Default My sister is in a better place now.

I would like to thank all of you who have offered your support either to me or any other person who has encounted this disease by a loved one. My sister Sharon died on Feb 27 and I was there to be with her in her last moments on this earth. It was very peaceful and I am glad I was able to travel and get home in time. Over the last several years I have sometimes just logged on to view and to read because I was a little scared and had no idea what to say or how to ask a question. As time went on I learned what a loving and caring group of people you all are. I thank you for ideas and advice of which was very wise and taken to heart. I am going to miss my sister terribly and everyday I will miss her, but knowing she is feeling better helps me alot, she is in Gods loving arms and with our other family members and now it is up to us to spread the word of this disease and to try in help in some way. I wish you all peace and I just wanted to let you know that she is gone, now but not forever, I will see her again someday. I will check in on all of you and pass on some tricks we learned in giving the care to my sister. Necessity is the mother of invention as you all know. God Bless you. PamB

Pam I am so sorry, my sister passed with this disease February 19. I live in Indiana and my sister and family lives in Oklahoma, I felt so blessed that I was able to be with her the last 5 weeks of her life. I saw what she went thru the last few weeks of her life. I too, was also able to be with her when she breathed her last breathe and witnessed her peaceful passing. Its truely Gods belssing to see the peace after all they go thru isnt it.
I havent posted very much either, but seeing someone who has lost a sister touches me because I know how you feel. When I sit in the quiet times I have memories flooding me of the things we did as little girls, I think thats what sister are all about. I feel comforted when I remember the good and fun times we had. I hope you can have these kinds of times too and feel the comfort I do, think of her and smile.

Hi Pam,

It's strange how so many of us lost loved ones at around the same time. My mom passed away peacefully on Feb 25. It was great that you could be with your sister at the end, as I was with my mom. May you be comforted in your grief. I know Mom's in a better place but I miss her so much. I'm sure you feel that way, too.

Best wishes,

Witzz
