A chat friend loses a loved one...

I was given some very sad news the other day. I was told that a chat friend had lost her husband. I am sure many of you remember tropic, or you may have known her as uglygal....

I was very saddened to hear of her loss, and was not sure how to contact her to express my condolences. I am hoping that some of you still speak with her and could perhaps send all my thoughts to her. This is what I wanted to say.

"Dear Sharon, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I know that we had our differences some time ago, but now that all seems so silly. We were once friends, and I hope you take my condolences for what they are - truly heartlfelt. If there is anything at all I can do for you in this time of need, please call. Your friend, Sue"

Thank you in advance to anyone that is able to pass this message on to tropic.

I've been computer-less for nearly a week, and was sad to read this, susieB.

(((((((((((((SUSIEB)))))))) I tend not to post in discussions like this not because I am heartless but because I feel uncomfortable about saying "sorry" when some one dies. I got so tired of hearing people say "sorry " when my mother died.. I wanted to scream " it wasn't your fault and no matter how much you say sorry it won't bring her back".

(((((( susie, Liam, Minty and all )))))))))
I was away for awhile just got back recently. Was unable to access the boards my computer and I had a difference of opinion.

It was truly sad that Gal lost her hubby. They had a wonderful life together. Complimented each other along with their daughter.
Her hubby suffered a massive heart attack that was never expected. The only thing I can do is let WACKROSS know about the outpouring of sympathy. She is in touch with GAL.

Gal's daughter was to start college in Sept. She was able to work it out that she will start in Jan. This way she can start fresh in Jan. While she will still be sad, she knows her dad would want her to go on with her dreams.
So I send my wishes to (((( Gal and her daughter))))) May they find some peace in their lives.

I know a lot of you think the world of pearlcat, her mother passed away yesterday afternoon.

Even though it was expected it still hurts like hell to lose a loved one.

pearlcat was very close with her mom.

I'm sure any condolences sent her way will be appreciated.

Pearlcats Loss

(((pearlcat)))
Your Hurt Is In My Heart.
Eveyone goes through grieving differently, there will be those that say "just get over it". Well, you will never truly be over losing a loved one. I say let yourself feel...you are not a name in a PC afterall. You are Human. We Humans have what they call "Emotions" far more real that any "emotocon". Always remember you are never alone. I am very sorry for your loss sweetie.
A poem I wrote 8 years ago when my sister "sadielou" was killed. I still miss her very much...yes I still, at times grieve her very deeply.
(((((pearlcat & family)))))

No Escape

It grabs you by the throat and compresses your chest. Your pulse pounds in your head as you struggle for breath.

It hits you cold in the middle of the day. When all seems well it jumps in the way.

It plauges your dreams while deep in sleep. No timing it knows, all hours it keeps.

You struggle for answers, you search for relief, how will you escape this thing they call Grief?


Rembering all of my WS roomies who helped me cope...
