God Saw You

by Unknown Author

God saw you getting tired and a
cure was not to be,
So he put his arms around you
and whispered "Come to me".
With tearful eyes we watched you,
and saw you pass away, And though
we loved you dearly,
we could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
hard-working hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to
us, He only takes the best.

a mothers loss
by: cathleen

I think the biggest loss of all is that of a child. I lost mine 26 years ago and the empty space in my heart is still there. She was just 2 - just embarking on life. I will forever miss you my darling, beautiful, wonderful daughter.
You are loved and missed Tabatha.

Singing Along Without You Sis
by: Sonia

I lost my Sister last year to Hodgkins Lymphoma and watched her suffer for three years when she was diagnosed.

She left a young daughter behind who also lost her Father two years prior (my Sis's ex)....and now this young lady has no Mom & Dad.

We are her support. Now and then my Sister seems to be around me because I sense her presence and I pray a little prayer to her and I miss her so. She was very cheery most of the time and she was a big fan of mine and supported me when times were hard for me. Heaven above, take care of Maria for us.She and I used to sing along while driving to or from-loud...Her daughter always got a kick out of us being silly.

Beautiful story Sonia. My niece, at five years of age, lost her mom (my sister) to breast cancer. At age 7 she lost her dad to leukemia.

My sister's greatest fear was that her daughter wouldn't remember her. Every time we are together I tell my niece stories of the silly things her mom and I used to do.

My Mom is battling Alzheimer's and we know what the end will bring. We are working together while we still can on carefully picking the words that she would like spoken when that event draws to completion. This is one we both felt would really help the rest of the family.

The Perfect Poem
by: Anonymous

I just lost a dear friend of 30 years and think that this poem is one of the most beautiful that I have read. He struggled with prostate cancer and suffered terribly, this poem says it all with such beauty. Thanks to author!

Remarkable TRIBUTE
by: Stephen Campbell

Amazing words and a toucing tribute to one who was clearly loved. Brought a tear to my eye on reading this; to find such feeling at time of tragedy and and loss and to share this with others is a demonstration in itself that you are in the right place. No empathy can help you, no compassion can release your pain, but by dealing with your feelings and in people with whom you share, each day will bring an inner strength, and better will ye fair.

My mother is dying
by: Suzanne Cluff

It is hard to watch a loved one die. But watching a mother go is especially hard.
she is my biggest fan, my cheerleader, my teammate. She stuck up for me when no one else would.
she loves everyone, I have never heard her say a bad word about anyone, ever, even her ex-husband.
she always wanted us to know how much our dad loved us, and the divorce had nothing to do with us.
Her name is Billye Bugg Richards. She is still here with me, not for long, but I read this poem and it touched my heart. I am trying to prepare for her funeral, but can you ever be prepared?
