I am so very sorry to hear of the death of your sister and as you know I do understand what you have been through. She fought a brave battle and it makes me so sad to know she is gone now and not here where you can talk to her anymore. You have your own special angel now, and count on her to watch over you.
Love is the wayTo heal the broken heartAnd love never swaysWhen tragedy makes its markLove is the keyTo open closed doorsSo pain can find releaseAnd hurting is no more
Teresa, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your sister. She is with God now and will be taken care of and is at peace. It is never easy to accept such a loss but I hope you will take some comfort in knowing how much we all care about you and your family. You are in my thoughts and prayers. We all have regrets that we didn't get to see or talk to someone but I am sure she knew just how much you loved her. Try to take good care of yourself.
I just wanted you to know that I am thinking about you & that I am so sorry for your loss x
My prayers and thoughts are with you as I do know what you have been through. Many gentle hugs my dear friend.
Let us hear how you are doing. I know it has been just over a week ago.

I bet you are tired, I have a sledge hammer if you want me to knock you out for a few days
It is sad that it takes a funeral to get to see some of our relatives or friends. It seems to be healing to be surround by people that really cared about your sister and your family. at least it did for me.
My prayers are with you
You start with us if you would like to. You know we are here for you and if you want to share, vent then have a go with it.
You have lost so much and we often feel angry when someone dies but we don't want to mention it a it makes us feel guilty. Remember guilt is a wasteed emotion my friend.
Let out the tears and talk about you, how your feeling. Remember take as long as you need to get through this. There is not time limit on grief.
Gentle Hugs and prayers.

Teresa, I truly understand where you are coming from. The economy is so bad. There is nothing wrong with getting gifts from a second hand shop. I am sure your kids will understand and it is an important lesson for all to learn no matter how young , that we need to live within our means. Unfortunately for many of us that means not having much right now. And I can sympathize with you about getting a job as I have been looking and sending out resumes and I have had no luck and I have a lot of very good work experience. Of course there are not many jobs to apply for. I am on payment plans to 6 different drs. and the hospital as this has been a very bad year for me healthwise. Most of the blling offices will accept small payments as long as I make them every month. One office was very nasty so I told them "Does the dr. need a new Mercedes or BMW this year that my payment means so much" That shut her up pretty quickly. I hate doing that because I am not that kind of person but in these times every company or dr or credit card needs to work with people to help them out of their terrible financial mess. We are having a very small Christmas this year. My sons are grown so they understand and as far as I am concerned I have reached the age where there is nothing that I need. I told them just to get me some new pens and a day planner. I will fix a nice meal and I have decorated with all the things I have had for many years so we at least look festive. The point is to be together as a family and enjoy each other. My family consists of me and my 2 sons so we really need to appreciate each other. Well, as usual I have written another wordy post but wanted to wish you a happy holiday and don't stress too much about the gifts. We will get passed this bad time and survive. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers and hope that your situation will iimprove. I know it is a struggle for you and you have had a very hard year but we all care about you and want to help. Keep your faith as God will help you.

Teresa i am so incredibly sorry for your loss, which must be compounded by the holiday season. i am usually in the AP forum, but i drop by here as i struggle with depression at times.
all i can say is that my heart goes out to you and your family- im glad you celebrated your sisters life as you laid her to rest. you are in my prayers at this difficult time. know that you are cared for and loved.
Hello Dear Friend, you know how sad I feel about your sister. I still have mine but a friend of hers died two days ago of Ovarian Cancer and I think she is taking it much harder then she expected too as she new it was coming. I think she now feels she is probably going to die too. Same cancer.
Hey I found dollar stores and they are a hoot. I have bought stickers, and little picture frames and all kinds of things so the kids have packages to open. I have found throughout the years when I bought the big $100.00 ticket toy after two days the toy was lying abandoned.
So know you are with all of us in the cut the cost of Christmas.
Teresa, you are a remarkable lady and I admire you so much, you will make it through with us to stand by you.
