Jan 16th 1977 TO March 1st 2014 Nicole was 37 years old.
Nicole passed away on March 1st. We were able to comply with her wish of dying in her own home. She was surrounded by people who cared for her and loved her.
Even though she was terminal, her end of time was a great surprise. I would not wish her a second longer on this planet. The cancer had invaded her stomach so eating and even drinking had become almost impossible without a consequence.
My husband and I are forever changed by this whole experience. We are now trying to find a new "normal" so we are in a bit of a transition. We have promised each other to get healthy so I know I will be back Sparking and in full swing in just another couple of weeks.
Thank you all for your kind words, support and words of wisdom.
We found this on our daughters phone after she had passed. I was struggling for something for her memorial card. We printed this on the back of her cards.
Oh, please don’t feel guilty
It was just my time to go.
I see you are still feeling sad,
And the tears just seem to flow.
We all come to earth for our lifetime,
And for some it’s not many years,
I don’t want you to keep crying
You are shedding so many tears.
I haven’t really left you
Even though it may seem so
I have just gone to my heavenly home,
and I’m closer to you than you know.
Just believe that when you say my name,
I’m standing next to you,
I know you long to see me,
But there’s nothing I can do.
But I’ll still send you messages
And hope you understand,
That when your time come to
“cross over,” I’ll be there
to take your hand.
