  1. You know anyone stumbling upon this for the first time might think she died! 😉 But I know how hard this is for you. I’ll be thinking of you this weekend – saying goodbye is hard.

  2. I know this is real hard for you hon. Hugs… Here if you need anything.

    LOL Tricia! It FEELS like she has! Isn’t THAT weird.
    Thanks Diana.

    (((HUGS))) Love you, hon.

  5. This is such a nice tribute to an excellent friend. I’m sorry you are going through a hard time right now. I love the tag, “saying goodbye sucks ass”, it really does, but really you’re just saying “so long”. *hugs*

  6. Saying goodbye is a hard thing to do, but you’re not alone. Bryan’s aunt sent him this little piece, and I think it applies to you. Hope you find some comfort in it.
    ——————————-
    People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.
    When you know which one it is, you will know what to do for that person..
    When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed.
    They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support,
    to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend and they are.
    They are there for the reason you need them to be.
    Then, without any wrongdoing on your part or at an inconvenient time,
    this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end.
    Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away.
    Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand.
    What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on.
    Some people come into your life for a SEASON, because your turn has come to share, grow or learn. They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh.
    They may teach you something you have never done.
    They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy.
    Believe it, it is real. But only for a season.
    LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons,
    things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation.
    Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life.
    It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.
    Thank you for being a part of my life,
    whether you were a reason, a season or a lifetime.

    That’s beautiful Lucinda. Thank you so much.

  8. Just think of it as a new place to Vacation…we all need one every now and then and she’ll be there to show ya around.

    cow is right. It’s not an end–it’s a free place to stay when you go out that way. Buy yourself a ticket and head on out there.

  10. Dang it, this made me cry.

    I like Jodi’s comment (and the poem Lucinda shared–I’ve seen that before and it’s heartbreakenly true).

    A beautiful tribute. I bet poor Michelle cried a bucketful. (I know you did, too, but if this had been made for me, my whole face would be sore from crying.)

    {{{hugs for both of you and all the kids, too}}}
