Saying goodbye to my dearest friend, Tuesday

glenda_alOctober 29, 2012

Bee, my dearest friend, age 84. We were so close, shared a lot. Her life was a wonderful, full life, and is coming to an end.

I am having my final personal visit with her just to say goodbye.

She is unaware of any visitors, but I hope she will feel my presence.

Hopefully she will be in heaven soon.

I loved her so!

I know she will feel your presence, and it's a blessing in any faith to be able to be by her side, sharing your thoughts, holding her hand during this time.

I'm sure too that all the love you've expressed is carrying her over into the other room hugs

The visit will be hard for you, Glenda. She may not be able to reply, but in case she can hear you, maybe you could remind of of a good time you had together...remember that time we..... I wonder if we will ever know how much our loved ones really understand even though they can't respond.

Many hugs for you, Glenda.

The last time I visited her, I went with friends. And I did take her a hot dog.

This time it's a one on one and know it will be the last time.

All her family were in to see her, this past weekend, with her one and only new great grandson. She was unresponsive.

Thank you all for your kind words and support.

As her son told me last night, Bee and I had a "special relationship".

I'm so sorry for your loss of your very special friend. I'm glad she was able to enjoy your last visit. Some part of her may *know* you are 'there' for her today too.

Glenda, Im so sorry you'll have such a difficult day. I remember when you visited her before and brought the hot dog. You are both so fortunate to have such a good friend in each other. I still miss a friend who died after a very long ugly illness and she requested no visitors. I wanted so badly to see her and tell her how she made my life and that of my young (at that time) daughter special. God bless you and her. Satine

Sending those special thoughts and comfort for you and the family. It is hard to say Good-Bye to any one. Good memories are aways avaiable, and don't forget to write them down for you to remember.

I had a dear aunt who was dying of cancer and also unresponsive when I visited her. The nurse told me to talk to her because hearing is one of the last senses to go.
So even though she gave no indication of knowing I was there I talked to her, and I would like to think she heard me, and that your dear friend Bee will hear you and know you are there too. Bless you for being such a good friend to her.

Oh Glenda, what a very sad day for you. You have been blessed with a dear, true life long friend. Not many people can say that. My heart aches for the pain you feel. That pain will ease in time. You will always have the most heartwarming memories.

God bless Bee's soul. I pray she goes home peacefully.
