    In Remembrance of Our Dear Friend Buck

    Words would seem so trite to try to respond to your grief Katie. I hope with all my heart that a time will come when you will feel able to cook a special meal just as you did for Buck and take it out on the back porch to eat it, knowing that he is so very close to you. I salute your courage and...

    Planning For Our Final Destination

    We live in the UK but the principles are the same. We've already made our wills. They are made in such a way that Social Services cannot force either partner to sell the home to pay for Care if it's needed. We have insurance which will cover the cost of funerals. We have both chosen the readings...

    Posting how I feel right now, after Buck's passing.

    In Blackwater Woods Look, the trees are turning their own bodies into pillars of light, are giving off the rich fragrance of cinnamon and fulfillment, the long tapers of cattails are bursting and floating away over the blue shoulders of the ponds, and every pond, no matter...

    My thoughts and prayers are with you all. "all mankind is of one author, and is one volume; when one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language; and every chapter must be so translated; God employs several translators; some pieces are translated by...

    In Remembrance of Our Dear Friend Buck

    In the midst of this heartache I am just so glad that you all had time to be with Buck and say everything you wanted to say. " May the choirs of Angels come to greet him and lead him to paradise; May the Lord enfold him in his mercy and grant him eternal rest"

    That was a beautiful and sensitive gesture on the part of the nurse. Something of such significance can be an enormous support. Words For It by Julia Cameron I wish I could take language And fold it like cool, moist rags. I would lay words on your forehead. I would wrap words on your wrists...

    In Remembrance of Our Dear Friend Buck

    It seems so unreal. You and your family must be truly shocked and traumatised by such a sudden and rapid turn of events. Thank God your family are with you at this time. Your real family, and in spirit, your DC family. It's so good to know that Buck is aware of those around him and that he can...

    There's nothing left to say Katie, words just don't cover it but the thoughts are non stop and each one is a kind of prayer for Buck, you, and all the family.

    It's so good to 'hear your voice' again and so generous hearted of you to try to send news in the midst of all your stress and heartache. May you both be born up and strengthened by the tidal wave of loving support that has been expressed here.

    Buckytom, help, now what do I do?

    Being a complete plonker I think I've ticked the wrong box in this new 'friendship invitation' so it will look like I've refused :ohmy: Your picture hasn't come up on the list thing so I think I've got it wrong. Sorry. I'm such an idiot. :rolleyes:

    In Remembrance of Our Dear Friend Buck

    Sometimes I think that the professionals (i.e. hospital staff) are so busy doing their job they have no time to think how stressful it is for relatives. Not being able to get the info is the worst kind of stress. I'll never forget, when DH was in surgery a year ago, I called to ask how the...

    Don't be afraid. The strength will come to you from He who has promised that you will never be asked beyond your strength. It may not feel like it just now, but it will. In the last 8 months I have seen our neighbour become totally transformed into a valiant, courageous and totally loving and...

    Prayers and info please!

    Reading this about your son brought tears to my eyes. You must be so proud of him. Try to stand back and let him do what he feels he should even though it's causing you such anguish. "Let go and let God" sounds such a hackneyed phrase sometimes but it is true. You're not alone in this Dawn...

    The "Be My Friend" thing is confusing me a little. I know that the give karma is to let someone know when you really 'go along' with their feelings etc. The thing about the " Be My Friend" is that here at DC we already know how warm hearted and caring everyone is. I cannot , or rather don't know...
