This is an excerpt of one of Earth Angel's responses in her poem, "Sweet Sap of Life":

"My parents are in dire straights and I am broken-hearted. Both my parents are in hospital and both are having renal dialysis. Last week my Mom had abdominal surgery and then she had a severe heart attack, stroke, and is now on life support. My Dad is in the room next to her's and he has a broken hip, shoulder, and arm. These are not very happy times but I am trying to stay positive."

Please will Pip's wonderful, miracle prayer chain pray for Earth Angel and her parents in this trying time.  Those of you who don't pray, please hold her in your caring thoughts - I know that helps a lot, as well.

Diana, you are such a gentle and loving soul. When I saw your reply to one of my responses in my poem "Sweet Sap of Life", knowing you as I do, I felt moved to come into Announcements  ~ voila! Your kindness is on full display. Thank you, Wise and Venerable One. Owl 2

I am pasting here, the response I made to your own. ~

Thank you, Diana. My Mom returned to Heaven last evening in my sister's arms and with my Dad holding her hand. She passed in the presence of her two soul mates. Just last week my Mom was a vibrant, articulate, sweet, fun-loving woman full of love and life. Just a few years ago she was hang-gliding and parasailing. She embraced each day and had such a generous spirit ~ full of love and life.
My Mom is gone ~ but her glorious spirit lives on. In some ways, she will be even closer to me now...

I thank you all for your prayers and well-wishes.
My Dad says that he has a broken body, a broken spirit, and a broken heart. He desperately needs your prayers ~ as well as my sister who is a very gentle soul and has lost a son and a daughter. She and Mom were inseparable and this loss is more than she can bear. Our hearts are heavy, but I know the power in pip prayer...

Love & Eternal Light,

Linda

(angel friendship and compassion hugs) Oh Linda, I'm soooooooo sorry to hear of your most dearest loss, dearest friend. (wipes tear) You and your family have endured ever soooooooo much recently and just beginning to try and envision all the emotion surrounding it makes me cry myself, but all the same you have a glowing, shining optimism, hope and zest for life that I'm sure both your parents share with you, and it is in that brilliant, prismatic light in your heart where your mother will forever be with you in heart and spirit! (hugs)



(hugs) I will always be here if you need an angel friend to talk to, dearest friend, as you are one of the best friends I've ever had on-line and you always inspire me with your angelic encouragement and Leo-esque generosity, enthusiasm and warmheartedness. (hugs) I can't quite relate to these experiences as I'm still just beginning to spread my wings in life, but I am always close to my family who I love very much, and when I see my mother smoke a lot, I often get concerned her health is ailing and feel for her very much.

(hugs) As for your father, I hope he heals as soon as possible, as I can't even begin to imagine how it must feel to cope with physical and emotional adversity at once. (wipes tear) He sounds like a most loving father anyone would be blessed to have, and I send sympathy and gentle chiropractic angel hugs his way.



God Bless You and your loving golden heart, dearest friend, and I will continue to think of you and send condolence and healing angel hugs your way!



Love,
Noah Eaton

Oh, Linda, I am so very sorry to hear of your sad news.  I'm sobbing for all of you, especially your dad.  I know that she is safe and sound in Heaven, and loving and caring and supporting you all on Earth who feel so bereft.  I know that words help very little, but please tell your dad from me that the measure of his berievement is the measure of his happiness of all those long years.  Tell him to be strong for his children who need him for himself and who also need him to need them.  You are all a very blessed family.  Thank you for your strength, on behalf of all of your family.  Allow yourself to be wrapped in God's, your family's and our, your Pip friends' love and concern and empathy.

Sobs, hugs, prayers, love and light

Oh, Owl, my Mom left us so early. She left us 15 years younger than my grandparents did. I am, however, eternally grateful to have had her in all our lives for as long as God had her on loan to us.

My Mom and Dad have loved each other since they were 15 and 16 years old. In all of my life, I have never witnessed such a deep abiding love such as theirs. They were adorable together and they radiated love, charm, beauty and goodness. To know them ~ or even just to meet them ~ was to immediately love them. My Dad is trying so hard to be brave ~ but then he just breaks down and sobs. He had been refusing his morphine since Mom was admitted to hospital so that he could remain alert for her.

After the doctor said it was time to take Mom off of life support because her brain was no longer functioning, my sister crawled in bed with my Mom and sang "You Are My Sunshine" which my grandfather always sang to my Mom as she was growing up and which Mom always sang to my siblings and I as we were growing up. As my sister sang the last line, my Mom gasped and died in her arms.

Later that night, when my sister was preparing for bed, she said to her son ~ I have to phone Mom to say "Goodnight" as she did every night. She then broke into tears because Mom was no longer with us. Right at that moment, the television turned on and there was a commercial playing with a woman singing "You Are My Sunshine"!!!! Yes, Mom is still with us! ~ In spirit!

During the past few days, my sister, brother and I had thought of our parents as Romeo and Juliet. 'Tis now the end of that beautiful love story ~ but it will be in our hearts and our memories for all the rest of our days.

God bless you, Diana for your loving ways,

Love & Eternal Light,

Linda

Sighing for you and your family, dearest Linda.  I am sorry for the losses you and your loved ones have incurred and I know that feeling of your Mom being there when  "You Are My Sunshine" was  heard.

Your parents were  together like my sister and her husband ever since they were teenagers.

Her loss was hard for him and all of us to bear. Today I go there to share my birthday but also in remembrance of her life as she passed away this time 2 years ago.

But I feel her presence and not meaning to make light of it but even those bats
( yes, I was left with another in my kitchen sink yesterday morning) led me to believe she is reminding me she is here watching over me...making me squirm a bit...but reminding me she loved all of nature, including bats)

((She use to tease me about the bats all the time))

My sympathy and prayers to you and yours and yes, I am sure you Mother is watching over you and loving who you are and have become.

Thank you for that beautiful response, Linda, and for letting me/us know of the beautiful ending of your mother's life on Earth and beginning of her life in Heaven.  I am rushed now, but will come back another time and copy it out and keep it.  Your family is indeed blessed, but so very worthy of being blessed.  It is so good and heart-warming to read of such love.

Maureen, I am sorry for your loss 2 years ago.  Thank you for trying to like the bats.  They are very interesting creatures.  Perhaps you could read up on them and perhaps you would squirm less when you find the next one.  And when you feel your sister most near, thank her from me, for loving the bats.

Love and hugs to you both (Linda and Maureen) and your families.

Maureen, I can only imagine all the emotions that you must be feeling at this time.  A time for celebrating the anniversaries of yours and your sister's births ~ and time of remembrance.

Yes, I do believe that the bats are an indication that your sister's spirit is near you at this special time. My girlfriend's daughter was killed in a car accident on a snowy, winter's day, and during the funeral, a bumble bee went buzzing around our heads. ~ Lindsay loved bumble bees...

My nephew Chad,  who disappeared when he was 18 on Lake Ontario, has visited each of us from time to time. There is absolutely no doubt that the spirit survives its corporeal death. None whatsoever.

I appreciate your thoughtfulness and for sharing your wonderful story with me. I regret replying to your poem about the bats in such a cavalier manner. If I had understood the significance, I would have responded in an entirely different manner. I do believe that your sister was communicating that all is well and that she will always be nearby.

Sending you a loving hug of understanding and appreciation,

Linda

Linda..I didn't think much about the connection with the bats and my sister until that second one appeared the next day...
Then I realized she is trying to get to me.

And I spent yesterday looking up bathouses etc and how to get them to be somewhere other than mistakenly finding my living quarters.
I don't mind if they like the attic or peak of the house where no one goes. So I am going to be making several bat houses and placing them at the back of my property or better still maybe at the side of it since it was my neighbor who shooed them from her house to mine.


Thinking of you,

Dearest ((((((Linda))))), I am reaching out to hug you in this moment of deep sadness for the loss of your dear Mother. May her soul soar high back Home.
Praying for you and your family, especially for your Father.
It's a blessing when there is such a deep bond, but the pain is deep.
