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.
I'm so sorry you've lost your Mom, such sad news. Does it help to know your friends and admirers here want to help you through this very sad time? I hope so. Linda
Howlin, our thoughts and prayers are with you.
I want you to know that many of us were praying for you and your mom these last few weeks, and we will continue to pray. We know your mom is now in safe in God's arms, so now our prayers will be that He comfort you and bring you to peace with her passing out of our world and into His world.
We love you Howlin, don't forget that.
I am sorry for your loss.
My thoughts are with you.
Howlin- Please accept my deepest and heartfelt sympathy on the loss of your beloved Mother.
I am so sorry.
Prayers for Howlin and her family for Peace and may the spirit of her Mother comfort her, looking down from Heaven.
My prayers for you, your mom and your entire family, Howlin.
I've read and liked your posts but I have noticed that you haven't been posting much recently. Now I understand why. God bless.

In the moments of quiet, feel the hand of the Lord on your shoulder. May you find comfort in memories.
Thank you, onyx.
God Bless Howlin and those close to her
Oh my goodness, Howlin... I had no idea. I'm so sorry for your loss. Prayers for your mom, for you and for your family...
So very sorry, Howlin. Just as your mom is now at peace, I pray that your heart will be as well. God bless you and comfort you.
Prayer request ping...
I'm so sorry to hear of the passing of your mother
I pray that the Good Lord give you and your family the strength you will need in this time of great sorrow
Sorry to say I pinged her earlier, not knowing about this sadness in her life.
Howlin, take peace in knowing that your mom is with the Lord and that she passed peacefully with her family near to her.
Lord be with you too.
I lost my dad in January, Howlin.
My thoughts and prayers to you.
Howlin, years ago, when you bought your new home, there was a picture posted of your kitchen with your Mom in it. She was a lovely lady.
I pray that you find comfort from your FReeper family who are grieving with you.. and that Drew and his Grandmother are together again.
Take care, Howlin..Spectre and wife..
My deepest sympathy. She who bore you is awaiting you now, her pain gone and her life no longer encumbered by a failing shell. Her real life is begun. Take comfort in the fact that she sees you and loves you. Death is not strong enough to change that.
A prayer for Peace for you and your loved ones.
Prayers for your comfort and peace.
I hope you are surrounded by sane, sensitive, caring, generous relatives and friends. If not, I hope you have a thick skin and selective deafness. Some people have no idea what to say or how to behave after the death of a loved one.
Take things slow, just get through this.
Miss Me -- But Let Me Go
When I come to the end of the road
And the sun has set for me
I want no rites in a gloom-filled room.
Why cry for a soul set free?
Miss me a little--but not too long
And not with your head bowed low.
Remember the love that we once shared,
Miss me--but let me go.
For this is a journey that we all must take
And each must go alone.
It's all a part of the Master's plan,
A step on the road to home.
When you are lonely and sick of heart
Go to the friends we know
And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds.
Miss Me--But Let me Go!
Howlin, my thoughts and prayers to you and your family.
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,

May God grant Howlin' solace and comfort in her time of mourning and memories.
That is beautiful. Thank you for sharing it.
Prayers to the one true God for one great contributor to FR and her family.
Howlin, my prayers go out to you and your family this evening. May your mother rest in peace and may you know many here care for you.
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)
