A feeling of total sadness in our family at this time

Our family is very sad and I have been unable to think of anything else these past three days.
You see this beautiful auntie Sarah of mine in Scotland passed away on Saturday and she was taken from our family with the very same cancer that took our dad three years ago.
We feel so far away and I like my sisters and brothers and our mum just want to be there for our uncle and for their girls and grandchildren.
She is being placed today with our grandmother our grandfather our uncle jock and his wife and some of our dad's ashes too I feel so saddened that I know I walk around today and yesterday with a heavy heart.
This is a photo of Dear auntie Sarah when she came to visit out here on one of her many trips with our grandmother who lived on the Murray river in mannum were I was born.
I send my love and my prayers to my family in Scotland while we are so far apart with miles we are close within our hearts now and always.
Christmas will never be the same without the happy phone calls from Scotland from my dear Auntie Sarah
I am sorry I just cannot say anymore and will get to visit all my Friends soon.
this sadly is my Tuesday.........forever changed.

My deepest sympathy on the death of your Auntie. There are no good times for death but the Christmas season is a particularly sad time. I'll light a candle for her over at Robyn's.

My heart is breaking for the loss you are experiencing, dear Ms. Lee Ann. I know that there are no words of true comfort, no peace a human can bring, but I pray that you will feel the love and prayers of those of us who are lifting them up on your behalf.

Hello Lee-Ann, I am so sorry to hear about your auntie. I remember years ago when my grandmother died, and my mother, who had just lost her mom, was convinced we now had a special guardian angel in heaven. It doesnt take away the pain, but it does heal something I've found...

A Very Blessed, and Very Healing, New Year...Wendy
