Loosing relationships

Recently, there was a beautiful tribute on Amy’s blog about a dear friend of hers. I was touched, as I usually am by these tributes, but more so because I had recently lost a dear friend also. Unfortunately, today I will attend the wake of yet another friend that has just passed away. I will keep the tribute to both of them in my heart forever, but I’m having more trouble than usual dealing with these losses than I have with past losses. I don’t know why.

The friend that just past away most recently, has a daughter in a wheelchair. His wife is now left to tend to the daughters every need without the help and support of her loving husband. This, to me, is even more heart breaking.

I guess I’m writing this post as a kind reminder to myself of the value of friendships. More than likely though, it’s probably a way for me to grieve. I can’t be sure though as I’m in a kind of haze still.

I do know that when someone we care about leaves this world, a piece of us leaves with them. I guess two parts of me are in the process of leaving.

To my two friends that have left too soon, remember me, as I am all too sure that I will remember you. Keep that part of me with you because there will always be your part to play in my heart forever.

Rest in peace.


  1. I am sorry I am just now reading this- my thoughts are with you and with the families of those who lost someone...
