this sure is painful for me too! I hurt a lot because of this person who I don't even know Only that if she had friend so good as you she herself must have been the BEST ! I will continue to include you in my prayers that God will give YOU strength and call on Him when you feel weak. "LET GO LET GOD" is my affirmation that heals me. Keep it going babetoo. Know that people love and care about how you have pain we share your pain. Wish I could let you know the Everlasting arms are around you. He will handle things from here. Daughter or no daughter. Is she taking care of the cats? They probably wonder why she doesn't come home?

she is down to five cats, had one old on put to sleep. she is trying to give three away and just have two. says she can't afford it. she has the use of wallies money, but that is her choice. if wallie had any savings they are gone now.

i will miss wallie more than i can tell you. 46 years is a long time for a friendship.

thanks to all for good wishes.

Your posts bring tears to my eyes and seems I seldom cry as I have been hurt so much in this life. I only hope you are taking care of yourself and your family (cats). I can relate to people who love animals the best. Just know God will bring you out of this season of despair. (Afraid to get talking about faith). Even my psychiatrist tells me I am too much on spiritual thinking! Gosh did that hurt. Keep in touch babetoo please know my thoughts are right there w/you and just have to come to computer to know I am here!

i am heart broken . her daughter continues to be a idiot. i know she is in denial but the truth is the truth.

i thank you all for all your support during this long drawn out thread.
As you know, you and your friend have been in my heart, and in my thoughts for a while now. I am truely sad that the situation is, what it is. We can't change that, no matter how much we want.

I do hope your friend gets the best care possible, and anytime you need someone to be available to talk to, or stress out to, I am your friend. Just send a PM.

Your Pal,

Bob

I am still praying for Wallie and for you. Also for her daughter, for clarity and sensitivity.

We are all here for you Babe, no matter what.

I'm so sorry, Babe. Hard to believe her daughter is literally burying her while she's still alive!

I've been through this nightmare of my parents' end of life, but we managed to savor every moment with them.

Still praying for you, Babe, and for Wallie. Sending you hugs.

thanks june. the hospital has completed it's job to write my friend off. with the brain injury they caused and now the drugs they are giving her, she is reduced to a vegetable.

she doesn't know anyone, including her daughter. i am resigned that i will never see my friend again. everything reminds me of her. my wind chimes were a gift from her so when i hear them, i think of her. she gave me a hummingbird feeder for my birthday. such a thoughtful person. when i bake cupcakes i think of her. she gave me the silicone pans. .

pray that wallie will go peacefully , she might as well be dead, in the condition she is in. there is not hope it will ever get better.

babe, treasure the wind chimes and Hummingbird feeder..She is lucky to have a friend who loves her as you do. I know how this hurts and I pray for the three of you each day. I'll pray that the LORD watches over her and does what he thinks best. Hold her memory close babe she loved you as you love her.
