Lost A Good Friend

secsteveOctober 23, 2005

Our friend, Lisa, lost her battle with breast cancer after a 3 year battle yesterday. I'm still crying even while typing this. I'm relieved that she's no longer suffering, but am terribly grief stricken. She was only 40 and one the most genuine, caring people I've ever known. She house sat for us a number of times and the animals adored her. She gave nicknames to two of our animals, Miss Thang, and Mr. Mugs and give our Bubba his middle name, Leon.

Her mom called us and left a message on the machine on Friday and when I called back, put the phone up to Lisa's ear so she could hear me talk. She then came back on and said Lisa opened her eyes and gave a faint smile so Judy (mom) knew Lisa heard me.

I lost both my mother and mother-in-law 7 years ago 12 days apart and feel like my heart is being torn out again. I just feel like I'm losing everyone around me too early. I know it's normal to feel this way, but I still hate it.

How sad your loss is. I'm glad you got to say a few words to her before her passing. We all grieve over losing family members, but is is very rough to lose friends as well. They mean so much to us. Take care.

When I was 13, I lost my mother and my aunt(who lived with us) in the same year, just a couple of months apart. I lost my aunt to brain cancer and my mother to a brain aneurysm. It was a really hard and overwhelming time for me and I also felt that everyone around me was dying.
Now three years later I'm doing a lot better. It really helps just to talk to people about it. I'm sorry that you lost a good friend but everything happens for a reason and don't be afraid to let your grief out. Time really does heal, just not enough.

I'm so sorry about the loss of your dear friend. She sounds like a wonderful person. I hope that you can find solace through remembering her kind spirit and true friendship to you. It's always so hard to lose those whom we love, but in time, even though we miss them sorely we also smile and become so thankful that we ever had them in our lives.
Bless you!
