and his wife died of breast cancer in 1995. Their only other son has now died suddenly (heart problems). I feel so sad for them all and I am too far away to hug him. It is times like this that you hate being away from your family and homeland.

My deepest and sincerest condolences to you and yours.
I read your white butterfly post first and I know you have found a degree of comfort in knowing that they are all together and at peace.

Thank you. It does help in believing they are at peace and are together waiting for us to join them some day.

Sorry to hear of your loss. I know how it feels and the pain from the loss never truly goes away. My son was only 19(1984)when the angels took him in their fold. May angels take you in their arms and help to ease your sadness. A hug for you from California,USA Kathy
The Loan
“I’ll lend you for a little time,
A child of mine,” God said;
“For you to love the while he lives,
And mourn for when he’s dead.
It may be four or five years,
Or twenty-two or three
But will you, ’till I call him back
Take care of him for Me?
He’ll bring his charms to gladden you,
And shall his stay be brief
You’ll have his lovely memories,
As solace for your grief
I cannot promise he will stay,
Since all from earth return
But there are lessons taught down there,
I want this child to learn
I’ve looked in the wide world over
In my search for teachers true,
And from the throngs that crowd life’s lane,
I have selected you,
Now will you give him all your love,
Not think the labor vain,
Nor hate me when I come
To take him back again?
I fancied that I heard them say:
‘Dear Lord, Thy will be done!
For all the joy Thy child shall bring,
The risk of grief we’ll run.
We’ll shelter him while we may,
And for all the happiness we’ve known,
Forever grateful stay.
But shall the angels call him
Much sooner than we’ve planned,
We’ll brave the bitter grief that comes,
And surely understand.’

So sorry to hear that. It is so sad. We have had so many deaths in our small town lately. It seems like a new one at least 3 times a week. Prayers for you & your family

May God bless all of you at this tragic time. There must be nothing more painful than loosing your child. And how you could give 2 of them back to God, I'll never know. We are promised comfort in all times, so I will claim that for you and your brother.

My dear there is nothing that can prepare us for the loss of a loved one - this is very sad - sad for your brother and very sad for you - because you can not comfort him - as you would want to - but please know that we all will be praying for each of you - to get you through this time of sorrow.

So sorry to hear of this sadness in your family nualaa. We do not understand why God allows these things to happen but never forget He is in control. He also knows how sad it makes you to be so far away . Lean on Him. You will both be in my prayers. *

My heart goes out to you and your family; it is tragic to outlive one's children, not the "normal" pattern of life.
We will be praying for the "Peace that passes understanding" to settle upon you and your family and see you through this unspeakably difficult time.
Blessings,
Diane
