My friend, a loved family member, died today, early in the afternoon.
On her birthday.
She is going to be missed very much.

I'm feeling a little hollow.

Rest In Peace A.


  1. So sorry to hear that River, death is never easy for those who die or those left behind. Hugs from Perth (hoping that may help in just the smallest way) xxx

  2. I'm sorry to hear about your friend. I hope there are happy memories you can treasure.

    Thinking of you.

  3. Hard times indeed. Thinking of you over here in Canada.

  4. Kakka; thank you.

    Andrew; she'd been ill a long time, she began struggling to breathe on Saturday, she is at peace now.

    Red Nomad; Thank You, I do have memories.

    Delores; the next week will be the hardest of all I think, for the immediate family.

  5. Hi River,

    Hope you are OK. I've lost somebody close before so I know exactly how it feels.


  6. Like all your friends, thinking of you.

  7. Oh River, I'm so sorry for you and your family. The fact of it being her birthday seems ironic but also rather fitting .... new life in some form or other?

    I then scrolled down to Sunday Selections and urge you to do the same again. Your photographs there are beautiful and very appropriate for how you're no doubt feeling right now.

    Hugs to you, dear friend. K xo

  8. Another hug from Canada. XX (So sorry, River.)

  9. I'm so sorry to hear this. Losing people we love is never easy. Gentle hugs

  10. River,
    Maybe you can do something like planting a rose in memory of your friend?

    I always find ritual comforting.

    My condolences. Hug

  11. I'm very sorry to hear your sad news, River, and am thinking of you.

  12. Sad news, sorry to hear of your loss and your pain River

  13. Plasman; I'm okay. The first shock is over and this was expected for a while now.

    Joanne; thank you.

    Kath Lockett; Thank you. The hard week is ahead for the immediate family, with funeral arrangements etc. The roses seem appropriate, bare branches waiting for new growth.

    CarrieBoo; thank you.

    pesky pixies; thank you. This particular woman will be very much missed.

    drb; I'll find out what her favourite flower was, there are so many roses here already. Planting something for her would be lovely.

    Fruit Cake; thank you.

    Fenstar de Luxe; thank you.

    Tempo; thank you, the first pain has eased, but there will be many more tears at the funeral.

  14. I'm so sorry for the loss of somebody dear to you.

  15. SO sad to read this, for you and for the people who were looking forward to celebrating her birthday with her.

  16. Sarah; it's been hard for her immediate family, watching her fade away.

    Happy Elf Mom; I don't think they'd planned a birthday celebration, A has been too ill for several months.

  17. I am so sorry. For you and for everyone who loved her.
