Dear friends, last night quite suddenly my last
remaining brother walked into the light.
Since I cannot fly, the drive to his funeral will be long
and weary and I will be away for a little more than
two weeks. Internet possibilities will at best be intermittent,
so my normal posting and visiting will be on hold.
He has gone somewhere over the rainbow to be with his
parents and brother and sister......may blessed peace envelop
them all now.
Though we pass from the present, our love remains behind.
I just got back from a mini vacation and am saddened to hear of this. Please know that you are in my prayers. You will see your brother again one day. HugsReplyDelete
I am so sorry to hear your news. I will add you and your family to my prayer list.ReplyDelete
My thoughts and prayers are with you and yours, Arija. Peace and Godspeed, dear friend.ReplyDelete
Arija, peace be with you during this loss.ReplyDelete
"Your dreams, as well as the obstacles placed on your path, are gifts given you so that you might sooner see this Light that now surrounds you. Of these gifts, my parting was one. You need not be sad, for even now I am with you - though you must close your eyes to see me."ReplyDelete
