Karen, my prayers go out to you and your family. You have endured so much. Know that the prayers of the PiPsters come your way.

hugs and loves, Marti

This popping back up came as quite a surprise to me--I want to thank you all for just enduring with me.

I told Janet Marie that I feel like my life was snapped in half by Katrina. My brother passed away before my sister did, and it will be one year on the 23. It feels, oddly, like twenty.

I apologize for acting strange--the mood swings, the anger, the endless tribute poems to those who have passed on...and yes, Reb, yes Christopher, I even apologize for apologizing too much.

All prayers are gratefully accepted--and I if I have to ask for any special favors from the powers that be, I'd like to die of old age--with laugh lines on my face.

*hugs through tears*

Thanks for remembering me, and hold your loved ones tight--because until we lose them we don't understand how much of them defines us. I feel a bit rudderless, but hey?

I'm stubborn, yanno?

Karen, I didn't read this thread until now. Even though this happened three years ago, I will say a prayer for you and your family for all that you have been through.

I hope someday you get the chance to live like you were dying....

Karen, it pains me that both you and Karilea have each lost a bother and a sister in recent times. I have an emense amount of compassion for what you have both gone through ~ but I also have a tremendous amount of admiration for your indominatable spirits. You have blazed the trail for Karilea's most recent losses. ~ Soul sisters commiserating together and giving support to one another. God bless you both.

With love,
Linda

Amazing that in the midst of all of your losses  ..... you, Karen, my Karen, have lovingly given us a bounty of humanity.

May the universe gift you with peace and all of the laugh lines you deserve.

Don't blame me if everyone starts calling you "prune face."

hugs, Chrislane

Dear Karen:  I'm very lae getting in here but wanted you to know that I regret not being among the first to offer condolences.
I do hope you and your family are recovering from this shock! I read all the messages and was particluarly touched with your finding your brother's study
Bible.  We lost our only grandson, to a reckless driver, a number of years ago and when cleaning out his room, we found Bible messages everywhere. In his books, his drawers, on his desk, in the pockets of his clothes. It was immensely comforting then and still is!

Love
Betty Lou

Adding my condolences to all the others expressed here in your time of grief.  As a parent myself I do expect to go before my children so can imagine how awful this is for your mother.  May she find peace.

I thought you had to go through this today
I hadn't noticed the date
But nevertheless a loss is a loss
So I'm sending my hugs rather late

You had to endure so much my friend
In the one and half year that's gone by
I can hold you close to my heart, but I know
That I'll never be able to answer the 'Why'

Karen, I, like others in this thread, didn't notice the date.  I read through all the messages, struggling to see the words through my tears and gradually realised that this was an old message, and then one of three years.  However, as late as my message is, please accept my tears, prayers and hugs for you and your mother.  I know grief too, and this must have been devastating, even though you are all so strong.

Tears, prayers and hugs

- Owl

You know...there isn't one day goes by that I don't wonder about Serenity, and everyone who was hit by this life changing disaster.  I doubt very much if any one of them will ever live long enough to get over this type of devastation.  The post trauma from a situation like this always seems to get swept under a rug somewhere and not dealt with.

As Karen is my friend - I am SO thankful for all of you!  She needs this kind of love and support for a long, long time.

God/Goddess bless them all - every one!
