My mother passed away on Sunday in a car accident and while there are few words that can be expressed from my mouth, many emotions are flowing heavily.

I let go of my religion a very long time ago and have no real desire to regain a spiritual path that is doctrined in such a fashion but my father is still involved in his faith. I haven't been around but I was wondering if you guys would be able to include him in your prayers? She was his soul mate of 33 years and he's taking it quite hard, naturally, and needs something more than what I and my brothers can currently give him.

We are all taking this terribly and the funeral is on Saturday morning. Any sort of thoughts or prayers for my father and my three brothers are very much appreciated.

She was a bloody good woman and didn't deserve to die this young. But, like Billy Joel said, only the good die young.

Elizabeth, I will hold your family in my prayers.  I am so sorry for the loss that you are all experiencing.  That your Father feels a prayer's answer is all we can hope for.

Hugs, Karilea

Elizabeth,
How tragic for all of you. You are all in my prayers. I pray for peace, courage and hope. And I still say...

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

May I offer my deepest thoughts of sorrow and comfort to you?  There are few losses greater than that of a parent.

I shall keep your Father, and you, in my prayers.  

Thank you.

Peace is the only battle worth waging.

That's terrible news, Elizabeth. I can't imagine what you and your family are going through. But you will all be in my prayers. Please let your father know we are thinking of him.

It's awful to even imagine such a thing. I am so sorry, I'll pray for you and your family. My little ICQ flower and email are up there, I'm always ready to listen.

Oh, make me Thine forever
And should I fainting be
Lord, let me never ever
Outlive my love for Thee

oh, how sad. I am so sorry, Elizabeth.
I like what you said about her being a good woman. That's the memory to hold onto forever.

Thanks everyone for your kind words and thoughts. My father is appreciative of what you're doing, as am I.

Tomorrow we're going to the funeral home to view her body and to say a final goodbye. I don't know how i'm going to handle it as today, being that it is my birthday, was bad enough. The funeral is on Saturday and my brother and I are delivering the Eulogy so that should be interesting in itself.  

I'm waiting for the pain to go away so that this shambles of a life can be mended somehow.

Once again, thanks for everything.

Elizabeth

I'm not being rude. You're just insignificant.

Elizabeth please know that what you can give your Dad right now is a gift, and one he needs, for you are an extension of him and his soulmate.  My prayers to you all at this time, and may she rest in peace.
