Why is it we are late on saying goodbye to friends. I have been so close to my spark friend Tara for we had so much in common. We both dreaded December because of our mothers dying in that month and other such things. We helped each other made it thru the days. Being from Canada I knew i would never meet her being I am in Iowa but we felt like sisters. Not hearing for awhile, I went to her site today to say hi and see why she hadn't been around, what a shock to learn she passed on the 27 of Feb. Tears are falling but I know she is in a good place with our Lord.

This week has been tough anyway with the back acting up and now the heart is hurting. Toall my other spark friends - Know I am close to all and love hearing your tales and the help you give me. You are all in my heart. This makes me know I need to keep up more with all of you, for life is short.

I can hear Tara saying to get on with life and work hard on getting where I want to go inmy health. I will do it for you my dear friend.

    I was not SparkFriends with Tara, but we had several overlapping friendships. It is sad to lose a friend, even a friend we may never meet. I feel closer to many of my SparkFriends than I do to some of my in-person friends. I think it's because the anonymity lends intimacy. I share things that bother me here that I wouldn't in person because I don't want to seem like moaning Myrtle about my weight or employment situation. I completely understand your loss.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I have not been a Sparkler for long but have already made some very good friends. It's funny how we can get so close to people we may never meet, but they at times they are our best friends and support system. You never know from day to day what life is going to bring, so you are so right in saying that life is short. We need to take the time to tell people that we love and appreciate them when they are here. Thanks for the gentle reminder. I'm sure Tara is smiling at you from above. emoticon
