You are reading page 14 of RE: aknottedyarn......please read.. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

I picked up other son on Mon night. He had been visiting down south while he was in the states. Daughter is due in on Thurs. Ashes arrived yesterday and now I am feeling better. I had promised to care for his ashes and not having them was hard. Still no word from autopsy.

Today I started baking for Sat. In our family it is mandatory that banana bread be served for every large meal so today 8 loaves done. Seoul Son is great cook and baker so it is great to have the extra hands and heart here.

Son I am staying with designed the program for Mike's service. It turned out beautiful. Mike's sister and Mom are having a hard time but continue to be supportive of me. If I ask about something for the service they just let me know that they trust whatever I choose as they know devoted Mike and I were to simple and meaningful. More people are planning to come to the service than I anticipated. I look forward to seeing people I have not seen in many years. They knew Mike a long time ago and have never forgotten him.

I get through each day. There are times when I want to scream about the unfairness of it but as my sister reminded me, life is not fair. I hold on to the fact that Mike was a much better teacher than he ever knew. I continue to learn the lessons that he lived by.

Your hugs reach me in the darkest hours. I can sit and read and re-read your love and caring. You hold me from afar. Thank you again for your compassion. I treasure it.

(((((((((((AKY ))))))))))))) Yowm, banana bread (drool).

Gee my mom never told me life was SUPPOSED TO BE unfair til I was in my 20's. I felt so betrayed. I still do forget though and bemoan the fact sometimes.

I am so glad you have such a close relationship w/ your family. I know that you are being a tremendous support to them, too.

God bless you hon.

more than any other day, feel and embrace his presence.

nothing to draw a loved one close, like being surrounded by all those who loved and cherished him.

{{{{{{AKY}}}}}}}} So proud of you and what you are going through. Mike would be so proud of you, carrying on his memories and making plans for your and your families future.

I can remember when my father passed and my mother was having a hard time dealing with everything. One of my aunts on my mothers side started having problems (her husband was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer). My mother went down and helped her and I know that helped my mom turn that corner. You won't degrade Mikes memory by helping your family, in fact I am sure that he is happy that you are there for them.

Keep eating and keep healthy. In fact make sure you take care of yourself while taking care of others. My prayers will continue for you and yours.

Sonya

[/grace, i have been very blessed with love and continue to feel the power of the love of all this community whenever i check in.

all of you comfort me in this time of sorrow. thank youquote]

we all deserve to be loved and comforted and supported, especially in time of great need and grief such as you are now experiencing.

my experience is that particularly, as women , we somehow instinctivly know how to provide all that and more.

moreso perhaps because we are nurses. :)

either way, none of us is an island and we can fly only by embracing each other.

and this community here on an ... is the essence of decency, compassion, integrity and love for a fellow human being!

the humanity is tangible, even via the computer!

you are in my thoughts and prayers ((((aky))))
