    Deepest sympathies for the loss of your mom. Wishing you God’s peace as you remember the remarkable woman she was.

    Mary, so sorry you and Tom have to go through this…as if you weren’t going through enough.

    I, too, ‘go with my gut’ instincts, though I like to believe it’s my parents way of still giving me advise.

    I hope you have better care in Pittsburgh! My dad was from the Pittsburgh area…a little coal-mining town on the Monangahela river just south of there.

    Thinking of you both,
    Jolene

    A big welcome home, Kris. So glad to hear this news. Take care of yourself, or better yet…continue to have Hans take care of you. He does a very good job!

    Enjoy each other,
    Jolene

    Leo, I’m wishing you and your family wonderful memories and many journies. I’m reminded of a poplular philosophy: (paraphrasing) Life is not about the number of breaths we take, but about the moments that take our breath away.” There is also, I have found, profound wisdom that comes from the simplicity of children. We only need to listen. I’m sure the trips with your wife and son will be filled with breath-taking insights.

    Peace be with you and yours,
    Jolene

    Alie,

    I am so sorry about this latest news. I agree with Pam, I don’t know what I would’ve done without Hospice. Mom was only with Hospice for 18 days, but they were available daily. And I know mom was happy and comfortable with their services. These next weeks are so valuable. Hospice told me not to worry about anything…it was time for me to be a daughter and treasure the time we had together. I took this advise, and have not regretted it.

    Take care, Alie…these next weeks will be bittersweet. You are in my prayers.

    Debby,

    My deepest sympathies to you and your family at the loss of your husband. Even though we care for our loved ones at their most vulnerable times, what we are able to provide to them is so sacred in the most spiritual sense. I was mom and dad’s caregivers for their illnesses beginning 4 years ago. I lost my beloved dad to CC 20 months ago, I lost my wonderful mother-in-law 36 days ago and my beautiful mother 33 days ago.

    Like the others, I understand the confusion, grief, mourning etc. It really stinks! Personally, I have put my cell phone on mute, turned the ringer off on the home phone and the volume as low as it can go. I check it when I feel like it. My thank-yous aren’t done yet, either…as I was reminded by an older aunt at church sunday…

    I went to a grief counseling group hosted by Hospice. They’ve provided wonderful pamphlets, and call once a week to see how things are or if I need anything. I still feel too numb to talk about anything with them; heck, I don’t even feel like putting on make up, or combing my hair. And they said it was normal! Good to know.

    I am so sorry your husband died. I am sorry that you had to see him suffer, and become so dependent on you. I am sorry that you are mourning the love of your life. I hope, that in time, you will find your smile again…and until you do, we all walk with you holding each other up.

    with love and prayer,
    Jolene

    PS: the Hospice gal gave me this website. I haven’t checked it out yet…I plan to, though. I’m told there is some info about grieving on it. I’ll pass it along to you too.

    Matilda,

    It is frightening when everything seems to go bad very quickly. Barely time to act or react. I am so sorry to hear of the news of your dad. Wishing you and your family peace.

    Keeping you and Kris in my thoughts and prayers. Thanks for the updates. I’m sure you will both be more comfortable once you are back in your hometown, and definitely in your own home.

    Hans and Kris, I am so sorry about this disappointing news. Hans will be very busy delivering all of our hugs to you, Kris. I have said it before, and others have, too, I admire you so very much. And dear Hans, you must be an extraodinary man to be loved by such an amazing woman.

    I received a large bouquet of multi-colored tulips today in remembrance of my mom’s birthday…they reminded me not only of my beloved mom, but also of you, Kris, and your gardens. May you find peace in your gardens, comfort in the arms of your loved ones, and joy in your friends, near and far.

    With love,
    Jolene

    Mom’s Daughter, Wishing you peace in the coming days. I lost my dad to CC 19 months ago & my mom and mominlaw 2 1/2 weeks ago. While the pain is deep, there is comfort to be among others who share this sad, though common, ache.

    Sincerest sympathies,
    Jolene
