I am a bit out of sorts at the moment...as I just got word that my 15 month old cousin Daisy died in a car accident...
She is my aunt Monica’s grand-daughter...and although I had not had the chance to meet her it is still upsetting...the holidays are fast approaching and this kind of news is not very welcoming...last Christmas my 21 yr old cousin Brandon passed away and some of the family still hasn’t come to accept or come to terms with that....although I didn’t know Brandon and Daisy...they are still my family and I still feel a loss....I am feeling bad for my aunt Lorraine who has to deal with the one year anniversary of her son’s death and for my aunt Monica for the recent loss of her grand=daughter...

This brings me to my own feelings on death and the loss of a loved one...I also have had personal losses of my own....seems the past 2 years I have experienced the loss of close friends and family...I am wondering why so many deaths in such a short time...I even went through a time where I was afraid that I was going to be next...I couldn’t sleep...as I was afraid I would not wake up....yes these past couple of years has been hard on me...and I think it is time that I acknowledge these beautiful people and celebrate the time however short that I was able to spend with them...

Tom
A very good friend that I had met online and we had fast grown to become very close friends...he had been away in Iraq for some time and had just return to the US only to die in a motorcycle accident a short time later...I miss him dearly...

Crystal
My friend and long time roommate...she passed away spring of 2007 from complications of diabetes...she was a part of my family and like a daughter to me and we all miss her...especially me...

Kim
A friend that I met on the internet and had the chance of meeting in person...she passed away August 07...we were very close friends and she too was like a part of my family...One very special lady she was...

Lili
My Baby Sister Lili who passed away August 07...We are all still trying to cope with the loss of a beautiful mother...daughter....sister...aunt...our Sweet Lili.

Josephine
My aunt and Godmother....died of cancer May 08

Bernice
My aunt and very close close friend passed away July 08...she suffered 4 yrs with her illness...and now she is in a safe place where she will no longer hurt in any more...

I know I have to quit hanging on and let go...and I am hoping this is my year to do so...time to let go and get on with my life...

New Update
Well I am sorry to say the news I received was not accurate...It seems little Daisy was in an accident and had been flown out to another hospital...has been on life support and today is going to be pulled off the life support machines as the doctors don’t see a chance of recovery...still a sad situation...

    • Karyn, what a wonderful way of celebrating the lives that each of these special family members and friends lived.
      You have had great loss in the last couple of years. Sometimes you wonder why and if you can continue on. You have and you are awesome!

    • Karyn,  

      I am so sorry to hear of your loss, over the past few years, and so very recently.  We all need to find our own ways to grieve the loss of loved ones.  And it appears you have found a Wonderful way to remember the Inspiring Lives of these great people.  

      I have realized that greiving is a process, and remembering and cherishing what those you have lost, meant to you, taught you, gave you, in whatever way. Short time, long time, large ways, or Small ways, is a gift. When we remember them,( instead of stuffing them and not talking about them because its too painful as some try to do ) we can begin to heal, and always remember what they gave.  

      Meshell.
