We all deal with loss in different ways. It’s hard. There are so many emotions associated with it and so many feelings to feel at once… it’s completely overwhelming. And then there is that horrible realization that you will never see that loved one again. It’s difficult to swallow.

I recently lost someone who holds a special place in my heart and forever will. I know that I am not the only one who is saddened or impacted by this loss but there is peace in knowing she is resting in a place we only hope to be apart of some day. She will forever be my hero and grandmother. And not one person on this earth has even a tenth the strength and grace she had. The tears come and go, as the wound is still so fresh. And I know that just when we begin to heal a little, the holidays will hit us and we will be reminded of how enormous a loss this truly is to our family. But new traditions will be made to honor her life and love for us all.

Today another loss has saddened my family and while I was only blessed with one short meeting with her, she was such a beautiful person – both inside and out. It’s amazing how pure someone can be when in the midst of fighting a disease. How their smile can spread warmth to those near and far. And how their now absence leaves a bigger void than we imagined.

Recently my sister shared a saying someone told her.

To be absent from the world is to be present with The Lord.

There is no greater loss than that of someone you love. And it’s incredibly hard. But I take comfort in knowing that heaven has gained two beautiful angels and they will forever watch over us.

In loving memory of

    I am so sorry for your loss. It’s never easy, and you may never get over it, but I pray that the good Lord gives you the fortitude to bear this loss. Amen.
