The great storm is over, lift up your wings and fly [Jul. 30th, 2009|04:40 pm]

[Current Mood |sadsad]

My mother-in-law called at lunchtime. Bruce has died. He has escaped the body that failed him, and found the release he sought.

He has flown free. My tears are for Ferrett's mom, who must now find a way to cope with a Bruce-shaped hole in her life. And for his kids and grandkids, to whom he was so dear.

We will miss him.

I'm sorry for you, the Ferrett, and Bruce's family. I pray that he will have peace and comfort in the next phase of existence.

Namaste.

Condolences and wine to you both. (Wine sent through space-time warp in order to arrive at safe stage to drink it.)

My all-time favorite post of Ferrett's was the one sometime back when he talked about his perception of Bruce changed from when he was a teenager. Sometimes it can take years and some maturing and life experiences of our own before we can truly appreciate some people. It sounded like Bruce was a good guy who was a great spouse, father figure and friend to those around him. Good for you, Bruce. In the end you weren't dealt a good card. I would have wished for you to go out in your sleep in your eighties or nineties after having many more happy years with your family. However, you were good to those around you and loved and respected by them, and that's a great legacy to have.

I can relate to the mix. I'm sad for your loss, but I'm glad he's not suffering anymore.

How does one cope with a ____ -shaped hole in one's life? Unimaginable.

I feel for Patsy and you all, I agree with your description-he's now free of the body that failed him. Call if you need anything.

So sorry. It will take some time to get over. I lost my brother in March and am still not over it. Best wishes for you and Ferrett.

*hugs* I'm truly sorry for the loss; he sounds like an amazing man. I'm glad he got to make his own choices, I'm glad he had family that supported him in that, and I'm glad to hear he's free. *more hugs*
