"Grief is like waves in the ocean:
At first the waves come in fast and hard,
But as time goes on,
The waves become less intense and further apart."

Your dad started a new and wondrous journey on what would have been my mom’s 84th birthday… Your travels are so similar to ours when we got the call and she was 3000 miles away. We arrived at 3:30 and she passed on 12 hours later. No communication ~ but I know in my heart that she knew we were there and gave us that time to be with her.
My sister and I had quality time driving back across Canada then down to Louisiana and then heading home to North Carolina. A wonderful time of remembering… and bonding closer together since it’s just the 2 of us… now.
It’s been 2 ½ years ~ and the verse above is so true. Let yourself ride the waves ~ don’t fight or struggle with them… and it is true about the tears of grief, they release a healing enzyme and your body heals and the mind and heart never forget.
Thank you for sharing your heart with us… we hold it gently and are here for you!
Take time to heal…
May happy memories replace the sadness in your heart.
Tenderly… may time heal your sorrow,
Gently… may friends ease your pain,
Softly… may peace replace heartache,
And may warmest memories remain.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.
In Friendship ~ Lee & Buddy
