Dear, dear Marge
I am so sorry to hear the news. I commend everyone before my response for not trying to give you false hope. However, please forgive me, for not accepting the news from qualified and experienced doctors and medical staff. I am still praying to our best friend, God, for a miracle, and I don't believe your time has come yet. If I am wrong, and it is, in fact, your time, please know that Flicka, my beloved horse, will meet you at the gate. You will know each other instantaneously and there will be an immediate and wonderful bond of love and friendship between you that will last for all eternity. (Please give him my love, although I know he knows he has it, but he will enjoy hearing it again.) He will make you welcome and pass on messages to you from us on Earth. If I am wrong, may your passage be light and beautiful for you, as you walk towards the light in acceptance, fearlessness and joy. You will be going to a place of Peace and Harmony, and you will see God face to face whereas we, on Earth will still be seeing, as through a glass, darkly. May God bring your family the peace of understanding, knowing that your suffering is over and may they feel their bond with you even more strongly than before.
The tears are only trickling down my face. They are not gushing and I am not sobbing, because I don't believe your time has come yet. The tears are only for your current pain and suffering. If your time does come soon, my tears will gush and I will sob my heart dry, but that will be for my own selfishness of missing you, and for your family and friends including all of your Pip friends.
You have lived a life to be proud of. You have brought such happiness and love to all around you and to all of us here on Pip. I am very, very honoured to be your friend. You will never ever be forgotten by anyone whose life you have touched.
Huglets dearest Marge
(and thank you dearest Karen and Tracie)
