Tomorrow is not Guaranteed

Wednesday, April 25, 2018

Three weeks to the day after my friend and coworker Amy died, her mom died. Sandra's funeral is tomorrow. Sandra was not in good health. Horribly overweight, diabetes, failing kidneys, etc. But she was loved and will be missed. She leaves behind two daughters and a grandson (Amy's 7 year old). Sandra and Charlie took care of Trey when Amy could not pick him up from school and he is very close to his grandparents. Sandra also leaves siblings and other family members. My heart just breaks for Charlie, the daughters and Trey. I met them all at Amy's funeral. The girls are sure that Mom died of a broken heart.

Life is not fair, I know, but this double loss is so terribly sad!

Two funerals in one month for one family is two too many!

As if I needed a reminder to spread love and kindness while I can...To my SP "family" - I treasure your comments, Goodies and encouragement. I rejoice in your successes and understand the speed bumps on the journey.

THANK you for sharing this wellness journey with me. You are more inspirational than you can ever know. emoticon

    So very sorry for your losses. It is unreal for a family to suffer two losses so close. But yes, a broken heart can sometimes not be mended.
