Life and Death

My best friend lost her Husband yesterday.  I can't be with her during this time of sorrow.  My words are all that can comfort her today.  This is the way it is.  He had not been well for along time but that doesn't ease the sorrow.  He wasn't the easiest person to get along with but that doesn't ease the sorrow. He is going to a better place, but that doesn't ease the sorrow.  The only thing that can ease the sorrow is time. Time to dig up all the hurt feeling, the unkind words, the isolation that illness brings.  Time that can bury the past and time that can relearn laughter.  Hang tough my friend brighter days are ahead............Hugs, DIANE

No matter the what or why, it's a loss. Sounds like a new beginning for both of them. Stay close to your friend any way you can. She'll need that. Time to heal....
