My beloved cousin dd lost her sister in a fatal automobile accident on Valentine's Day. She was walking when she was struck by a vehicle who fled from the accident scene. Subsequent vehicles who couldn't avoid hitting her stopped and tried to help. She was on holiday with her parents and two daughters. She was 45.
I'll miss this cousin of mine. I'll miss her infectious joy of life, her laughter, her girlish femininity, her grittiness, her love of friends and family .... her ability to survive against tremendous hardships at times .. Hurricane Katrina for one ..
I'll be heading into the Deep South with dd to spend time with family and relatives pretty soon. So I'll be out of touch..

My sincere condolences also. It is hard to lose a loved one but to lose one in this manner seems to intensify the situation. Be safe on your trip.

Dear Foam

My thoughts and heart are with You, and so is my tears right now. The sudden lost of a love one, and on Valentines Day! Is somewhat even harder, I am talking out of experience, when it comes to lost. 'Cause it was on the Valentines Day, six years ago, that I lost myself and everything I had, except my lovely sons in a house-fire. But, me I built a new home in Cyberspace and meet lovely persons like You, my dear neighbour. If we Cyberians can lend You our shoulders in this hard times for You, my shoulder is all Yours.

Valentines Day is also a day I remember my little brother (MC-accident)and my sister (suicide). Dear Foam, cry cry and let it all out, and then when You are ready You can think of her as she was with love in heart and a little smile on Your face.

I understand the hopeless feelings that comes when she has struggled and lived through Katrina, and everything. Is it worth it? YES, Foam it is, it makes us stronger, but it puts new lenses on our eyes and change our values of life. Small signs becomes bigger ... and You are gonna feel inner peace and happiness just by looking at a flower, 'cause a flower lives, and are precious too, and that beautiness in Your inner contains a part of Your cousin dd.

i Love You Neigbour in Cyber

luxie..
i did enjoy our little mini chat ..
actually i found it highly diverting.., but when we were finished there were no emails to check or to write .. so i left.
the trip will be healing..

irishman.., phos..
thank you for your condolences and thoughts ..
xo

anna,
it's funny .. on valentine's day you posted an image of an o'keefe orchid. i was really struck by it because that day my husband brought home an orchid for me. i was struck by it's sensuous beauty as well as intimidated by having to take care of it. and then my cousin dd (it is her sister who passed away, one of my other cousin's who passed away) posted a picture of her sister on her facebook account. i was struck by theis particular beauty of my cousin, the sister of dd. her beauty reminded me of the orchid that my husband had brought home. a white orchid with a red center.
anyway, i'm so sorry for your losses. fire is devastating .. i'm so thankful to hear that your children survived. and i know how it is to loose siblings. my brother passed away very unexpectantly 12 1/2 years ago. i've also lost other cousins due to suicide, other wrecks, overdose, heart disease ..
i think altogether 10 - 12 .. i've lost count..

love back at you .. xo

foam ...

how awful. my heart to you and your family.

thinking of you ... esp. as i travel to quaint and very old little villages ~ they make me think of you.

guess who?

The Phosgene Kid said...

Odd how we get to a point in life the only time families seem to get together is weddings and funerals. It is then when you realize how much you miss them all.

ANNA-LYS said...

Looking in to give You more hugs

My love, thoughts, and prayers dear Foam. I was upset to read this, for a college student I know was hit by a car this past weekend. He is fighting for his life - our star baseball player at Post. My hugs to you...xoxo
