« on: January 21, 2018, 11:21:45 AM »
At this moment, I'm sitting in a darkened hospice room next to my sleeping oldest sister. She was diagnosed with an incurable cancer about 2 years ago, a bit more than a year after my husband's death from another cancer. My late husband and my two sisters were/are my best friends. Before long, it'll be down to just me and my remaining sister in my deepest friendship circle.  I'm again losing someone with a lifetime of shared history and experiences, as well. Losing LH was worse, and I know I'll see them both again, but this hard. So very hard.  :'(

sojourner,

Heartbreaking. I wish for your sister a peaceful passing, and for you continued strength as you face yet another great loss.

I am so sorry you are having to endure this sojourner.
Hugs to you
I don't want it to be his legacy that his death destroyed me.
I need to honour his life by rebuilding my life.

There was something fishy about the butler.  I think he was a Pisces, probably working for scale.

I’m so sorry you are losing your beloved sister. Hospice vigils are so tiring, too - physically and emotionally.

Sigh. There really aren’t any words.

Hugs,
