Missing Bea

Thank you to all readers who sent emails of condolence. Today’s blog is about recovery. Karyn wants to know how I am faring. The answer is as well as can be expected. The house seems very empty. Even when Bea was asleep, we felt her presence. My brother called this evening to say he has not been able to concentrate at work this week, so I guess he is grieving, too. My daughters call to see how I am. Losing someone who played such a large part in one’s life for 60 years turns out to be a bit more complicated than I anticipated ...

I am certain Bea is still there with you. We can never anticipate how something like this will feel or how we will handle things when it happens. Your time with her at the end has probably both contributed to the difficulty and helped you in handling her absence in some ways. I hope you will continue to keep all your wonderful memories in your heart and mind. Please take care.

I haven't checked in here for a while, but here I am today, finding out how much has changed in your lives. I envy your stamina, your compassion, your caring. You gave your mom the greatest gift -- making her last months not just bearable, but sweet. Bless you.

It always does.

Hit you in ways you can't anticipate , that is.

Sorry to be absent of late - illness strikes the midcape!

Going to catch up now -
