Sadness

Hi everyone, I haven't been online much in the last week or so - on June 17th, I lost my best friend suddenly.  She had a heart attack while on vacation in Tennessee, and never recovered.


Taken on a fabric acquisition trip

I miss her more than I can say.  We've talked almost every day for the last 16-17 years - she was family to me.  Please pray for her kids.

Needless to say, there's been no sewing going on.  I've been trying to help the kids clean out her house so they can sell it.  Her kids are amazing - I couldn't be prouder of them if they were my own.

See you soon.
Love,
Allie

I read your post with sadness of sitting right where you are sitting....I also lost two of my closest friends several weeks ago. We seem to have shifted our season of life to now we are losing our friends. So thankful for knowing the Lord and these dear ones did as well......so when sadness overtakes, I have to remind myself of a reunion yet to come and be grateful for the precious memories that I can carry with me. May the Lord give you peace and comfort during these days.

My deepest sympathy on the loss of your best friend. You took a great picture of her and I love how you got in the picture with her (your reflection in the mirror). It is so nice of you to help her kids clean out her house. That is not an easy job, but I am sure it has been a big comfort to them. I will keep you and her family in my prayers.

Dearest Allie, You know you have been in my prayers from when you first told me about it. All you have to do is email me dear one and I will respond. We will get through our losses together. So here is something that might bring just a bit of an upturn to your lips. I am off now to clean up the corpses of the carpenter ants in my bathroom. That is one loss I do not mind! I am here. Abba is with you.

Jocelyn said...

Allie, my heart goes out to you,because I lost my very best friend 16 years ago, and I still miss her like crazy. It really leaves a huge hole in your heart. My heartfelt sympathy to you and her family.

As many others have said, we never get over it because they will always be with us in memories. Memories are bittersweet right now but cherished and oh so sweet later. What a lovely photo. May God comfort you and her family and other loved ones. Take care and grieve your loss-we understand. "Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted" Matt 5:4 "He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds" Psalm 147:3 Hold onto to those promises from out Heavenly Father. xoxoxoxoxo
