Life after……funeral

I haven’t blog for a while….following the death of my friend, Lory. I drove back to Alamosa for the Rosary and funeral, last Sunday and Monday. 

The Sacred Heart Church was full for both services which filled my heart seeing how many lives Lory had touched and how many folks wanted to come and pay their respects. 

Monday night I went to a meeting of the book club I had been a member of before we went on the road.  It was such a joy to see everyone again, share a meal and, yes, we even talked about the scheduled book.

Thank you, Nina, for welcoming into your home during my stay. It was so comforting to sit on your patio and watch the ducks in the pond and see the deer around your home.

I’ve had a lot of difficulty mourning for my dear friend, Lory, but she would want us all to go on and live life to the fullest….I’ll do that, but with a tear in my eye.

Remember, you are loved.

  2. Hello Bobbie and Jim,

    I got your message, and can't tell you how much your sweet words meant. I tried to call you this evening but missed you...will try again tomorrow.

    My heart is heavy for your loss. Lory was very fortunate to have you for a friend. There is no doubt that your love and support made a huge difference in her life.

    I will look forward to hearing your voice and getting "caught up."
    Remember...You Are Loved
