Gut Rumbles

June 30, 2005


One of the bad things about growing old is seeing people die around you. Death may be just the final chapter in your life, but knowing that fact doesn't make it any easier for people who love to you handle.

If you care about somebody, that person's death ALWAYS leaves a void in your soul that you can never fill. Time lessens the grief, but the void never goes away. A part of YOU is missing forever, and you can't replace it with anything else.

I was not aware of this. I guess I haven't visited her site in a while. I knew that SHE had a real fight on her hands, but I didn't know that her husband was so ill. MommaBear, you have my deepest sympathy.

Just damn!


Thanks, Rob !! The void and grief started a long way back, so now it was just the inevitable.

The kind words from real friends mean a lot to MB !!

I attempted to leave condolences but was told I was ver boten....Not the first time I have been kicked out of someplace however, and I am sure it wont be the last....

My condolences to Mommabear.

Often a voice of reason amongst the howling in the dark of the moonbats.

There have never been words written to ease the pain of the loss of a loved one.

If those words had been written, I would repeat them.

Condolences all around. The one startling truth is: Nobody's getting out of this world alive.

That is quite sad. And I notice Terry Reynolds left a comment, and he with left than two weeks himself.

Yeah, I saw that too, then had to go.... rather quickly.
(And, he actually had 8 days left then. Read the obit in the local Wichita newspaper. Haven't heard back from his brother yet, either.... )

And, MB, you have my sympathies also.

I think I officially hate the month of June now.

Rob's post was my first knowledge of MB's sadness. Her comment "The void and grief started a long way back," says it all. God be with you in this awful time that I, too, have experienced, Mommabear. Heartfelt prayers in your direction.
