Done

I just heard my mentor died this morning. His first name and my father's first name were the same. My mentor was more of a a father to me in recent years. They are both being buried on Wednesday. I'll attend my mentor's service. I know he would want me there. There is going to be a huge cookout after - that makes me smile because it is exactly what he would want. The situation is sad though. Can I be done with death now? I can't take any more....

I am sorry I have only just caught up with your blogs.

Dear Enola,
My thoughts are with you.
I dont usually go to churches, but given I am going to Rome next week I will surely enter a church. I will light a candle for you and say a prayer for you and your sister. Because whatever water is under the bridge and whatever your feelings, bereavement is tough.

And I hope you are being caring to yourself.

Holy shit, Enola! I've just been reading your last few posts. Life is too friggin' weird. WTF?!

I hope you gave baby the formula and took that pill...and I hope you get some rest...and I hope you do whatever else you can think of just to be nice to yourself. I'll be thinking of you.
(((((((((((((((((Enola))))))))))))))

Sorry to hear this! Just remember there in a better place and you will meet again just not in this lifetime.

I am glad for one thing -- your mentor went after your dad. Grief for your mentor will be a more positive, healing hurt -- if that makes any sense.

Peace and rest to you.

That's all...

It never rains but it pours.... Wow. Praying for you today, Enola - you and your family.

Perhaps that was your mentors last gift to you is the distraction of your fathers funeral with the celebration of the life your mentor lived.

I am so sorry. I cannot imagine what you are feeling. You are in my prayers.
