thanks all, once again.



I am so, so grateful to you all.

Your prayers have been a warm blanket to me and my family. Love to you all, threefold...

And we are a determined bunch--so know that we will be as fine as we can be. Not the same. No. Just different. But the love remains constant. Some of you also know my sis--she wanted me to extend her appreciation to you all as well.

You all are very special people. Thank you.

and yes...I think I'll stick around--hope that's okay.

Karen, I am so distraught with this news and find it hard to express my feelings, but in a poem which you will find in your email. When things calm down perhaps you will have a chance to read it, until that time, please accept my sympathies and know that my prayers are with your entire family.
Warm hugs to all
Liz

Witch... my condolences for your loss..and my thoughts for your family...

saying I am sorry at such a time as this seems inadequate. I lost a brother years ago...and have lost a parent as well..and I know the grief that comes with such loss. my heartfelt thoughts are with you and yours..

Serene One...   I can't even begin to imagine what you and your family is feeling right now.  I'm not much for prayer lately, but I'll make an exception for you again

Kare, my dear sweet friend, after reading your poem and replies, I just now came back here to see if I could find out anything about you. I am shocked to read this. I'm so sorry that I haven't checked back here before now.
My prayers are with you and your family in this time.
My heart hugs are with you......

Sending prayers on wings of light
High aloft from fear and fright
Lo! Ahead so bright the pearly gates
Where we all shall meet our future fates

There he stands, cloaked in gold
Among his family and friends of old
Above his head, the hand of God
To you he stops to wink and nod

A last goodbye,
Gestured on high,
On this sad nigh
Release a sigh

errmm, well, something just came over me.

Lady Sof? warm hugs...things "come over me too" now and then, and I'm grateful that you hugged me with your verse.

and gratitude for prayers sent and all those prayers in continue.

May I share something I found today? My brother was a student of theology, and he owned quite an extensive library. Since he and I were "discussion" buddies (putting it nicely now--smile) the family decided that they belonged with me. I found several editions of the Bible (thus far, I counted 12) but I was looking for his "study" bible--the one he that had highlighted and wrote notations in the margin. I found it about an hour ago. Inside the cover I found this scripture written very boldly--and more legible than normal. It was the first thing I saw:

1 Corinthians, 15:55

"OH DEATH, WHERE IS THY STING?
OH GRAVE WHERE IS THY VICTORY?"

It felt like we were talking again--and gave me so much peace.

I just wanted to share that with you all.

He left me quite a present there--one I thought that I should share with you kind people.

I love you guys. sigh.

Karen, I hardly know what to say.  It's often difficult to find the "right thing" to say at a time like this.  Just please know that I am so very, very sorry and that you and your family are in my most heartfelt prayers.

It's been a long time since I've been with Passions as I've been in college. My condolences for serenity.
