Rapunzel,

I am so very sorry. I wish I could offer more personal comfort than this electronic neighborhood allows. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

Aisling

Hey, Sweetie ~

I've been thinking of you around the clock - please know I am here for you and your family, in any way/shape/form necessary...

The soup/salad/muffins I brought over Wednesday night was overflowing with caring and concern - I'll see you Monday, if not before... <3

Rapunzel said...

Susan, the delicious food you gifted to use has been such a blessing, thank you so much! I put your soup into the crockpot (overflowing!) yesterday before we headed out for errands, etc; it was so wonderful to come home last night after the funeral home appointment and find a bowl of *comfort* and *love* ready for us. Thank you, my dear friend. I love you.

Rapunzel said...

Aisling, thank you so very much. Your support and friendship has meant so much to me over the years, and most especially now.

rapunzel,
I feel so sorry you and yours are suffering the loss of such a special and meaningful person in your lives....she looks like a very special spirit who is now, no longer suffering....my thoughts and prayers are with you, rapunzel, with hopes of a brighter day just like your mom would want for you...

I looked closely at the two pictures of your mother, the last one of her when she was well and the previous one, when she was so terribly ill....

I know you must miss her terribly as she looks like a special and loving mother, just like you. I don't believe anyone really leaves, we just can't see them...it doesn't mean they can't see us and send us all the love they always felt for us.

many prayers, my dear...

Oh
I am so sorry,
You and your Mum have been in my thoughts and prayers.
I am sending a hug in my thoughts, and holding you
and your family close in my thoughts.
I am so sorry for your loss,
wish there was more that I could do.

Jen said...

Oh, I am so very sorry for your loss. Sending prayers and positive thoughts your way.

Blessings,

Hi Rapunzel ~ I am so sorry for your loss. Whenever you wrote posts about your mom it was very clear how much you loved each other. Sending you warm wishes and prayers - you are in our thoughts.

Oh M...so so sorry for your loss. I called my sister yesterday to see how your mom was doing because she was constantly in my thoughts these past few days. I was saddened by the update and I hope you know that there is much love and support from across all these miles for you and your family. I will definitely be sure to see you the next time I am in your neck of the woods, whenever that may be. Blessings...

I visited you last night when I got home from work and left you a message but I don't think it worked so if it did, sorry for the double message. I'm sending you all my love and many hugs and wish for you and your family comfort and peace in the weeks to come. Just know how much I care, and she is so beautiful for sure.

Karla said...

I've been thinking about you all and praying for you all so much these past few weeks especially. Much love being sent your way.

Dearest! Hoping you got my first note -- but had to let you know again that you are always in my thoughts! Brightest blessings in this time!

From Thomas Wolfe:

"To lose the earth you know, for greater knowing;
to lose the life you have, for greater life;
to leave the friends you have loved, for greater loving;
to find a land more kind than home, more large than earth,
whereon the pillars of this world are founded,
toward which the conscience of the world in tending --
A wind is rising and the rivers flow."

We grieve with you!
