Grieving for a friend

Today i said goodbye to a good friend who died in childbirth.(lots of complications). this has left her family and friends numb with shock. Like her other friends, we are all saying it is not real. Its unbelievable. Every time a family or friend dies, I have unanswered questions. I am actually crying now. Its just too much. she spent two weeks at my house before she went to

thank you both for your very kind words. Seems to me that this weekend is the weekend for sad news. I just got news that one of my uncles who was ailing for sometime has died.

Josie, i am so sorry to hear of the death of your husband. Words cannot express how you must feel at this time. No doubt this must be devastating news to you.

Thanks for your kind words. The timing was awful, the shock was awful, but if my husband could have picked HOW he died, he would have been OK with how it happened, but neither one of us was ready for when he died. I am attending a grief group at church and it is helping some.
I am sorry on your uncle passing, you are being hit hard all at once. Josie.

I am so glad the baby survived, It must be a little balm for the pain of losing her mommy.

You sure are going through it right now. Even when you know someone is going to pass, it never prepares you for their loss. I believe we do see our loved ones again and it comforts me.

Promise
