I'm so sorry for your loss. It seems always more difficult to accept the death of a young person. We expect our parents to die before we do, which seems to make it a little bit easier to deal with. Big hugs to you.

Good luck today, chica! Be strong, but cry if you need to, it's ok. It's how our hearts start to heal. That's really cool what the firefighters do! I got a lump just reading about it. I think you're right about the surprise loss vs an expected loss... with the expected loss you have some time to start the grieving and prepare for it before it happens. With the surprise loss you're just thrown into the grieving process all at once and it's sink or swim... both ways hurt a lot, though, no matter what.

Glad to see you are having some bright moments!

I will see you when I get back from vacation in a couple of weeks!

Hugs to you girlfriend!



I just want to say I feel your loss and want you to know that if you need to take more time, do it. Your faithful followers will understand and those who don't...well then it is their loss. I lost a very dear friend last year in July, she had just celebrated her 44th birthday. It was a car accident. I still miss her so much. There are so many things I do that remind me of the the wonderful times we had together. Those memories are so special to me. I did save the obituary and the folder from her funeral and my intent is to scrapbook them...I haven't been able to do that yet and maybe I will decide it isn't as important as just remembering the good times. I wish there was something to say to ease your pain, but just know you are thought of and Chris' life will be celebrated by good friends like you.

Be true to yourself and honor your needs during this difficult time. It's horribly hard and painful, but it is a process~ allow yourself to feel it & live it and the healing will come. Please know that you have friends across the country who are supporting you as you grieve. Big hugs to you, my friend. Marilyn
