Heaven's Light just got a little bit brighter.

Robert is once again in the arms
of his loved ones who have gone
before him, with God, and the angels.

God speed, Robert!

Karilea, I am wrapping you in love.

Love, Peace, and Eternal Light,

Candle

Karilea,
I can only imagine the pain of your loss. I am so sorry. I pray that each of you find the strenth and courage to carry on. But mostly I pray you experience peace.


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

Thank you, Nancy, for this most thoughtful post.

Time will ease, but not easily.  Hugs and much love, Ken

I felt like I knew him.

My brother would have been overwhelmed. He read many of your works, he came back to me and told me that I found my "niche" in your friendships. He realized a great number of talented poets, and enjoyed so many of you, and your interactions with him.

Over the first 24 hours, there was some allowance of numbness. He had looked forward to returning to his stepdaughter and granddaughter.  As I struggle with my own selfish thoughts, knowing that over the past year, I did pray for peace to come to him, and that he experience no more pain, the fullness of our relationship is what I need to center on, to somehow cross this void he's managed to leave in my soul.

You would all be pleased to know, I think, that his voice pushed me up and out of bed this morning, early. I have read your wonderful emails, and thank you for your love and thoughtful words. You are all exceptional writers, knowing what to say, allowing me to be me.

Robert is in his element now, and is in a place where he can nag me a lot, and for once, I cannot talk back to him, and hear his teasing chuckle that he's one-upped his sis.

Thank you all for allowing the musician to play his songs for you.

Love,

K

Within your souls you will always be connected and your dear brother's songs will resound in your heart forever.
May the awareness of this truth be of comfort to you and to your family.

To all of the members who have known such love, such loss, and then experienced fate...

I have a story to share with you.

I can feel Robert nudging me to tell it a little faster, please.

My brother left us on Sunday, February 5.  On February 6, my husband came across a co-worker's lab puppies for sale.  She had brought two to work.  One male, one female.  The female was shy, and retiring.  The male was all pup, lanky, loopy, loping, and full of love.  [I'm sure the female was, too, but she was just...shy....]

CJ came home talking of this puppy....he was overwhelmed by it.  This is a bit out of the ordinary...especially for a registered dog. We are prone to mutts, thank you.

Our own beautiful and beloved Abby is getting old...and I knew exactly what my husband didn't tell me - he's preparing for her exit, with someone to be left behind, to hug, and hold, and take in the sobs of loss.  There has been so much loss lately...

but what CJ, my husband, didn't figure on, was some things outside the realm of real.

The papers show that this dog was born on 11-25 of last year.  My brother's birthday.

You already know about the lanky, loping, loopiness of a 3 month old pup...much like my brother in his growing up years.

Did I mention the pup is a blond Lab?  A "tow-head"...like my brother?

And that...if we needed one more check of "reality"...that it was less than 24 hours from my brother's passing to CJ's putting his eyes on this dog for the first time?

My brother loved it when I had to clean up his messes.  Guess what?  

The need for constant attention?  Robert adored it.  Yep...that too.

"What about Abby?" someone is asking.  Well, Abby is being the Grand Dame.  To give her the credit for her 12 years here, and 10 with us...she is accepting this younger dog...and will probably even teach him how to hold his leg just so.

Over the course of this week, when just seven days ago I wrote to my brother to tell him I would check in with him on Sunday, only to come home to his email, "can't wait to talk to you Sis!  I'm really doing good!  Have fun, and hurry home....Love, your brudder..."

I often wondered if he rhymed "brudder" with Scudder - he loved peanut butter so much....

Ah, for the young crowd, that's Laura Scudder's Peanut Butter - we had to buy 3# jars weekly.  That was Robert's dessert after a two-helping meal...

Poets...do me this one thing, if you wish.

Come back on this coming Sunday...leave a balloon note that will lift itself to Robert, and light a candle of love.  Down the road, there will be a day for me to go to his Memorial Service, when his family will know it is the right time, when they decide to let go.

I prayed to God some months ago to take my brother outside of his pain.  Yet I held and held to his love and my needs of him, our late getting back together, finding one another before just this moment.

I love him so very much.  He will never be so far away that I cannot touch him in my heart, nor in my dreams.  Some people think that we should just leave the dead alone.  I'm sorry.  I don't think that way.  I revel in memories...and in making new ones, every day.

My thanks and love to all of you...turn on your own heart light...take only the good from what once was, and turn the shine of it upon the world.

My love to you all.

Sunshine

It looks like the puppy was the gift of your "brudder", dear Karilea, to be able to pause in joy in between the attacks of pain for his loss.

((((((((Karilea)))))))

With you now and tomorrow in thought and love.

That puppy sounds like 'just what the doctor ordered' to bring forth all these wonderful memories of dear Robert.  I know there'll be hard days, but the beauty that grew over the years will ease the pain.  Thanks for sharing this with us, K.

God bless.

((((((warm hugs)))))))
