Subject: RE: Healing thoughts & prayers please (Nigel Paterson)
From: Janie
Date: 28 Mar 13 - 11:03 PM

Remembering the gathering after my sister's funeral, and it was joyous. I think officially wakes are pre-funeral but here in the USA they are often sad and solemn formal occasions at funeral homes. People flocked to the house post-funeral, however, to truly celebrate her life. Old friends from long ago gathered, plus family from near and far and neighbors and newer friends we didn't know. Old friends included many of the people the three of us sisters melded with in our twenties, the period when we truly became heart friends and not just sisters. Kaye had left and come home. Annie and I still lived far away and had not been with this crew for many years. Fiddles, banjos, guitars and basses appeared, there was singing, clogging and dancing in the hallway, cherished and joyful memories shared, pictures and photos passed around. A true reunion of not just blood family but of the communities in which she had been embedded and to which she had contributed so much across time. The ladies on the church committee who set up the food and some neighbors were somewhat agape, but still appreciative and celebratory. There are memories that still bring tears. But Kaye's post-funeral Wake was a truly joyful celebration of her life, and the memory brings me great joy and solace, even this many years after her death.

May it be so for you and yours, Nigel.

Have people in the UK set there clocks ahead one hour for summer? If not, when will you do so? We have done it here in the US.

I used this site to convert the time. I hope it is accurate. http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html

Some wonderful, hope-filled, humourous posts here. They really do bring a sense of joy back into our lives.
             Jane's funeral will be held at 1.00pm (UK time), Thursday, 11th April. If you're up & about, maybe pause for a second or two & join our Family over the miles that separate so many of us. You will be most welcome.
                                                          With Love,

Good morning, dear ones,
Here in the hills of New Hampshire there is still well over a foot of snow on the ground. Spring is in the air, but the forecast suggests it will be late April before we see any crocuses or daffodils. We are weary of winter, but we have hope that Spring will return.

Nigel and Ann, it is early yet in your bereavement. The winter of sadness and anger and depression will run their course. But Jane will always be in your hearts, and you will never stop loving her, and her love for you lives on in your hearts. Your gentle Spring will return, not the same Springs as you may remember, but hope and warmth and light are not gone forever.

As I contemplate why I am not already fast asleep I can't help but mull over why I have checked on this thread almost every day for a year at waking and at going Oggies... first and last thing I did most days and many times during the waking hours.

I was uplifted. I was dashed. I was upset. I was comforted. I felt anger. I felt joy. I was unnerved. I was calmed. I felt helpless. I felt empowered...

This journey, here and there, has been shared by so many good folk. So many wonderful posts. Meaningful, enlightening, caring posts made by people of the same description.

Thanks.

I know so very little,
but this I know; We are born from love for love our whole life long. All the countless thousands of words of feeling aimed at you and yours, prove that you will never be alone without love.
Perhaps singing so you can; hear, dance, play along, love will even whisper so you can sleep.

In our family, in the old Minnesota farmhouse, it was "Good night, sleep tight, don't let the bedbugs bite".

My sister had a high school friend stay over one night. When she heard that, she shrieked "Do you have bedbugs??"

Sleep tight, the seas are calm.

Maple Slurpup... mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm! I get mine from La Belle Province at $12.49 a litre! Half or less than most retailers here. Of course, I also like to go to a sugar camp and partake of the festivities and buy directly from the camps. Although, right now, I wouldn't eat any off the snow with the temps as warm as they are... good way to end up with a sore throat and maybe a cold.

Dear Nigel and Ann. Here in Maine we are collecting maple sap and boiling it outside to make syrup for the year- one of our delights. As the sweet, steamy fragrance rises on this chilly spring day I'm hoping you will find sweet pockets of amber beauty in the form of good memories.

Still here together.

It is a chill night here on the northeast Piedmont of North Carolina. After a mild winter, spring is slow to arrive. The sky is clear and the moon is full, shining down behind dark tree branches that appear to starkly etch it's surface.

Please forgive me if others have alluded to these LINES in previous postings. I was a late starter on this prolonged metaphorical , nautical journey...but I hope this provides some comfort or food for thought.


                  THE SAILING SHIP

What is death ?
I am standing on the sea shore ,
A ship sails in the morning breeze and starts for the ocean.
She is an object of beauty and I stand watching her .
Til at last she fades on the horizon and someone at my side says :
"She is gone ."

Gone ! Where ?
Gone from my sight - that is all .
She is just as large in the masts , hull and spars as she was when I saw her
And just as able to bear her load of living freight to its destination.
The diminished size and total loss of sight is in me , not in her .


And just at the moment when someone at my side says ,
"She is gone "
There are others who are watching her coming and other voices take up a glad shout :
" There she comes "
- and that is dying . An horizon and just the limit of our sight .
Lift us up , Oh Lord , that we may see further .

BISHOP CHARLAES HENRY BRENT ( 1862 - 1926 )

Nigel- It is your and Ann's time, Jane's husband's and childrens' time- of grieving. Feel what you feel, express that which you can express, and remember that there are many friends thinking of you all.

My grandmother outlived six of her nine children. "It's not supposed to be like this!" she said. She found ways to remember them while continuing to find joy in her life. You can too.

Make some music. It doesn't have to be beautiful or complete or be shared with anyone else. Hug Ann as often as possible. Focus on your breathing, on the world's beauty, on those who love you. Appreciate the depth and range of your emotions. Speak your love.

Can't write much yet...hurting too much...the loss of our belovéd Daughter, Jane has hit us hard...lost many relatives & friends over the years, but this is of a different order & the order is wrong...aren't children supposed to outlive their parents? Can't conceal the anger in my grief. In time, we will find ways of living with the pain, I know that to be true, but right now, feelings are raw.
