View Full Version : My Heart Is So Heavy

09-25-2009, 04:26 AM
I have been doing this weeks Progressive scrap for week 4 about my Best Friend in my early teens years who died of Leukemia and this is what I found when I went to my home town newspaper today.

Oh My God my Heart is so heavy with Grief right now I am just lost for words. I was so thinking of Mary Ellen's Mom on the 23rd of September and even called my Mom to talk to her about her death 42 years ago and when I went to the Daily Globe today I saw her Mom also called Mary well there was her Obituary and she died 42 years to the Day her only daughter died.

I have cried and cried and still crying for the loss of a very dear and wonderful woman and one who's friendship I have treasured over the years. I never lost touch with Mary Ellen's Mom. My Family would drop in to visit when we were in Rushmore. I know she is in Heaven with all those who went before her and what a celebration there must be. Oh if I could have just hugged her one more time and told her one more time how much she meant to me over the years. But I know she knows.

And honey that is the important thing "She knows" time is always too short to not let someone know how you feel about them, you must have been a great treasure to her too to have kept in touch all those years. I feel for you and will keep you in my prayers.
Perhaps maybe her heart wept so much at the grief of losing her child so many years ago that it just gave her away to Heaven Hun. Take comfort in the hope that they are now together, reunited.

Many Hugs

Despite your grief I hope you finish the LO of your friend.It is such a tribute to her & to your love for her. I stared at your friends photo for a long time even before I saw this post..There is just something about this photo that triggers something in me. Perhaps of the era_ which is mine. Perhaps because she looks alot like my sister did back then.I wondered why such a beautiful girl dies & here I am.Made me feel very grateful for all God has given me. Made me want to go right out & hug all my grandchildren. I too am grieving now for all that life brings us that is sad.
