Will Always Remember You

I am thinking of my
sister lately,
as her husband just
passed away.
 
 
In my heart I mourn
for my sister's
sadness.  To endure
such a great loss
leaves an emptiness that
will always be.
 
These are roses that
I've seen around town,
and they are for you,
dear sister.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Your family is in my
thoughts every day.

Oh Sheri. My heart goes out to your sister. I cannot even begin to imagine losing one's spouse. May the Lord surround her with His angels and fill her heart with peace until she and her beloved meet again.

I love your "Milagro." Susan p.s. Thanks for all your sweet visits.

And that wonderful pink bloom has tears of grief....but your sister is blessed to have you my great friend. Grief is painful, a constant shadow. My parents died 29 years ago this summer, and every mother and father's day, I hurt.

But such is life. And there's nothing we can do about it but love to eternity.

Dear Sheri,
My heart is saddened, and with your sister and you today... I will keep her in my prayers.
Having you there, standing strong for her, as you are, will help more than you know. She is blessed to have you in her life.
Sending you a hug
Penny

A lovely post and photos that reflects your thoughtfulness. I am so sorry to hear of your sisters loss and hope that she may find solace through family and friends.

Dear Sheri,
I'm so sorry to hear this. Your gift of sending roses to your sister, showing you are thinking of her and will be, tells her as much as the words I'm sure you've said.

Sisters are such a blessing. I aways regretted that we only had one daughter. She loves her brothers and has many girlfriends but a sister is a special relationship.

It's me said...

Love you my dear Sheri....my prayers are for your sister and you love Ria...x!
