Hi all,

My sister-in-law just passed away. I am very sad big time about this, because she fought so hard to live. She passed from breast cancer.

Hi Kasey,
Thank your for your kind words. I did not sleep well last night as I had a really horrible nightmare that shook me to my core and I thought the fear alone would kill me. I don't know if the stress of knowing that my sister in law was passing or what could have caused it, but boy it was the most awful dream. It worries me to even think about it. Oh well.

I'm so sorry, Kathy

May thoughts of peace surround you, may the warmth of family support you...............

And may your dreams be of calmness and happiness tonight.

Gentle hugs to ya Kathy,

I pray that your dreams turn to peaceful ones.

When my mother passed away I spent days afraid to go to sleep. (I was 27 yrs old at the time)

Finally I started to go back to a normal sleeping pattern. One night I had the most beautiful dream that I was going to "visit" my mom.

She was staying in a little cottage in heaven where folks could have family come for little visits (weird huh?)

She was so excited to see me .. we hugged and she put the kettle on for tea which she always did when I went for visits. ( I hate tea, my sister is the tea drinker :lol: ) So it was just like ol times.

When the visit was over she told me she was always watching and she knew how much I missed her, and that I should know she's never very far away from me.

It left me with such a feeling of peace. I still have those kinds of dreams from time to time. I cheerish them. I hope you can find the peace you need to heal....you and your family.

Hi Kathy,

I am so sorry about you sister-in-law. It is such a frightening time. However, my best friend, and my grandmother have taught me that if I keep my eyes, heart, soul, and mind open.....they will be there.

And they are. I smile each time they send a "hi"......this is what I hope for you....that one day you will smile with your sister/friend, and that it will feel good.

Hugs to you,

Hi All,
Thank you so much for your prayers. It is hard, because she was doing so good and then she just died. It is hard to understand why this happened. I will see her again one day up in heaven.

Hi Cheryl,
I am doing better. I am not going to be able to attend the funeral as my brother lives in NY and I live in South Georgia. I do not have the funds to get up there, plus I am in a bad flare right now and just can not get up there. I sent flowers though and I talked at length with my brother. He is really torn up about it, but he knows that one day we will all be together up yonder. I believe she is in heaven and we will see her again. Thank you and everyone for your kinds words and prayers.

Your welcome Kathy. What helps when you can't get there is lighting a candle when you know the services are going. Say a prayer and what's in your heart to her. It helps you feel a part of the services. My heart goes to you and your family. Sorry for your flare, may it ease as well.
