Our family has lost another family member this week.
My cousin, Jenny, 33 years old died this week. She died peacefully and in her sleep. She had been very sick with various problems for year to the point of feeding tubes, talks of pace makers and diabetis. We are thankful that she is no longer in pain.
Our family however is in much pain. There are arguments over where she is to be buried, who decides, who pays etc. Her husband wants her with his family, her mother does not. A time when we should be reaching out to each battle lines seem to be being drawn. Please pray for Jenny's husband.
For family as they travel, Thank You.

I will pray for all of you. Hopefully, at some point, those arguing will come together for Jenny's sake. Loved your 100 things about you...very interesting and fun to find out more. I also bought the same color of Atacama Alpaca and also a blue colorway. Thanks for telling me it was on sale, I love it. Looking forward to seeing what you knit with it.

Good thoughts coming to you and your family during this difficult time. Battles make grieving more difficult, but it does seem people gravitate that way to put it off just a little. I pray your family will see past their differences and come together at this time.

Much love.

Heather - my prayers are with you and yours. As a probate paralegal, I can tell you I have seen it all. My own family the worst. Hang in there kido. Heavy hearts - sometimes can get entrenched (spelling??) in one point of view. Grief is hard on everyone. In the end, for me, I realized, it all just does not matter. Stuff is stuff, money is just that - it can't buy happiness. Where to bury?? Does Jenny really care at this point? No. she is home now and THAT is what really matters. Again, my prayers to you and yours. Love ya.

Praying for you. What Sheila said is so profound--find something to be angry with because it's so hard to rage against death itself.
