alone before leaving.The cats Cherlie and Oscar will be my daily task when Alistair returns to work.We did not celebrate the new year as we knew how it would affect us, what a terrible year this has been, I know we will remember this year and the one tragic day till the day we too join Cheryl in heaven. We willl be visiting Cheryl today not our usual Saturday visit but some sort of reason ??? a new year or just to show she is never alone. We will remember Steve today when we light another few candles

Default Looking Beyond The Earthly Plane

Beyond all thought and inner knowing,
Fear, anger, grief, loneliness and pain;
Beyond earthly sight, sound and comprehension
There lies a place where all souls meet again.

A world of warmth, light, love and healing,
From where each soul undertakes its earthly quest,
And returns after many trials and tribulations
To find comfort and healing, blessedness and rest.

Here the answers to all its questions
Are gently shown, with sympathy and grace.
Once again the soul knows its oneness with all life
And that there is no death and that
All worlds and beings will always be
Safely enfolded in God’s loving embrace.

Default Nearly Gone 6 Months

Been quite some time since my last visit. Nothing has changed, Cheryl is missed more and more each day.So many folks pass the usual remark how are you doing, we reply "just taking each day as it comes". No mention from us about the quiet times the tears some little silly reminder, this is how we are doing, looking at the picture in the hall, on the stair and all the memories flooding back. Our visits to see Cheryl on a Saturday, standing wishing it was not real. Then the quiet ""see you next week love" then the guilt of driving away as if we are leaving her alone.Going down to Cheryl's house to tend the cats, looking at every word she wrote, on a callendar on anything to feel near her again. We go through the days just doing what everyone does but every waking moment Cheryl is there, smiling saying the usual quick funny remark,how we miss everything. The dining table has not been used and Alistair comes in every night and we sit eating at the coffee table afraid to look at the empty chair. No it does not get easier just more sad as the days go on.
