As many of you know, my Mom recently passed away on June 23, and today (July 27, 2006), my Dad has joined her.

These past few weeks have been estremely emotional for me and the rest of our family. It is, however, somewhat comforting to know that Romeo has joined his Juliet and that they are in the loving arms of God ~ and each other.

Thank you for all the compassionate emails and for the loving responses to Owl's post requesting prayers for me and my parents.

Blessings of love and joy to you all,

Love & Eternal Light,
Linda

When I gaze at the miraculous sky above,
I know that two brilliant new stars now shine in the heavens.
May their light guide your way during times of sadness,
and may you be soothed by the knowledge
that love's eternal beauty will forever shine.
Let love be your comfort.
You are in my heart and in my prayers.

I am so sorry for the loss of your parents Linda.
Please accept my deepest sympathy.

~With love & comforting light, Nancy~

Well dear lady. You have prayers from my heart on your behalf. I have lost my dad and still enjoy the pleasure of my mom's presence. So I don't totally understand but have enough experience to sympathize. It seems you have found peace of mind I pray you have the strength and courage to carry on. I will be thinking of you during these hard times.

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

I can only offer my  sympathy and some hugs to see you through. I can't imagine so much grieving in so short a time...but I do understand the losses...
Thinking of you~~

Dearest Linda, your Mother and Father are in each others' embrace and that is indeed a comforting thought, but please allow me to extend my heartfelt sympathy for your loss, and for your family's loss.  Sending all the love and light I can muster up your way, my friend....jo

SweetAngelofthisEarth~

If Heaven can hold all the love
that leaves us here our sorrow
then I know that someday
someday ....
what rejoicing there will be
when it is our turn to enter
loved ones in such great number
will be there waiting to welcome us home~

Prayer vigil quietly kept for you and yours in your loss dear lady~

Dear Linda,

Time will heal the sorrow
You are dealing with today
And on each new tomorrow
They'll show their love some way

Warm hearted hugs to you my friend

EA,
My heart goes out to you.  Some people just are linked so closely that they share the same breath.  Your parents - sound incredible.  The lesson of love they have taught us all will remain with me.

It sounded as though your father longed to be with your mom, so you can rejoice in that part.  Yet losing both parents in such a short time, has to be very traumatic.  My heart goes out to you and yours.

May God richly bless you with the fond memories to ease your heartache.

Each of them resides within you, physically and emotionally.
So in fact, though they are now together
in another realm, they are also always
with you.
Heart hugs,
I know you will miss their
daily presence here on Earth.

Linda, you yourself are a testament to how wonderful they must have been. To have raised a  daughter like you they must have indeed been very special people.

I wish them an eternity of happiness and I salute your strength and fortitude.

Wishing you the very best....

Dearest Linda

The tears are coursing down my cheeks so that I can hardly see what I am typing.  I know that the loss is so very, very much more heart-wrenching for you and so many implications of it are flooding through my mind at the moment that I, who understand your loss and simultaneously don't, find it unbearable.  My prayers go out to you and your family for this very difficult time.  I am happy for your parents that they are together, and admire you so very much that you can put them first in your unbelievable grief.  In spite of your grief, forgive me for saying this, and please understand I don't mean you any pain by this, but I envy you.

My dear, treasured pipsters, my tears of sorrow are mixed with tears of gratitude for your out-pouring of love. Words cannot adequately express how you have all touched me with your compassion and kindness.

I am also filled with a serene sense of peace that my parents are reunited in The Beyond from whence they came. The beauty on their insides matched the beauty of their outsides. I was proud to be their first-born ~ their "Love Child".

Since their mid-teens, they have been inseparable ~ and experienced a deep, abiding love and respect for one another. They were bright, articulate, accomplishe, talented, generous and highly spirited people who loved their children, nature and their fellow man. To know them was to love them. To be in their presence was to raise one's own vibration.

My sister, brother, and I are experiencing an extreme sense of loss, however, we are so deeply appreciative to have been blessed with parents such as they were.

I read each and every one of your compassionate ~ and eloquent ~ responses to the news of my parents' passings. You are all heart and soul and that is what makes you the fine poets that you are.

Last evening, my family encouraged me to attend my monthly open-mike poetry gathering.  I recited 8 poems ~ one of which was my most recent post "His Rose ~ Her Thyme". The love and support that I received, was almost over-whelming. One lady, a Reiki Master, came over and sat with me all evening with her loving hand on my back ~ sending healing energy into all aspects of my being. She also gave me her card and offered to give me a full treatment free of charge. Another woman offered to have me over for a weekend so that she could pamper me. I barely even know these two blessed people!
I am now pleased that I was encouraged to attend Poetry Night. Poets are the sort of people that one needs to be around when one is in need of loving support and understanding.

Thank you all for being you! ~ and for being the poets that you are!

With much love,

Linda
EA
