And she’s gone

Yesterday, holding her hand as she struggled to breathe, my sister looked up and said, “Oh look! An angel just fell through the ceiling!”

Just got the call.

It’s over. She’s gone.

Autocorrect typed she’s “fine.”

I hope she’s that, too. After so, so much struggle. Her whole life, really.

Go with the Angels, Noreen.

    Oh Dee. I am soo sorry for this loss, for the layers of feelings to move through. May you find peace, know comfort and bask in the love and care of your friends (near and far) and family. I think of you with deep love and friendship. xo

    First and last – only love.
    Second – what an exquisite Memorial pouch.

    (I recall that with each close human death-father, mother, lovers, friends and companion animals-of the past 76 years, I felt grief and relief as one.)

      Thank you Saskia. K and I picked up her ashes today. They’re in the other room under a glass star and some of her crystals.
