kayc Posted June 2, 2008 Report Share Posted June 2, 2008 (edited) I called my friend Virgie yesterday morning to see how her husband was doing and she said he was gone...she was crying so hard I couldn't understand her. I fixed her some food and went down there and spent the day with her until her daughter arrived last night from TX. She is left with no income, no money, no life insurance. We went over some options. It was a hard day...she's doing pretty well but I know there are hard times ahead. In all of this, trying to be there for her, last night I went home and realized that I miss my friend Jim too and today my body realizes it's grieving too. It's just been a long hard weekend. Today she has her daughter and a couple of other friends with her. I remember last night she ran across his favorite video game and it just hit her...I know that kind of stuff will happen a lot. God this is hard, so hard, no one should ever have to go through this. It's unbearable. There is all of the stuff he was working on, he had gotten into making jewelry, and he was going to make me some leaf earrings, and there was the horse jewelry he was working on for Janice. It's hard to understand how someone can be here and then just not. It brings back painful memories of all I have been through. I know this never ends. But it does change form and it gets somewha better. You can't take this level of intensity for very long, it's unbearable I feel like I'm rambling, I feel disjointed. I'm sorry if I don't make any sense. I don't know how I'm going to work this week. We'll have a service for him this week, I'm going to try to take the whole day off, I don't think I can work on the same day. Please pray for us...he wasn't just her husband, he's my friend too.
