It is sad story. I think that you are chosen as god's hands to help her, listen her and extend your arms around her.
just sit next to her, listen her are big consoration. Hope that you are ok. I'll call you sometime soon.


Powerful insight, Susan. I certainly don't understand too much about death, but I have been with many family members when they died or were near death. I have to tell you that it was always a sacred experience. Read my account in my life stories about the death of my mother. I am no longer afraid of death because of the experience surrounding the passing of my mother. Those who go on before us are near us more than we think and they give us hope, strength and support. Your neighbor is certainly experiencing more than her share of sorrow, and I am sure she will be grateful for your friendship during the months to come. You are such a good person!


This was beautiful. I love how you compare dying to coming in from playing in the snow. As I have sat with loved ones in their final days I believe it is peaceful for them. Thank you for sharing this.

Susan, what a beautiful message for all of us to ponder and receive comfort from/ Thank you fo sharing your thoughts and your love and kindness.


Beautiful, Susan.


Oh Susan, I am so sorry to hear of your neighbor's passing. I don't quite know what to say, I'm in shock just thinking of the hardship this family has gone through and what is still to come. Again, I feel blessed to have the problems I have.
