Monday Musings About Loss…

I know I’ve been absent a lot lately.  We lost another dear friend on Friday, a warm and funny woman who was like a sister to my husband growing up.  When he first moved up north, he lived with her family and they all treated him liked one of their own.  In fact, one of hubby’s sisters was married to one of Pat’s brothers so our two families share a niece and two nephews.

Unfortunately, Pat needed a lung transplant a few years ago and had grown frail recently.  The anti-rejection drugs she took made it difficult to fight infections and she was in and out of the hospital.

The wake and funeral are today and tomorrow, a few hours drive from us.  And this comes only a few months after we lost my DSIL in Tennessee to complications from pancreatitis.  It’s sad and difficult and a stark reminder of how short and fragile life really is…

    1. If I let myself, I can get really depressed, but as you say, everyone goes through it at some point. Trying to concentrate on all the good times we had together 🙂

  10. Sending much love and support. And despite my recent loss, I am, of course, here for you. The reminders that life is short hit hard… and really make me wish I didn’t have a birthday coming up. I’d like to stop the aging process now.

    So sorry for your recent losses. I hope the days ahead are brighter. ♥
