I'm Feeling REALLY Sad!

Friday, September 28, 2012

Just a quick blog to share my sorrow with my friends. On September 25th, I lost another cousin to cancer. I have to say that I am glad that I did get to spend a few hours with him on August 27th, his 69th birthday, while he was in the emergency room. Sadly, he didn't really know me most of the time because the medication he was on for his chemo caused him to be delusional. I next spent a little time with him after our Massachusetts Spark Rally, when he was back in the hospital. He was always helping others out whenever he could. When my Dad crossed over, 17 years ago, my Dad's elderly cousin from Canada wanted to come to the funeral, so my cousin Armand paid for his trip. He shall be greatly missed, along with the rest of his family.

L to R: Jeannette, left in 1983 at 42 yrs; Therese, left in 2009 at age 62; my Aunt Alice, left in 1976 at age 55; my Uncle Existe, left in 1995 at age 74; Armand, left in 2012 at age 69. They are now all gone.

RIP my dear cousin.

But, what else is making me really sad is that 13 years ago, my beautiful Ginger, the love of my life, crossed over and I'm still struggling with that loss.

RIP my beautiful girl.

I'm sorry, for writing such a downer of a blog, but I just needed to share with my friends. I know in due time, I'll be fine once again.

Thanks for always being there. You can't imagine how very special you all are to me.

  just got to read this - a very big hug to you - it's so sad to see entire families passed away and gone isn't it? And Ginger too, she looks like such a welcoming person. Thank God for good memories - and more to come.
Thanks for sharing

    I'm sorry to be such a late comer to this blog but I just happened across it tonight. I'm sorry for your loss, Ruby, it's the hardest thing in the world, losing your loved ones. And it never seems to get any easier, even tho you know they are going to a better place and that you will see them again. That's not a lot of comfort in the meantime. God bless, sparky bud.

    Awhhh heart aches for yours! emoticon When we lose the ones we adore it's just rough! It reminds us how precious each day is and that we need to be true to ourselves and make EACH and EVERY one count for every possible goal we want to achieve.

It's so easy to get side tracked by the every day...stay strong dear one and know that you are loved! emoticon emoticon

    It really is sad to see so many of our family leave us. It's hard at my age, but I can only imagine the older we get the more often we have to say good-bye. I love you, Mom.

    Ruby, We have these times and we need support through them as well as sharing our victories.

So sorry for your loss. I think the saddest thing about aging is losing those we love. We only have so many fans in our club and when one leaves us it is difficult.

Be kind to yourself.

    No need to apologize. That's what friends are for. Sometimes it makes you feel better just to say what is bothering you.

Make This a Great Weekend!
