Today December 5 was a dear blogger – Willba’s memorial service. I know not many of you knew that I ever visited Mud Treasures space. But I did I was in awe with her gusto for life and her ability to overcome so many obstacles. I was really in shock that a miracle didn’t occur and that she didn’t win this battle. Sigh! She was reallly a great inspiration to a lot of us. She will be missed.
Coincidentally, today was also the day that a long time family friend was laid to rest after he too succumbed to cancer. Death I realized is no easier if you are not as close to some one or if it is someone that you have known for your whole life. Death reminds you of those who have already gone and allows you a moment to cherish the time that was, when they were around and life was different.
As I write this I fondly remember a dear friend, someone I knew since he was 1 and I was 5. December 24 would be 1 year since he gave up on life. Christmas will forever be odd for my family and his.
So I remember with fondness knowing full well that the ache of missing may dull with time, but honestly will never go away!
Goodbye my friends, rest in peace!
