  3. Just what I needed to hear during this time of bereavement. I just lost a true friend a dear sister in Christ. I will forever remember these words. Life is too short to hold bitterness and too sweet to not hold your loved ones closer.

  4. Zariah,

    I have a dry lump in my throat.

    My condolences on the loss of your friend, even as I pray for beautiful memories of B to abound in your life.

    you endure even as you go through the grief, without, I pray, any regrets.

    May your heart find solace, my sister, in the shared friendship you both were blessed to experience.

    Praying for you, Zariah.🌹

  5. Thank you Zariah for giving words, and many tears of release, for the many varied feelings I have still for the passing of My Forever Encourager Migdalia! ‘Dayi’ It’s been over 3 years and I miss you still and know you will be forever in my heart. Thank you! 💜😘!

  6. Thank you for sharing the loss of your beautiful friend, sounds like you had a special friendship that always will be cherished.

  7. Thank you so much for “My Guardian Angel” it truly was food for my soul. I just recently had three losses within a week. Your words reminded me to remember how blessed I was to have these Guadrian Angels in my life and always will cherish their memories in my heart.

  8. In the passing of both of my parents (Mom, August 2021) and Dad (August 2022), I am slowly leaning each day to focus on the many fond loving memories. It was not always an easy journey with my Dad as his dementia took over the Dad I knew.

    I have learned everyone grieves differently and on their own time line!

    I miss you and love you Mom and Dad💕
