Got a minute?

If you have a minute to spare could you go light a candle for Susie and her family. Thank you so much for all your kind comments and prayers.

There is also someone very special to my sister Susie that I want to ask for prayers for. It is Susie's cousin Donna. Donna was there all the years with Susie that I wasn't. Susie always told me, Donna was not just her cousin, she was her best friend and a sister to her. Donna, please know I am so sorry about Susie. I know she loved you so very much. Susie and I would chat and she would tell me all the stories of you growing up together. I want to thank you with all my heart for loving, caring and sharing your life with Susie. You are my baby sister's family and you are my family too. I am so thankful we got to meet at Susie's daughter's birthday party. I could see for myself how special you really are and why my sister loved you so much.

I am doing a little better today. Still numb and in shock over all this. Thank you Lisa for our chat last night. It helped alot, and thank you to my cousin Carmen for our chat this morning. She always makes me feel better. And to my sister Helen who called me this morning and my sister Lucy who called me the other day. Helen has invited Jim and I and Dan and Emma to her house for a light supper before the viewing sunday night. I think we may take her up on the offer. Helen will then ride with us.

I have a favor to ask of you all. could you please click on the link below and light a candle for Susie's husband and their daughters? They are gonna need all the prayers we can give them to help with the healing of their broken hearts.

Again thank you all so much for caring and for being here for me. It means alot to me.

 

Love to all.............  Cindy

  4. I know everyone is so hurt right now.  I'm going over there.  Just letting you all know that I'm thinking of you and praying for you during this very hard time.

    So glad that she had a friend like Donna and a wonderful sister like you.  She was very blessed.

  5. I am so sorry for your loss Cindy. I lost my daughter three months ago and have found that The Compassionate Friends has really helped. I don't know if they have a chapter near you but they do have online chat. The link is http://www.compassionatefriends.org/OSC_Development/schedule.htm if you are interested. My older daughter has found that as time goes by people don't have as much sympathy for siblings. She says that she feels like people think she should have moved on by now. Groups like TCF help because they all understand and have been or are going through the same feelings. With sympathy, Julie

  11. Already did it for thing this morning. I have a question I know they are requesting no flowers, but donation. I hope I'm not being forward, but do they need the money for funeral expenses or for the girls. Do you know I would like to know?
    I stopped and left Donna a message yesterday too. She has a beautiful poem in her journal.
    Love and Hugs, Chrissie
