Lucy just died. Erin and John were there in time.|
I am sad.
Thank you. Waiting for Erin to call.
It's very much appreciated.
I am grateful for your wishes. Her husband is an Irish Catholic with lots of faith and has borne up under previous losses with much grace. I pray he will be able to keep his calm faith through this.

Re: Hugs and Sympathy
Thank you very much.
I'm so sorry Gini. You know that if there is absolutely anything I can do you only need to call me.
My thoughts are with you and yours.
I'm feeling weirdly silenced right now. The people I know who knew her are all together there, and I'm not really a part of that group and wouldn't dream of trespassing on the immediacy of their grief - even if I knew where they are. In the past, death meant that I had decisions to make, arrangements to see to, or at least family and friends with whom I shared the common bond of knowing and family. Now, I just feel mute and helpless. I'd call, if I would even know what to say. As it is, Ferrett is feeling really shut out because I can't find words.
I'm really lost, and I don't know where to start with that.
Sending peaceful thoughts your way.
my condolences to your girls on the loss of their grandmother, and to you on the loss of an important influence on your life.
She is a great loss, and we are fortunate to have the good memories.
My thoughts are with you in this time of need.
May her memory always be for a blessing.
It will be a blessing and a comfort. For now, it's a sense of loss. Thank you.
Deepest sympathies and condolences to everyone.
I am so sorry to hear that, did you get to say your goodbyes, if not I hope the fact that she passed peacefully away is a small measure of comfort.
I did not get a chance, but she was not even conscious when Erin arrived. It was very peaceful and painless, and that is a great comfort.
