Merry Christmas 2010

Another Christmas come and gone.  As much joy as Christmas brings, I felt none of it.  It's wonderful having the teenager home for the Holidays, but I'm numb.  Not numb, broken.  When a parent passes after a long and wonderful life, you can continue on.  After losing my brother Johnny, my heart is broken.  A part of me is missing.  I have never felt so empty with sadness.

I'm so sorry to hear about your brother. My thoughts are with you.

Snap said...

Oh, Ro. Bless your heart. Hugs my dear.

Ro can I do anything? Remember the whole process was terribly draining on your mind, body and spirit. You were so strong for both Johnny and Jim. Let yourself recover. It's okay to be sad. Much love and a big hug. <3 ooxxoo

I'm really so very sorry. The holidays just amplifies things like this, I know.

Words cannot describe how very much pain I feel for you Rosemary. I am just glad that I could be there with you during your loss. I know that words cannot bring him back....but may the memories that you have of your brother live in your heart forever. I know that losing Johnny has left you broken hearted, but may it comfort you to know that he is happy now and with your Mom and Dad and will be eternally happy in heaven with God.
Your loving Sister-in-law,
Mary Jane

I wish I had the words to comfort you, my dear friend. It is hard I know, I really do.

I hope that the happy memories you have of your brother will be the first ones that you will remember, given time. I think that he would want you to remember the best of times.

Be gentle with yourself, and take good care.

Love and peace to you and to your family.

I can't even imagine how horrible it all has been for you. I know how much Love I have for me brother and the thought of losing him is horrific. I am so very sorry for your pain. I wish I could hug you and make it all go away.

I am so sorry for your loss and pain. I know what it feels like to loose a sibling- it hurts so very much! He will be with you always. So many times I will be thinking of my sister and then a song she loved will play on the radio...makes me smile every time
Thinking of you and your family...{hugs}

Oh, my dear friend, how my heart aches for you. I just want to wrap you in the coziest blanket, accompanied by a few hugs, warm tea, and whatever will help restore you. Alas, I think only the memories and time will help, but we are here.

“Here’s to the bright New Year, and a fond farewell to the old; here’s to the things that are yet to come, and to the memories that we hold.” Never let go of those memories, dear Rosa!! I've been thinking so much about you and I know how hard it is to get through the days, let alone the holidays, when you've just lost a loved one. Know that I'm thinking of you. xoxox

I know how close you were and how caring your are. I can only hope the pain you must be feeling subsides in time and Johnny's life story becomes legend in your family. I love you so much.
