Final Departure


My father and my grandmother both passed away within the past week. My father would have been 54 years old next month. He is survived his eight children, the youngest of whom is 16 years old.

I will be back in a couple of weeks. Prayers are appreciated.

One can never know what someone is going through during this time and so all we can do is say that we are sorry for your loss. To lose your father and your grandmother so close to each other has to be more than most can bear.

If I could sing the song Amazing Grace then that is what I would leave you with. Somehow that song is always so conforting, although CCR is good too.

Prayers and blessings for you and your family are all we can offer you during these times. May God's angels watch over you all during your time of need.

God bless.

RightKlick, I am so sad to learn of your losses. It is very, very hard on you and your family, I am sure. There is really nothing we can say to make you feel better, except to know that our prayers are with you. I Will Pray for the Souls of your Father and Grandmother, I know they are with our Lord and watching over you and your family. God Bless and take care of yourself.

Right Klik, I've had all my relatives pass away, so I know what you're going through. I take comfort in the thought that they are in Heaven, and happy now, so we shouldn't grieve, but rejoice they are with God and all his Glory, we are the ones left behind, but someday we'll all be together again.

It's not just a shock to relatives but when someone as young as 54 (I'm 55) passes away it is disturbing. My sincerest condolences.

J - During our chat a few days ago you mentioned a hiatus from your site. I had no idea that you were experiencing this, my thoughts, prayers and condolences go out to you.

Jean said...

Sending prayers for strength and guidance through this very difficult time. We each experience death of our loved ones differently, but it is important for you to take care of yourself at this vulnerable time of your life. Your dad was a young man and you had so much life a head of you to share with him, but I am sure he was very proud of you as your writings verify your strength of character. Sorry for the passing of your grandma too. They both will forever be in your heart and soul. God bless you!

Z said...

Your family's in my prayers..
God bless you all.
