Topic: Good bye my sister

My youngest sister lost her battle to this disease on the 3 July 2012 - just a short 6 months from the time she was diagnosed. She fought strong and hard but the chemo had no effect and she chose to spend her last three months enjoying what precious time she had. Despite all that was going on for her she always had a smile for her two daughters aged 12 and 7 years old whom she leave behind. We are going to miss her she was only 43 and had so much ahead of her. It's going to take so much to make sense of this and i pray that one day a cure will be found to beat this disease.
Thank you for the kind people on this site who understand what we go through.

Dearest BAP, I am so very sorry to hear this about your Sister. Please accept my heartfelt condolences to you and your Family.

Letter from Heaven  by Ruth Ann Mahaffey

To my dearest family some things I'd like to say
But first of all to let you know that I arrived okay,
I'm writing this from Heaven. Here I shall dwell with God above
Here, there's no more tears of sadness. Here is just eternal love.
Please do not be unhappy because I'm out of sight
Remember that I am with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through
God picked me up and hugged me and He said "I welcome you,
It's good to have you back again,
you were missed while you were gone,
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
God gave me a list of things that he wished for me to do
And foremost on the list was to watch and care for you
And when you lie in bed at night, the days chores put to flight
God and I are closest to you . . in the middle of the night.
When you think of my life on earth and all those loving years
Because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears
But do not be afraid to cry, it does relieve the pain
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.
One thing is for certain though my life on earth is o'er
I'm closer to you now than I ever was before.
There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb
Together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
When you're walking down the street and you've got me on your mind
I'm walking in your footsteps, only half a step behind
And when it's time for you to go . . from that body to be free
Remember you're not going . . you're just coming here to me.

Dear BAP,

I am so sorry to hear of your dear sister's passing.  There are no words that I can think of that will comfort you at this time other then to say to hang onto your happy memories of your sister.

I'm so sorry for your truest condolences to you and your family! Will pray for all of you!!!

Re: Good bye my sister

I too am sorry to hear you have lost your dear sister.  Nothing about this disease makes any sense and losing someone so quickly is not easy.  Try to take some comfort in knowing that atleast she is no longer suffering or in pain.  Keep her with you forever in your heart and memories.   You and your family have my deepest sympathy and understanding.

Love & Hugs,

Dear BAP

I'm so very sorry to hear your sister has died.  I lost my sister, too, 6 weeks ago and it hurts so much.  You are very much in my thoughts.  Please keep coming back and let us know how you are.  This is such an amazing site, full of such incredibly supportive people who DO understand.

Dear Bap,

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your sister. Please accept my sincere condolences. I lost my dad to this cancer back in 2009 and I feel the pain you have right now. Please know that we are all here for you and my thoughts are with you and your family right now.

Re: Good bye my sister

My heart breaks for you.  To have been so young and have to leave the children behind.  My Mom passed after only 1 chemo treatment having been diagnosed 6 months earlier.  I will pray for you and the family.

Re: Good bye my sister

I am very sorry for your loss. My daughter, Lauren is battling this terrible disease. I understand what you have been through, but cannot imagine the sadness you must feel now. All I know is that there are so many wonderful people in Heaven. They must be having one heck of a great time. Take comfort in knowing your dear Sister is at peace. I know this doesn't heal your pain. I am sure it is very difficult to not see your sister anymore. But I believe she is still around you and her daughters. Take care and God bless you.

Love, -Pam

My beautiful daughter, Lauren Patrice, will live on in my heart forever.
