Sad week

I've had a sad week, a friend of mine passed away monday un expectedly. A close family, all very loving I can't even begin to imagine how it'll affect them. My heart goes out to all of them, big hugs to you all.

i am sorry for your pain... it descends like a heavy damp fog and envelopes you... then, when you think it has lifted, it settles again...
the only way i get thru these times anymore is my belief that the loved one is now more accessible to you... the spirit has split from the body and can now be wherever it chooses to be... when living, a person is only with you when you are in physical proximity... but in the new state, can be with you anytime... while deeply missed and never forgotten, i can say that i sometimes feel a connection to those who have died now that i find reassuring...
and i once heard someone say that they are with you in the sun that shines on your face, in the wind that blows through your hair, and the rain that falls from the sky... point being, they are now everywhere and a part of everything... my sympathy to your and your friend's family...

i am so sorry, that kind of grief wraps around you like damp fog... it begins to lift but then resettles...
remember that your friend is everywhere now, and not tied to the physical form... while it doesn't bring her back she can be felt at anytime...
my sympathies to you and all who are hurt...
