Backhoe, please check in when you get a chance.

Your FRiends are here for you.

Thank you, very much- as I mentioned privately, I may not respond much, or at all-- besides "sort of" keeping track of a lot fewer people on the thread at Free Dominion, I'm still waiting for the funeral home to call when her ashes are ready, and for the coroner. A call I dread, but I really need to know what happened to her.

And our two fur babies- one a puppy, the other nearly 17-- need some attention.

Just a few days ago, saying about Cole ( the Golden Retriever puppy ):

"He makes me smile more than anything I've ever had!"

Hello,
I was given a poem by the funeral home just before my Mom’s funeral that I liked so much I had it read at her funeral. It touched me and I will forever be thankful for the woman who gave it to me.

“Death is nothing at all.
I have only slipped away into the next room.
I am I, and you are you and whatever we were to each other, that we are still.
Life means all that it ever meant,
It is the same as it ever was.
There is an absolute unbroken continuity.
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.
Nothing is past.
Nothing is lost.
One brief moment and all will be as it was before.
How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting when we meet again”

MOgirl

I can’t imagine your pain. My heart breaks reading this, and my thoughts turn to the notion that Christ’s agony in the garden really must have been that of the entire world, because only a sorrow so great can truly comprehend the loss of a wife and best friend.

Ah backhoe. I am so sorry. I love the picture you posted and hope you will post more. What a lovely woman and what a tender moment you captured in that shot.

I just KNOW that our FATHER designed dogs (and cats, and horses, and on and on and on and on and on......) to bring us joy, understandinh love and so much more.

Hold um close and keep us posted.

I will pray for you and yours.
