Irish,

Death is nothing at all.
It does not count.
I have only slipped away into the next room.
Everything remains as it was.
The old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged.
Whatever we were to each other, that we are still.
Call me by the old familiar name.
Speak of me in the easy way which you always used.
Put no sorrow in your tone.
Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was.
Let it be spoken without effort
Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was.
There is unbroken continuity.
Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner.
All is well. Nothing is hurt; nothing is lost.
One brief moment and all will be as it was before.
How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting, when we meet again.

The peace of Christ be upon you.

Oh no IrishM,

I'm so sorry to hear your having to undergo this awful suffering and grief. :(
Loss and separation is so painful.
43 years....what a special and rare gift!

Praying that God keeps you both safe in the palm of his hands until the day you meet again.
God has promised us this day will come;
"He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death' or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away. "
They just go on ahead of us...on the journey to our eternal home.

I will keep you in my prayers, God please take away the terrible weight of grief!
Sending a big hug & all my love to you.

Hi Irishm,

Sorry to hear that.

Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam dílis.

Eternal rest, grant unto her O Lord
and let perpetual light shine upon her.

May she rest in peace. Amen.

May her soul and the souls of all the faithful departed,
through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
Amen.

Hope you are doing OK.

Knock Shrine recently shared this lovely prayer & i thought of you IrishM. Hope you are doing OK and are looking after yourself.
I know words are so not enough though.

Prayer in time of Bereavement

Lord, you are close to the broken-hearted.
Be with me now in my grief and loneliness.
Give me the courage to face my loss
and not to grieve in silence.
Be with me as I struggle
with many different and painful feelings.
Ease the hurt in my heart.
Encircle me in your love.
Help me to believe that one day
I will no longer have this deep sorrow.
May I find comfort in sharing my grief with those who understand the strong bonds of love.
Stay with me, Lord, support me.
Help me to know that your power is at work within me as I deal with my grief. Amen.

I remember you in my prayers, Irishm. I am sorry to hear about the loss of your good friend. Sometimes the psalms are comforting to pray and read. When I read this, I thought of you

The LORD is close
to the brokenhearted;
and those who are crushed
in spirit he saves.
