Sudden Loss

There are times in our lives when we are stunned by a Sudden Loss, when our heart is aching for a family or friend who is wrought by grief.  This post is dedicated to the friends who have recently lost loved ones.

"When a sudden loss of a love one happens, we are in disbelief;
Next comes so much sorrow and grief.
Only our Lord knows his reasons why -
All we know is shock and then we cry....and cry.....and cry.

But our faith tells us our journey here is short -
We do not understand no matter how we try.

Know that your loved love is happy;
No more pain, illness or worrying what lies beyond.
As God's newest angel, eternal life is ahead.
Their journey on each has come to an end."
                                                 -- Ruth B. 2008

  2. You will remain in our thoughts and prayers for as long as needed. That's what friends in the Lord do for one another.
