I think they ties we build here, the friendships become so intertwined, the caring so deep- so real that when someone drops off the grid- we WONDER, we WORRYWe HOPE they are OK and just busy with LIFE, we also get fearful something Bad may have happened.Sometimes we start looking for them.... Wondering Out LOUD on the board
We did that for Alan
We did that for Dianne
We did that for Gwen
I worry, that some... who are less chatty here may slip away silently and we will never know what happenedDid they become NED, and are busy Living- going back to the World BEFORE BIG C hit their lives? We hope in our Heart of Hearts YES... Please Be TRUE
We also wonder if the opposite is true and it bothers us. Worrying about Family & Friends is Normal behavior
Unfortunately we also have the abnormal... BIG C hanging there as a common bond
That is where the Worry for our dear friends comes from.
I am the Caregiver, and odds are I will be here and posts throughout hubby's experience. Sadly IF it happens I am the one who leaves this world first....
Hubby will more than likely NOT be coming here to say what happened.
Now that you have brought this up, I will give my password to my sons....like insurance... I will be covered
As far as others here may be concerned.... I think it is just like everything else hereI think it depends on the person, I think it will change as easily as the direction of the wind- it will change with the blink of an eye
We have heard many friends expressing last journeys of their loved ones & in answering some, I hope I have helped them while their hearts were breaking, given them strength to endure the unthinkable
I am grateful for Gwen's sisters post, Alan's friends post, Marcos own brave posts, Chixter's post, Val & Kathleen
, etc (Far too many & like a never-ending tidal-wave)
Although heartsick on the final posts- it eased my mind from worry about the unknown....
I knew these beautiful dear friends were in pain no more, and I hope my sincere condolences brought a smidgen of comfort to those left behind
I also find joy in sending Marco postcards
to fulfill his wishes and thinking about the hundreds he now has- is truly heartwarming
It endures me to this Colon Cancer Family even more, to know we made someone happy by fulfilling his wish
YEP..... I will be hunting for you....me and a zillion others
Bev G » I know I would be very comforted to know that people are thinking of me, wishing me well, and praying for me if they are so inclined. I have connections here that ate very important to me, I would like to know I will be remembered until it's just no longer time to remember...
Best wishes to all,
