Death is the appointment we must all keep, and for which no time is set…

Love is stronger than death even though it can’t stop death from happening, but no matter how hard death tries, it cannot separate people from love. It can’t take away our memories, either. In the end, life is stronger than death.

 

I love you, Mommy

  2. p.s. I hit post comment before I remembered to go back and say what a fabulous picture that is of your mama. Y'all look a lot alike, too. Strong beautiful women run in your family.

  3. The angels are always near to those who are grieving, to whisper to them that their loved ones are safe in the hand of God.

  15. Dee from Tennessee or just Dee (from June's blog)


    Waaaaaaaaaay behind on blogs and just happened to catch one brief comments and I knew I had to "locate you." And I did. And I saw your blog post title --- and then I held my breath. Just so so sorry. I wish I was a wordsmith and knew the right words, but I don't . But please know that a lil old lady is praying for you waaaaaaaay up here in the rolling hills and mts of Tennessee. The Lord promises He will draw nigh to the brokenhearted. Again, I am just so very sorry from my heart. Your mom's picture is beautiful, and I'm sure she was just as beautiful on the inside as the outside. In day and months and years to come, may your memories give you more comfort than you can ever think possible in the season of your life. Sending you a Tennessee hug wrapped up in prayers, Dee

  17. Dawn,

    Like everyone else, I came over to say how sorry I am, and then once I saw your mother's photo I had to also say how lovely she was. I know you feel awful right now and knowing you are in my thoughts helps, you know, not at all, but still. I am thinking of you, hon.

  21. Saying goodbye to the mom you love truly changes your life forever, that is just a fact all of us who lost her have to face.

    We have to live our lives well for her, because you know they would expect nothing less.

    I'm very sorry for you Dawn.
