Thank you all so much. You do my heart good. Kris, you can email me anytime. Ben is at Appalachian State. He’s having a tough time, but I think will be okay. Sarah is still at home with me attending Winston-Salem State to get her teaching degree. I’m still looking for work. I’m sure things will get better. One day at a time. You all are always in my thoughts and prayers too. Much love, Carol
I found this on a website. A Christmas Prayer for those who have suffered the recent death of a loved one:
God of compassion, there is such a hole in my heart! Today should be a day of joy, but I feel only emptiness and loss. While the world celebrates around me, I remember Christmas celebrations of the past and I long to have my loved one with me. I bring my sorrows to you, Lord, like some odd gift of the magi and dump them at your feet. In my blind tears I wonder if anyone can possibly understand the depth of my sadness.
I know, you can. You sent your son to be with us in our deepest sorrows and I know that even though I might not feel it now, you are here with me, grieving with me, caring for me in my sadness. Dearest lord, help me to turn to the one I miss so much today and speak. Help me heal the loss of our parting and help me not to regret the things I didn’t say. Sorrow tears at my heart, but today I ask that my loss soften my heart and make me more compassionate with everyone I meet, so that my loss may become a gift to others.
I’m so sorry about Ron. He was such an inspiration to Charlie. I know you’ll miss him dearly and keep him in your hearts.
Oh Jan, I’m so sorry and I’m sorry I didn’t know about your Dad. Was Karen your Dad’s Hospice nurse too? She was wonderful. Did you get a chance to go to the Hospice Memorial service in Winston-Salem in Dec.? I saw Karen there. It was very nice. Your Dad’s name would have been up on one of the trees just like Charlie’s was. I think of you often and hope you’re doing well.

Fantastic news Suzanne!

I am so sorry for you and your family Gavin over losing your Dad. You’re right. He’ll always be in the hearts of those who loved him and he won’t be forgotten.

Lots of love and prayers for you Kris. Fingers and everything else crossed that the blood vessels are in the right place for surgery and good liver function tests.

Hey Marjo, I always picked on Charlie about his boyish haircut too.
Sophie, you are such a sweet and wonderful person. I’m glad some of the prayers comfort you. I know they do me too. Take care of yourself. Praying for you and everyone on this site.

Barbara is a wonderful woman. She emailed me personally when Charlie died. Her Dad died on the same day. She is very special!

I’m so glad for you Lisa. It’s wonderful when things sometimes surprise us when they go smoothly. I hope it continues for a long time.

Thank you all so much for your sweet condolences. Life does go on, but dreadful sometimes without Charlie. I’m nowhere near that “acceptance” part of grief. I’m in the “I can’t believe he’s not here anymore stage” I guess…shock and denial??
Tess, I love what you said about Charlie playing in a bigger band now and Butch playing golf Joyce. Thank you Sophie, I hope you’re doing alright. Karen, Heather, Colleen all with recent losses of your loved ones, thank you for taking the time to comfort me.
Kris, Lainy, Joyce M, Marjo, Janet, Darla, Jan, Jamie, Patty, Terri, all of you. You’re the best!

Thank you Marion. I think it turned out well. Hugs to you too!
Thank you Darla. I know it hasn’t been that long for you either. I hope you’re getting along as well as you can.
Janet, modern technology is amazing! Hope things are settling down for you and your family a little. Thank you.
Don’t feel bad Jan. We’ve laughed over the crazy 80’s and 90’s big glasses too. Thank you for your prayers! Hope your Dad is doing alright.

Does this help? I googled it and came up with this site.

I hope the new chemo keeps your tumors in check too. It is a lot to keep up with. Wishing you all the best.

Dear Pam, I’m so sorry. You and your family must be reeling when things started happening so fast with your Mom. What a beautiful loving family. What more could anyone want than to go peacefully into the arms of our dear Savior surrounded by those that love us most? I know you will miss her terribly.
