Posted on 06/09/2006 5:44:31 PM PDT by onyx
As many of you know, Howlin has not been here much for the past couple of weeks.
Her Mom had inoperable cancer and she died peacefully at home this evening surrounded by her family.
Please leave messages and prayers for Howlin. Many of you know Howlin is my best friend and I love her and know that many of ya'll love her too.
In my prayers, FRiend...been there, no easy words to make it better, but know you and yours are in my prayers.
Death is nothing at all.
I have only slipped away into the next room.
I am I and you are you.
Whatever we were to each other
That we are still.
Call me by my old familiar name.
Speak to me in the easy way you always used.
Put no difference into your tone.
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.
Laugh as we always laughed
At the little jokes we always enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was.
Let it be spoken without effort
Without the ghost of a shadow in it.
Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was.
There is absolute unbroken continuity.
What is death but a negligible accident?
Why should I be out of mind
Because I am out of sight?
I am waiting for you for an interval
Somewhere very near
Just around the corner.
All is well.
Canon Henry Scott-Holland, 1847-1918,
Canon of St Paul's Cathedral
May God grant Howlin' solace and comfort in her time of mourning and memories.

So sorry to hear about your bad news. Your FReeper friends are waiting for you to come back. We have missed you.
Blessings on you and your family Howlin.
God's love to both you and your mother, Howlin, and may she and her grandson have a joyful meeting.
You and your loved ones are in my thoughts and prayers...
Having just lost my father 3 weeks ago and losing my beautiful sister yesterday afternoon I know first hand the pain and sorrow you are enduring - please know that my heart felt prayers go out to you and your family.
Perhaps they are not stars in the sky, but rather openings where our loved ones shine down to let us know they are happy. (author unknown)
